Sarah Magid is an organic baker based in Brooklyn, New York, where she bakes custom cakes and sweets for weddings, parties, and corporate events. She believes in eating at least one sweet every day.


Sarah grew up in a California beach town where nature, the ocean, wild gardens, and her family’s backyard fruit trees inspired her.

Despite the reputation of organic baking, the New York Times praised the book by saying there was “nothing crunchy about these stylish desserts.”
