Very talented baker.

I had actually tried about 5 other bakers before I came across this one. She was the only one who actually sat down with me and was interested in my vision. Not to mention her design exceeded my expectations. The cake also taste amazing as well.

The best wedding cake

I am so thankful Sugar Refined did my wedding cake! It was perfect. Maria was so easy to get in touch, and she made the entire process a breeze. The cake exceeded my expectations. It was absolutely beautiful, and it was honestly the most delicious cake I've ever had. Thank you again, Maria!

Delicious cake and cupcakes that didn't break the bank!

I chose Sugar Refined after looking just outside of Gainesville and pleasantly surprised by the pricing and variety of flavors. We were glad that Maria offered tastings prior to booking. As a gal that loves old fashions, I knew that we needed to have the Salted Caramel Bourbon flavor to go with the 4rivers BBQ at our reception. The sweetness of the caramel was balanced with the bite of the bourbon and the cream cheese frosting and my husband who does not normally like bourbon loved it too.

My husband and I did our cake and catering tastings on the same day and when we told the catering manager at 4Rivers Gainesville we were considering Sugar Refined she said "She is the best in the area!". We knew we had to book and were not disappointed.

Maria messaged us after our booking and told us that she was excited to work with us and loved our natural and understated style of our cake and cupcakes which I thought was nice! The chose a 2 tier semi-naked buttercream cake and a selection of cupcakes including the white wedding gluten free offering and our guests devoured them. We had mostly edible garnishes and our cake was inspired by her winter cakes and they came out so pretty! We received so many compliments on the desserts and we are excited for Maria to make a fresh top tier of our cake (in the Salted Caramel Bourbon flavor) for our anniversary ❄️💙
