THINGS WE LOVE // food + vendors + supporting small businesses + this lovely lady in the photo above.
That beautiful lady with the bright smile in the photo above is Randi from Sugar Euphoria! We were ecstatic when Randi agreed to answer a few questions for us about herself, her amazing Kickstarter Campaign and her lovely bakery. Randi’s bright smile and sweet personality is extremely contagious and we absolutely love any and every opportunity we have to work with her.
Randi owns Sugar Euphoria, a custom cake design studio and bakery in Raleigh, North Carolina. Not only does Sugar Euphoria bake cakes, but they also bake sweets for dessert bars, like cupcakes, macarons, cake pops, and more. We definitely encourage you to stop by some time and if you do we suggest you try ANYTHING with lemon! It’s our favorite.
We had the chance to ask Randi a few questions and we thought you all would enjoy hearing a little more about the lady behind the cakes.
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Nassau, Bahamas – the country of sun, sand, and sea.
How did you get in to baking?
Growing up, I spent every Sunday baking with my mom and grandmother. It wasn’t until after I graduated college that I really started to explore the world of cake design.
What is your favorite item on the menu?
Hands down, the brownie sandwiches! Especially the cookie dough and chocolate ganache version.
What was your inspiration for the Kickstarter Campaign?
Sugar Euphoria has seen exponential growth in the past year. Our current space was perfect when we first moved in, but now we’re getting really cramped. In order to continue to create quality desserts, we need to expand and I feel like Kickstarter is the fastest way to rally support and funding.
Sterling Brown from “This is Us” is my new crush!

If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?
My IPhone, passport, detangler, Kitchenaid mixer and CakeSafe.

Sugar Euphoria’s quant shop that the team started with in 2015 can’t keep up any longer with the high demand for their delicious + sweet treats. We are so happy for them to have found a new store front, bigger and better than before! But, they need your help. There are a lot of costs that go in to opening a new shop, especially for the kitchen. Your donation will help Randi and the Sugar Euphoria team complete the kitchen upgrades with everything needed to create amazing sweets + treats. This includes a walk-in cooler, bowls, mixers, ovens, shelving, tables and pans.
