Let them eat cake! SusieCakes Sacramento Now Open!
By Kearsten Shepherd
If you happen to have one of those pesky resolutions about not eating sugar, or deserts, or well anything dealing with cutting calories – keeping that resolution just got harder! SusieCakes (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest), the self-dubbed “All American” bakery just opened its first Sacramento location, bringing an array of tasty options from custom cakes to cookies and pies – made from scratch. The organization prides itself on using the “finest and freshest ingredients” and in-house bakers in creating theses amazing sweet treats.
The new Sacramento location in the Pavilions Shopping Center (563 Pavilions Lane, Sacramento) has a retro-chic feel, a perfect fit in this upscale center, providing customers with a blast from the past but with a contemporary feel. The store is open Monday thru Friday from 10 am – 7 pm to give employees a sense of work-life balance according to SusieCakes founder Susan Sarich. Sarich started with one store located in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles which quickly grew to include six additional locations in Southern California and five locations in the San Francisco/Bay Area. The Sacramento shop is SusieCakes 12th location in California.
Now let’s get to the good stuff – and by good stuff I mean everything they have! I’m not a huge sweets person, but everything I tasted blew me away. Each of the signature layer cakes was better than the next and tasted like your grandma made them. I truly enjoyed each and every one, but my absolute favorite was the carrot cake – it was like no carrot cake I have ever had before!
In addition to their signature cakes, SusieCakes also offers signature cupcakes ($3.25 each) in Vanilla, Chocolate Chocolate, Fluffy Coconut, Luscious Lemon, Strawberry, Mocha, Peanut Butter, Red Velvet, and Chocolate Mint, as well as seasonal cupcake flavors daily. You can also purchase miniature cupcakes ($20 per dozen), classic cookies (chocolate chip, frosted sugar, snickerdoodles and whoopee pies) and bars (lemon, 7-layer, brownies) at varying prices, along with SusieCake signature cookies – Susie’s Nutty Cookie and the Sweetheart Sandwich Cookie. In addition, you can get homemade pudding (banana or vanilla), cheesecakes (sour cream or seasonal), and pies (seasonal fruit and cream fillings).
SusieCakes officially opened on Saturday, January 24. Check out this great new addition to Sacramento and tell us what you think!
