About Posies & Sugar


Hi there!


My name is Heather, and for as long as I can remember, I have loved the process of creating tasty desserts for others to enjoy, to celebrate life with, to pause over and enjoy a sweet moment with loved ones.

I started Posies & Sugar in the fall of 2017 out of my kitchen in my hometown of Santa Barbara, CA. I do the baking and creative work, and my husband Matt runs all things marketing and numbers (and if we’re being honest, he does most of the taste testing).

I believe that the beauty in life is worth celebrating, worth throwing confetti in the air over and eating a slice of cake (or two). I believe in flowers and in being kind to ourselves and in simple, good things like peach pie.

My grandma used to called me her little posy, and so I started calling her my big posy…and the name Posy just stuck. My other grandma used to squeeze my cheeks and call me sugar. So this one is for you, grandmas, and for my mama who passed along her love of baking to me.

When we’re not whipping up a cake or crunching numbers on just how much a raspberry tart costs to make, Matt and I love hanging with our daughter, riding our bikes, camping, and good margaritas.
