Touting its made-from-scratch, home-style baked goods, California bakery SusieCakes announced its first location outside of the Golden State: 6100 Luther Lane, at the corner of Luther Lane and Westchester Drive in Preston Center. Along with baked goods, SusieCakes will sell breakfast goods and Cultivar Coffee, according to a press release.
Founded by Susan Sarich 10 years ago, SusieCakes was created with a mission to make "sentimental dessert favorites" with no artificial preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or trans fat. The menu touts ingredients like Tahitian vanilla bean and European-style butter. Cakes are an obvious specialty, and SusieCakes employs a "celebration specialist" to work with customers by appointment on custom creations.
Specialties include frosted layer cakes in familiar flavors such as Southern Red Velvet, Six Layer Chocolate and Tropical Coconut. Rotating seasonal offerings feature crumble topped fruit pies baked in flaky crusts and holiday-inspired treats. A selection of traditional cookies and bars includes soft and chewy snickerdoodles, fudgy brownies, seven layer bars and Susie’s famous whoopie pies. The brand is best known for its classic Vanilla Celebration Cake, custom decorated cakes and its cupcakes, which are filled with delicious frosting, resulting in a moist, yummy cupcake bursting with flavor.
The bakery opens 9 a.m. Saturday, April 16. No word on whether Dallasites will camp out overnight for this opening, as they did for the recent opening nearby of Carlo’s Bakery, though the absence of any cake celebrities means this bakery launch may be a little more ... sane.
