Urbana, Ill. (WCIA)
Urbana Business Association is excited to host the Market IN the Square this weekend!
Shaii Smith, Owner of Sugga Shaii Sweets, and Kent Miles with Illinois Willows are here to show off a sampling of what you’ll find at this weekend’s market.
Shaii – I like to think my southern inspired desserts provide people with a feeling of home and sometimes a taste of adventure. Everything I make is homemade from scratch. It also allows me to share my culture and background while put smiles on peoples faces.
People always ask me what all do I bake and can I provide alternative solutions for dietary restrictions. I always tell people if you can think of it I can create it so always feel free to contact me. Upon request I can make sugar free, gluten free, and vegan items.
Every item is made from scratch and most recipes has been passed on from generation to generation. I bake from a place of love using seasonal food items. Because it is a small business I am able to make customized goods geared towards various dietary restrictions.
