About Sugarland

...because life is sweet
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.

Our cake was delicious, spectacular, and delivered on time. Sugar land was able to work with our dietary restrictions and made the top tier gluten/soy free. Guests could barely tell the difference in flavor, as both were good. The tasting and design planning meetings were very useful and Josh was great at forming our ideas into something tangible. On a side note, gluten free cakes aren't available on the official tasting, however, we were able to try out the gluten free cupcakes in store (flavors change daily) up until our final planning meeting.

We worked with Joshua to design our cake for our tented wedding. He was responsive and very easy to work with. We chose the mimosa flavor and a simple buttercream design with flowers from our florist. Our cake was so delicious, and all of our guests could not stop raving about it!! We were very happy with everything!

1st STRIKE: Nov ‘15, I made 3 phone calls that went straight to voice mail. I left a message each time. It’s the middle of ‘16 & I still haven’t received any call back. I get it - you were on the Food Network once. I’ve been on national TV too. No one cares. You’re not that busy. Pick up the phone.
2nd STRIKE: In April ‘16, someone picked up when I called. I was not paired up with any baker, instead a nice young girl who was not a baker. The girl, while sweet, was not able to tell me any of Sugarland’s policies. I had to inquire about EVERYTHING: cake stands (free/fee/threshold price), traveling costs to/from, pricing of different flavors, threshold pricing for free anniversary cake, the list goes on & on & on. She was a nice young girl but employee training is lacking. I’m not going to drop $600+ if I don’t know all the hidden fees that you keep not telling me (purposefully or unintentionally?).
LAST STRIKE: I wanted a “naked cake” for my wedding. It’s as simple as a cake design can get. So, while seeing all the marvelous creations they had displayed in their store, I naturally told the young employee my choice. The young girl said, & I’m quoting exactly, “THE BAKERS AT SUGARLAND DON’T BELIEVE IN NAKED CAKES, SO UNFORTUNATELY WE CAN’T MAKE ONE FOR YOUR WEDDING.” This bakery literally has a “LOVE” rainbow cake in their window. This world is so messed up. Just make cakes - that’s your chosen job. It’s not like I asked you to make something patently offensive cake - I asked for a naked cake which is all the rage on Pinterest et al.
I never did meet with any baker. I got an email from someone I’d never met at Sugarland saying they enjoyed my and my fiancé’s visit & hoped to get my business. Punchline: my fiance wasn’t there. My sister came with me. So thanks for making it clear that I’m not a valued customer. My business gladly went to SWEET MEMORIES - their cakes are bar none the best tasting cakes on the planet and the customer service is equally as fantastic.

Best cake around, hands down! Katrina's cupcakes are my favorite thing on Franklin St. and I know when one of my couples hires Sugarland, their cake is going to be the centerpiece of their reception both visually and edibly. But Sugarland isn't just a cake bakery. Their gelato and gelato martinis are the perfect out-of-the-box treat for your reception or after party (or both!) The blood-orange is my favorite, but no true Carolina fan can pass up the Tartini!
