Sift & Gather
Baker and mom of three Amber Markland started the Olympia, Washington-based Sift & Gather after falling in love with baking as a volunteer with nonprofit Birthday Cakes 4 Free. In the years since, she’s found her own style prepping goodies inspired by the Pacific Northwest. You won’t find fondant on Amber’s custom cakes — you’ll likely see her incorporate flowers currently in season in the area. In addition to offering cakes for special events, the menu includes Amber’s famed cinnamon rolls and sweet buns (during non-COVID times).
