Sugarland was easy to deal with when I signed the contract but closer to the wedding it was horrible. They were difficult to get to respond to emails and extremely disorganized. It was stressful to deal with them. I would expect a more professional company for the amount they charge. While they did provide a yummy product in the end, I would not recommend them.

Sugarland responded with the following comments:

Gosh, we really wish you would have booked a wedding with us. We have great services and would be happy to deliver cupcakes set them up, decorate them with your monogram etc. But, when you specifically tell us you don't want to pay any extra for any of those things, we try to respect your budget. In your case we did what we do for every other regular cupcake order. We baked them, boxed them and had them ready and waiting when you said you wanted to pick them up. To call after the fact and ask for a full refund or " trash us on the online review site" isn't cool. Best wishes for a long and happy marriage :)

Sugarland provided our wedding cake, and our guests were extremely complimentary about the cake. Truly, that's the most important consideration-- that you have a wonderfully tasting (and looking) cake -- and Sugarland delivered in that department. It looked great and tasted wonderful. That said, of all the vendors we dealt with for our wedding, Sugarland was the one that seemed the least "with it." Our initial meeting with a member of the Chapel Hill staff was very casual and not at all like the tasting experience with other vendors. We were given cupcakes to taste different cake options but not necessarily the options available to us for the wedding cakes. We had a number of questions about those options and the related costs and didn't feel our questions were really answered. We found out later that the answers we had gotten were incorrect or incomplete, and since we didn't receive a detailed agreement, we weren't completely sure what we were agreeing to purchase or the total cost. And, Sugarland cakes are not inexpensive. Of all the cake vendors we considered, they were the most expensive. As we got closer to our wedding date, we did meet with a more senior person to finalize our order. We again felt somewhat rushed through the process, but we at least felt more confident about what we were ordering and that the cake would arrive as promised. And, it did arrive, though late enough that our event planner called to ask if it was coming. I'll reiterate that the cake was great; where Sugarland needs to improve is in their professionalism. There is much room for improvement there.

Sugarland made my wedding cake and cupcakes, and we received nothing but compliments regarding their taste and overall appearance. The cake itself came out beautifully and was everything I'd hoped for, delicious taste but the shape that fondant afforded. I've never tasted actually good fondant icing, but they did something magical there! The only problem we had was about a week and a half before the wedding, where email problems on their end made communication very difficult, and they weren't super responsive with phone calls and getting back to me. But in the end, it's the food that matters, and in that category, they get an A+ for sure.

Instead of a wedding cake, we had personalized cupcakes and mini desserts provided by Sugarland. They did an excellent job with the display at the wedding and everything tasted amazing. Our guests went out of their way to tell us how delicious the desserts were. Our only complaint was that months before we had spent a long time tasting and picking out the exact flavors we wanted, but when Sugarland contacted us a few weeks before the wedding to confirm our order they had no record of the flavors we had picked out. Since it was right before the wedding, we were pressed for time and hurriedly picked out some flavors (many of which we weren't given an opportunity to taste again). That added an element of stress that we shouldn't have had to deal with fortunately it all worked since everything tasted great!

Hi Chavi! We're so sorry about the mix up! We know wedding planning is stressful and we try not to add to that. We're so happy you liked your desserts and thought they looked and tasted great!

Our venue works with Sugarland bakery for a packaged price that "comes" with a cake. We met with Sugarland in Cameron Village on one of their set days for wedding cake tasting. Being they had lots of couples coming in that day, they had pre-plated cakes to sample. When we weren't sold on any of those, they did allow us to sample some other flavors they had in cupcake form. (All of the cakes were delicious though) The main frustration was that I had no forewarning that this would be our tasting and final design meeting in one. So we had to quick make up our mind as to what we wanted for everything. Since I had come with some questions as to what was "included" with our venue package, I had to quick process their answers and come up with a design. I'm the type who doesn't make impulse or quick decisions so this flustered me. But we decided on something simple and when I saw our cake on the wedding day, I loved it. And the couple bites I did get of cake, it was delicious!

Sugarland responded with the following comments:

We're so sorry you felt rushed into making a decision! We typically like to schedule separate meetings for design after cake tastings. At the DoubleTree, they know a lot of their brides come from out of town so they try to set up tasting/design meeting combos. We wish you would have let us known you felt rushed, we're more than happy to accommodate multiple meetings to make sure you get exactly what you want!

The people at Sugarland were very easy to work with. Everything was clearly specified, and what we had contracted for is exactly what arrived, on time, the day of the wedding. The cake was beautiful, perfectly decorated and absolutely delicious. My daughter had a spring wedding, and the Mimosa cake was a perfect fit - light and citrusy. I felt that the price was very fair for the quality of cake; it was easily the best tasting cake that we had tried (we tried cakes from four bakeries). The cake the day of the wedding was just as fresh and delicious.

My husband and I wanted something different, unique, and extremely yummy for our wedding. We did the small gelato bar with four flavors, which worked out perfect because everyone got to choose. I got to pick my favorite, my husband picked his, my mother picked hers, and we all agreed on the last - everyone was happy! We also did cake shooters, which were the perfect size pairing with the gelato. It was just enough to give everyone the taste and style of "cake and ice cream" on a much fancier scale! We did two different flavors for the shooters, chocolate and Casey's cake. Sugarland also did a single layer round for us to cut at the reception and custom-matched the design on our invitations. Everything was delicious and beautiful; our guests raved! I did think it ended up being a little but expensive - we went slightly over budget in this area, but it was very, very good, so worth it!

I worked with A Southern Soiree and Sugarland came highly recommended by them. My wedding planner and I went to Sugarland in Raleigh for a cake tasting and had an absolute blast! The girls at Sugarland brought out 15 different cupcakes along with coffee and other goodies - I was immediately sold on them! They worked so well with me and my husband the whole time we were wedding planning. At the final meeting I completely changed my mind and changed the design of my cake! Sugarland was more than accommodating with the changes and my cake turned out perfectly.

After shopping around other wedding cake bakeries, none compared to Sugarland. I still have guests from the wedding raving about how delicious and beautiful our cake turned out! I can't wait for our one year anniversary because Sugarland is going to remake us the top tier of our cake to enjoy!

Although I left the cake mostly up to my parents since I live out of state, I know they really loved their entire experience with Sugarland. I was really set on having a Tiramisu-flavored wedding cake and Sugarland was more than willing to give it their best shot even though it was not on their list of flavors. If you choose them for your wedding cake, you get a free mini cake within a year of your wedding, so I decided to use it to try out the Tiramisu-flavored cake before making the final decision on flavors before my wedding, which was totally fine with them. Although I didn't choose the Tiramisu flavor after all, I really appreciated being able to try it out for free. We ended up going with Cappuccino Bavarian and Chocolate Raspberry Mousse, which were both so delicious. I also appreciated that it was very easy to correspond with the bakery over email to give them final direction on decor - needless to say, the cake turned out beautiful!

The cake was AWESOME! Not only did it look great, it tasted great. Everyone is still raving about it. I can't wait until our first anniversary when we get to go back to Sugarland and eat more cake (instead of freezing the top layer, Sugarland will provide two fresh cakes - one in each flavor- for our anniversary. How cool is that?!?)

The Catering Manager and other employees at Sugarland provided excellent service for a destination wedding and a bride and groom with special dietary needs. My daughter found the combination of a delicious gluten-free cake, beautiful decorations, and transportation and set-up on an island with access only by ferry and golf cart transportation to the reception venue at Sugarland. The Sugarland staff was very flexible with meetings and order changes. The cake decorator was able to incooperate the design from the wedding gown, the touch of the beach, and fresh flowers into a lovely decorated cake for the bohemian beach wedding. It was picture perfect. The transportation and set-up was quite reasonable. Finally, the cake was delicious and enjoyed by all.

I am so glad that we chose Sugarland to bake our wedding cake. Our guests are still raving about that delicious coconut wedding cake! The people at Sugarland are so nice to work with during the planning stage. You are invited to taste all their cakes and if it isn't on their menu, they will make it for you. I don't think there is a cake that they cannot make for you. We had flowers put on our cake and they gladly accepted delivery from our florist and placed them on the cake. The cake was delivered on time and the set up was just beautiful. I highly recommend Sugarland Bakery. Bravo!

I used Sugarland for my wedding cake and grooms cake. They were very responsive and professional and were able to make the cakes exactly like the pictures I had sent them.
We chose a chocolate cake and a coconut cake for the grooms cake which was delicious and the almond with raspberry filling for the wedding cake. Everyone could not stop eating the cakes- they were so delicious.
The only problem we had was the top of our wedding cake had a huge bubble in the icing and looked a little odd during the ceremony.
I would definitely still recommend them. They were very professional, accommodating and produced delicious and beautiful cakes.

Sugarland did a beautiful job on my wedding cake! We had a 4 tier gluten free chocolate cake with cannoli and chocolate ganache fillings, and none of our guests could even tell it was a gluten free cake.
They also made our Grooms cake- a custom design of beer bottles in an ice bucket- it came out amazing and was a big hit at the wedding. They are very talented.

Sugarland created a beautiful cake for us on very short notice (less than one week!). We gave them the basic color scheme and theme of our wedding (we wanted it to reflect my culture which is South Asian). Using one of their existing cakes as a basis, they created a beautiful cake with a South Asian paisley/peacock motif in fondant. We got many compliments on how beautiful our cake was and how good it tasted.

I had a fleur de sel wedding cake from them and it was the best wedding cake I've ever had! The cake was expensive but it was definitely worth it. They also delivered and set it up promptly and beautifully. My only complaint is they didn't leave a container to package up extra cake in, so if you use them I recommend you ask them to bring a box as well or bring one yourself.

I'll admit the wedding cake was low on our list of priorities for our wedding (band was higher, sorry!), so we were thrilled to score the 3 tiered cake for $199 deal that Sugarland occasionally offers (I think through bridal shows?). The cake tasted good, but I only had the traditional bite after cutting (too busy dancing). It was a really plain cake, so I'm not surprised none of the guests commented about it. We only had a small amount left, so it definitely got eaten! If you can get the deal, this bakery is definitely worth it!

Our cake looked amazing and it tasted wonderful as well! The Sugarland staff were very helpful in getting exactly what we wanted and worked with our florist to coordinate flowers on the cake as well.

Katrina and the rest of the Sugarland team did an amazing job with my wedding cake. All of my guests told me that it was the most delicious wedding cake that they had ever tasted! We also met repeatedly with Katrina, who was always very accommodating and fun to work with. And the toppers of my husband and I in our lab coats (we're both graduate students in the sciences), which they made for our cake, were especially cute and really well done. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a delicious and beautiful wedding cake!

I went to 5 or 6 other well known bakeries before trying Sugarland. Their cake was delicious...all of the flavors so good, it was difficult to choose. The artwork & attention to details was amazing. Katrina & her staff designed our Wedding Cake to look just like the Durham Bulls Athletic Park & hand made figures to that looked like each member of our family...My husband, myself, 5 children & 3 dogs...Everyone absolutely loved the cake :) & cupcakes we gave as favors.

Initially things were a bit rocky, as they had some staff changes and my order seemed to confuse the new catering manager. After several frustrating emails, however, they seemed to get their act together.
The cake was DELICIOUS, and it was absolutely beautiful. My biggest complaint, now that it's all over, is that they should have been more explicit in explaining that the florist would need to bring them the flowers for them to put on the cake. Since they didn't explain this ahead of time, it caused for quite a bit of frustration and needless "running around" the morning of my wedding.

Outstanding product. I ordered a birthday cake with only one day lead time and it was ready and waiting the next day. The flavors were perfect!

Wonderful overall!

The pumpkin chocolate chip for the rehearsal dinner is my favorite, although the tuxedo cake was considered by many wedding guests to be the best they have ever tasted.

Be creative! Have fun! Whatever cake you dream of and design can be done by Sugarland.

Sugarland is amazing. We got a pumpkin chocolate chip cake with cream cheese frosting (fall wedding) and all the guests were blown away with how delicious and moist it was. I had no idea what I wanted my cake to look like (and didn't care that much, either) so I just told them "Fall, rustic, and simple, and I can't pay more than X amount". They made the most beautiful cake, in the budget, and it had fondant fall leaves and branches on it; I didn't think they'd be able to use any fondant with how small my budget was, but they managed to! I had absolutely no worries working with Sugarland, they are competent and knowledgeable and make you feel completely at ease with their abilities to make the perfect cake for you. Advice I got from someone: order 80% of the cake you think you'll need. They always make it way bigger than it needs to be. We ordered cake for 80 but had 100 guests, and we still had a lot left over. Saved us some money

The cake was fantastic. Everyone was raving about it! It looked beautiful and matched our colors and theme wonderfully. At one point, I had a question about their pricing tiers. From the invoice we received, it seemed like if we had bought a larger cake, delivery would have been free. We thought it would make more sense to pay for more cake than for more gas money so we asked about it. The response was short and kinda mean. Although the cake was delicious, that little conversation left a bad taste in my mouth.

We got an incredible deal from Sugarland by ordering the cake at a wedding show. They gave us a 100 person 3 tier cake for $140. You can't beat that. AND the cake was delicious. You have to get a basic design and white frosting, but they give you several designs to choose from. With flowers added by the florist, the cake was beautiful and delicious. Our contact person changed several times before the wedding, but someone always got back to us and there were no problems on the big day!

If you haven't been to Sugarland before and live in the Chapel Hill area, you must go there at once! They have the best cupcakes I have ever tasted. It was so hard to choose the ones we wanted to serve at our wedding. We settled on the "monkey kiss" and "red velvet" cupcakes and they were a huge hit with some people eating 2 to 3 of them (so order more than you think you will need). The price is very reasonable and probably one of the best values of the wedding!

Our Sugarland Cake for our Washington Duke Inn wedding in March was fantastic! We had Vegan and Gluten-Free family members at the wedding, so we were able to use our additional cakes as part of our Sugarland cake package to accommodate those guests. This made the process much less stressful, as we did not have to worry about alternative desserts for those guests or leaving them feeling out of place. And we were able to use two incredible flavors in the main cake--a heavenly chocolate/liquor mix for me, and a Wimbledon flavor for vanilla lovers. Even my husband James, who is not a big fan of desserts in general, loved the bite he got when we cut our first slice! I've gotten so many compliments on how delicious the cake was--the "best wedding cake" my guests have ever tasted!

I am so pleased with my cake. It was so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. Katrina is a great baker and was so accomodating to my wants and making me very happy. I did have a bad experience during the planning/ordering process, but it hopefully is not something that occurs on the regular so I don't think details are needed. I would still recommend Sugarland, the prices are a little higher at first glance but if you do research, they include all the add ons that other bakers charge (delivery, details, extra slices, etc.)

The cake was delicious and they were very responsive about letting me determine certain details. We wanted a combination of chocolate and vanilla and wanted buttercream where they usually use fondant and Sugarland made it all work great. We had to work with a lot of different people (seems there is a lot of turnover at bakeries) which was a little frustrating, but we were very satisfied with the final product.

We are very pleased with Sugarland! The staff was very welcoming and extremely easy to work with! Our wedding guests LOVED our cake! They have many options such as gluten free and vegan available! I wanted by dress to match my cake and they copied a picture we gave them to try to match it up! Great place to work with and to eat cake at! The cake tasting session was very fun too! We even got to try extra that weren't on our plate because I had asked for some more flavors! They were very willing to make that happen. Thanks Sugarland!

I work in the hotel industry where a lot of weddings take place and wanted the best of the best vendors for my wedding. Sugarland was recommended by several people and unfortunately they were the only vendor that I was extremely disappointed with. They went through a different Catering Manager while I was ordering my cake. There was NO communication from one to the next so they had pretty much no idea what I wanted except for the flavors (by the way you are only able to choose a couple flavors to taste and they are from the cupcakes that are in the display and have been sitting there all day). During my initial appointment, I discussed in detail about the grooms cake that I wanted to surprise my Fiancé with during our rehearsal dinner. I was told one cost by the first manager and a totally different cost by the next. I just gave in on the Grooms Cake because I fell in love with a picture I found online and specifically said because of how expensive it was I really wanted it to be a centerpiece. NOT a centerpiece at all!!! Anyone who knew the cost of the cake were shocked on how small it was. It was half the size that the Catering Manager showed me it would be. The Executive Chef-Owner, Katrina, only got involved when there was an issue with cost and design issues and was extremely non-customer friendly and rude. She made you feel as if you were the always the wrong one. In the end, thankfully the wedding cake was nice. Also, I was surprised that you were required to return the cake stand to the store. I would have assumed that Sugarland would have picked the stand up and was included in the service they provided. Last thing a bride wants to worry about after her wedding. I absolutely will not be doing business with Sugarland again and will not recommend them for weddings or special events.

Sugarland responded with the following comments:

We're very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your groom's cake. A cake for 30 people just is the size that serves 30. It's not bigger just because you want a bigger centerpiece.

We gave you several options for having a bigger and/or less expensive cake. We even cut the cost of our custom figures dramatically. We've never actually had someone in the industry threaten us with bad word of mouth for not giving them a discount before.

Overall very pleased. They were friendly and easy to work with and were able to make a completely vegan cake for us. Several guests told us how tasty they thought it was and could not believe it was vegan.

I provided a picture and asked to duplicate exactly, when delivered there were a few minor changed (shiny vs matte in areas, texture slightly different) but overall the cake was beautiful, and I was the only one to notice anything "wrong" since I had a picture in mind.

My experience with Sugarland was great. The staff was very organized and engaging during the planning and design process. The cupcake set up at the wedding was perfect. There was a minor miscommunication about the location of the cake-topper but it was all fixed before I couldn't even realize what happened. I received rave reviews from several folks at the wedding as to how delicious the cupcakes were too. I would definitely recommend Sugarland to future brides!
