Fresh's Sugar Face Polish, with brown sugar and strawberries, sounds more like breakfast than a cosmetic. Even so, it's got a lot of fans, even with its $55 price tag.

From the endlessly delicious Red Hook shop Baked: cookies, cupcakes (mojito cupcakes are their newest), cakes (like the dark chocolate cake infused with a salty caramel, caramel chocolate ganache, topped with fleur de sel) brownies, marshmallows, granola, a cookbook and now wedding cakes.

Architect Rafael Viñoly has created a plan for the future of the 125-year-old Domino Sugar factory in Williamsburg called The New Domino. See it at the AIA Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Pl. [3rd/Bleecker] 212.683.0023, through Saturday.

Cienfuegos, the hidden bar you get to through Carteles, 443 6th St. [1st/A] 212.614.6818, tacks sugary—at first—with cocktails such as the Ernesto, where they add sugar cane syrup to rum. After that, things get interesting, when Fernet Branca, pink grapefruit juice, lime juice, Malbec, and maraschino liqueur hit the mix.

Cookie Mix
Four varieties of all-natural, ready-to-go cookie mix from New Jersey's Lazy Baker: chocolate chip, double chocolate, oatmeal/cherry/raisin/spice, and brown sugar/pecan shortbread. $33.97 for four cans, each can makes over two dozen cookies.

Sugar Hill got its name because it was the area in Harlem where, it was said, you could live the 'sweet life.' Take a tour with the help of this nifty map and guide. $3

Whoopie Pies
Irresistible whoopie pies and more are Wannahavacookie, now at the Limelight Marketplace, 47 W. 20th [6th]. Newest flavor: a lemon ginger buttercream whoopie pie.
