Just Like Grandma Used to Make

The Sugar Fairy (Stacie Blair), is a ServSafe Certified & Insured from-scratch baker of +30 years' experience. Stacie’s love of baking began as a small child while working in the kitchen with her grandmother. (This is also where her famous Banana Bread and pie crust originated from!) Following the traditions of her grandmother, she always bakes her goods with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Nothing is processed or out of a box. She purchases her honey, syrup and pie fruit from local family farms, and all her dairy is from local suppliers.  She uses real butter in her kitchen, and all of her pie crusts and pastry doughs are handmade.

The Beginning

In 2019 Stacie founded The Sugar Fairy Bakes LLC, and began her baking career as a home processor selling at local farmer markets and craft fairs. Later, once the pandemic hit, she pivoted to online pre-ordering with local delivery. The dream to go brick and mortar and open up a charming and welcoming bakery storefront in Mechanicville, NY where community members can gather, became a reality December of 2021.


Welcome to Malta

In April 2023, Stacie opened up a second location in Malta NY. While Mechanicville provides a “cure and cozy” feel, the Malta shop is more of an upscale bakeshop and coffee house. All baking is done in the Mechanicville bakery therefore Malta is retail only. In addition to Maltas vast treat and coffee menu, Malta also serves as the Bakery’s cake hub for all cakes and cupcakes. 

Happiness is Homemade

Stacie believes happiness is homemade! With her two storefronts, she hopes to share her creations with others who find joy and comfort in eating the sweetest little things! To Stacie, baking is a labor of love. A love that is meant to be shared with others so you can see them smile. 

The Sugar Fairy Bakes offers a wide variety of treats - cakes, pies, pastries, bread & more! Gift baskets, and party trays can also be made to order, and our popular Monthly Cookie Subscription is back!
