Our wedding and other special occasion cakes are made fresh, never frozen. Our world class pastry chefs and sugar artists make cakes that are as delicious as they are beautiful. We never use hydrogenated oils or high frustose corn syrup, and choose local and organic ingredients whenever possible. Your guests will tell you its the best cake they've ever had. With incredible flavors like Banana Nutella, Wimbledon, and Casey's Cake, rich with passion fruit and fresh raspberries, you've never had cake like this before.
All that quality gets noticed!! Sugarland has been recognized by Southern Living, Our State Magazine, and Good Morning America. We've been featured on T.V's Food Network, and Carolina's Today Show, and even Mtv's Made. The News and Observer rated our cupcakes the best in the Triangle, and we have been named "The Best" by The Independent Weekly and Metro Bravo for years. Read less

Sugarland makes delicious cakes. The fondant is fantastic, the fun flavors are to die for, the designs are beautiful, and the cakes are more moist and delicious than the cupcakes you might sample at their stores (the cupcakes usually sit on the refrigerated shelf during the day which dries them out a bit).
However, this booking caused unnecessary stress. We attended a separate cupcake tasting as we could not make their tasting day. Between our tasting/quote/contract and the wedding, our paperwork was lost (though not our booking information). We also had to contact Sugarland ourselves to finalize things though they were supposed to call us. We went back and forth with different people in the organization because we were given a new, more expensive quote after sending the same information we had left with them the year before, however after much correspondence the price was readjusted to the initial quote. We were told that the cupcake tasting employee had filled out the forms incorrectly, which should not be the customer's fault, especially as our file initially had all of the information (we sent nothing new and had been told at the time of initial quote that everything was okay with the baker). We also were given a deadline to deliver our cake topper (fine) but were told that if it needed "additional support" that it would cost hundreds of dollars more (not fine; Sugarland had the dimensions, weight, etc. of the cake topper--we had brought it to our tasting so the information could be included in the design process). We found some of the people we interacted with friendly, others not (e.g. not even a "hello" or a "nice to meet you" from the person who took our cake topper that we had corresponded with). In the end our cake was beautiful and tasted amazing though not exactly as we had pictured. Everyone was satisfied with the end result but planning was very stressful; fortunately everything resolved. We recommend, if you can stay on top of everything.

Our wedding cake from Sugarland was absolutely beautiful and so yummy! Our guests ate the whole thing!! We even had cupcakes in different flavors as an extra sweet treat for our guests, and the majority of those were gone as well. Melissa did a great job in helping us design the cake (the green sugar hydrangeas were amazing!!) and it was even better than I hoped.
I also used Sugarland to make a surprise groom's cake for the wedding rehearsal - and it was perfect. I had some vague ideas about carrot cake and a tennis racquet, and they did a great job in making it - my groom was very surprised and touched :) I would highly recommend Sugarland to any couple looking for not only a wonderful looking, but a wonderful tasting wedding cake.

Wow! What an excellent idea it was for us to have selected Sugarland to make our groom's cake, wedding cake and also our gelato bar! I worked closely with Melissa who brought my ideas to life! I had sketched out the groom's cake with pretty specific details and they nailed each one perfectly! For the wedding cake I wanted something that closely resembled my dress but also have an elegance and regal appearance. I sent a few sketches and images of my dress and again the cake was absolutely and amazing centerpiece and a huge hit!

All of our guests were ranting and raving how beautiful the cakes were but that they also tasted delicious and that is coming from guests from New York where pastry chefs and bakers are at almost every corner.

The gelato bar was a huge hit among all of our guests and I heard from everyone it tasted delicious!

People on social media have seen images of our wedding cake through some of our vendors who had posted images and they have commented it is the most elegant wedding cake they had ever seen. I think that says something about Sugarland and how great of a job they did for us! We highly recommend them! :)

We got our wedding cake and a gelato bar from Sugarland, and it was absolutely delicious! We used one of their original flavors, but also customized one of our own that was phenomenal! The gelato bar was a huge hit for all of our attendees!

We did run into one slight customer service situation (but it was only with one of the catering managers, so I hate having to hold her actions against the whole company.) We had originally picked out out design from an iPad that they had at the Carolina Inn showcase-it was everything that I had dreamed of! Unfortunately, it was never written down even though we signed the contract on the spot and said that it was exactly what we wanted (hindsight, we should have taken our own picture or sent a copy to ourselves). When I asked to meet with the young woman to discuss the cake, she took a while to get back and seemed to never have the time for me. After awhile, this got extremely old. She seemed to be very annoyed with us, and even had attitude with my mother, both in person and via telephone! It's extremely disheartening to be treated like you are a burden when you are paying for a service, especially when it's for a day as exciting as your wedding day.

As I mentioned before, the remainder of the staff should not have this held against them: whenever we expressed our frustrations, they listened, worked hard with us to make sure everything was perfect, and completely restored my faith in the company. They treated us with respect, and made sure that my beautiful 5-tier was everything I could have dreamed!

Brian and I were no strangers to Sugarland (Raleigh or Chapel Hill locations). They are a go to for dessert anytime we are near one of their locations. We had already samples cupcakes, gelato, cheesecake and just about any other type of sweets they offer. So we did not have to think twice about asking Sugarland to assist us with cupcakes and gelato for our wedding. We had 5 flavors of cupcakes and 4 flavors of gelato, complete with mini cones. And it was a major hit with all of our guests. Our guests ranged in age from 3 to 88 and everyone found a flavor they loved. We also asked for a cake topper for our cake cutting pictures which was just as beautiful and tasty as the cupcakes. Fortunately for us we had a few cupcakes left and a family member graciously took them home and froze them for us. Since we got back from our honeymoon we thawed two out every few days and were able to enjoy the evenings dessert again. They were just as tasty then as they were the night of. I would recommend Sugarland to anyone for any type of event and plan to use them again for any occasion that comes up.

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.
