About

The Sugar Lab specializes in custom cakes and mini desserts that look and taste great.

Owners and mother-daughter duo Kelly Shirk and Alison Davis created the Sugar Lab in April 2012 by blending two passions: sweets and science.

Kelly has had a passion for cooking and baking her whole life. She owned a small caf茅 when she was 20 years old and opened a chocolate shop after family and friends repeatedly commented that she should sell her creations.

Alison has been baking with Kelly since she was 3, helping to mix the batter and licking the spoon when they were done. While obtaining her biology degree from Cal Poly, Alison鈥檚 passion for cake decorating flourished. It seemed like every week she was baking. As a member of Chi Omega, Alison made several cakes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation鈥檚 wish granting parties. After graduation, she continued to bake for family and friends with great success.

The pair decided to open up a bakery and confections shop to showcase their many talents and creations.

Beautiful and Delicious, I highly recommend!!

I was thoroughly impressed with the level of customization Sugar Lab Bake Shop and Micki offered. They took my ideas and preferences into account, and the end result exceeded my expectations. Communication throughout the process was seamless, with prompt responses to any queries or concerns I had.

Moreover, the taste of the cake was simply divine. Everyone loved our cake, and we wish they got to taste all the different flavors! And of course, the presentation was just absolutely beautiful!

In terms of service, Micki was professional, reliable, and accommodating. She ensured that the cake was delivered on time and in pristine condition, making the entire experience hassle-free. I highly recommend Sugar Lab Bake shop for your wedding cake and desserts for any special event!

Stunning & Delicious Cake for our Wedding Day!

Sugar Lab was so easy to work with from start to finish. Our wedding cake was just as delicious as it was beautiful. They were extremely responsive any time we had a question. And I love that you get a fresh cake for your anniversary! We tried a few local cake shops and Sugar Lab cakes were definitely the tastiest.
