RICHMOND, Va. -- A Richmond baker has turned a custom cake side gig into a full-time job with a new bakery in Jackson Ward.

Sara Ayyash, a veteran of the Jefferson Hotel kitchen, last month opened Sugar & Salt at 416 N. Second St.

Ayyash spent the previous decade as the executive pastry chef at the Jefferson and was ready to do something different. So she decided to jump deeper into Sugar & Salt, which she had run part time since 2014, by opening a storefront.
