A Baking & Pastry Arts graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Sarah began her career in cake design in 2004 in Charlotte, NC. She worked her way through college collaborating on hundreds of cake for a local wedding cakery. Her love for the kitchen continued after graduation when she made her way back home to Roanoke, Virginia. In 2014 Sarah officially founded Fresh Baked and she is excited to bring a fresh perspective to weddings in the Roanoke Valley. She chose the name “Fresh Baked” to represent her commitment to small batch, never frozen cakes, made with local ingredients. She uses an old-fashioned family cake recipe combined with a Swiss Meringue buttercream to create cakes that are not only beautiful but also delicious.
Although she enjoys creating all types of celebration cakes, wedding cakes are her true passion. She loves meeting brides and hearing about all of their wedding plans, not just their cake dreams. Sarah enjoys every aspect of the wedding cake process, from the initial one-on-one meeting to delivering the final product. She strives to create perfectly smooth buttercream and flawless fondant covered cakes for every wedding and special event. Sarah’s work has been featured wedding publications including Virginia Bride Magazine, Florida Keys Magazine, Ruffled Magazine, Trendy Blog and The Laker Magazine.
"My mission is to seamlessly contribute to your most important celebrations and to fill your life with delicious cake memories." -Sarah

Sarah made our wedding cake, and it was so easy to work with her! I showed her a picture of what we wanted and she copied it for us perfectly. She even added things on we realized we wanted later on in the process. Everyone at the wedding loved the way the cake looked and tasted.Sent on 01/20/2020

Beautiful wedding cake + cupcakes
We adored Sarah’s work on our wedding cake, and coordinating cupcakes (which were the perfect portion for our guests). The flavor combinations we chose for our cakes/cupcakes were unique to my husband and I’s individual tastes! Sarah delivered the cake on-site, set up, and also provided a lovely complimentary flower design. We can’t wait to order from Sarah again in the future. I 100% recommend Fresh Baked for all of your custom cake needs :)Sent on 10/14/2019
