If you follow me on instagram, you already know that I’m completely and utterly obsessed with Sugar Defined. I interviewed Chiyon, the fabulous owner + baker extroadinaire, on there for a feature a while back, and it’s definitely a must read. If you missed it, click here!
So, my manfriend and I recently hit up NoVa for more nom adventures, and a trip to Fairfax wouldn’t be complete without getting treats from Sugar Defined. We got 5 different things, and as always, everything was on point. This time around, we snacked on chocolate chip pumpkin bread, dulce de leche thumbprint cookies, lemon pie dessert cups, matcha on vanilla mini cupcakes and suspiros (aka meringue cookies).
There’s just something so magical about her baked goods. She honestly makes some of the best cupcakes I’ve ever tasted, and her mini matchas are absolute musts.
Some of my other personal favorites include her brownies and brownie cookies. Although they’re the epitome of decadence, her chocolate chip pumpkin bread and dulce de leche thumbprint cookies are total winners as well.
Pricing’s super affordable, but there’s a minimum requirement for various items. For example, if you’re looking to try her brownie cookies – ermergerd, you want to try her brownie cookies – you need to get at least a dozen. That’s not a huge deal though since that’s only $9! I recommend getting a slew of items to share though because sharing is caring. If you have any questions about her sweets, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
And for those of you looking to indulge, Chiyon recommends that you place your order a week or two in advance. A minimum of 48 hours is required for all orders, and it doesn’t ensure availability so definitely make sure to get to her earlier rather than later.
Follow her on instagram to see more of her creations, and make sure to browse her full menu here. She offers delivery for up to 30 miles, but pickup’s easy peasy! Simply shoot her a text when you’re in front of Sugar Defined, and she’ll come out with your treats, fully masked to ensure your safety and hers.
