Hello! My name is Arda and I am the owner of SugarCube Marshmallows!
Throughout my whole life, I have always had a passion for food and cooking. Being a first generation Asian American, I have always been influenced by my family's cooking and the flavors of my family's country, as well as exposure to other Asian cuisines from my community. Growing up, I was always involved in the kitchen with my mother or helping out my father at his restaurant. Because of this, I developed this sense of wonder and curiosity about food and I just knew that I wanted to be involved in this world in some sort of way as an adult.
SugarCube Marshmallows started out as an idea for a couple years when I first started learning how to make homemade marshmallows for fun to share with my friends and family. As I continued making more due to requests from friends, I started to get more creative with the flavors, especially Asian flavors that have been such a big part of my life. Looking around, I noticed that there isn't really any other marshmallow product out there with Asian flavors that I grew up tasting. This got me thinking and eventually I decided to take the plunge and started an official business! Marshmallows have always been that iconic treat from my childhood growing up here in America. With the combination of two flavors, two cultures, and two worlds; I believe it is a great representation of who I am and what is "Asian American".
All of our marshmallows are homemade in my kitchen with all food safety and precautions in place. Hope you all enjoy my little creations!
