Dawn was a pleasure to work with. I sent her photos of what I'd envisioned for our wedding cake and she worked her magic. Our cake was not only beautiful, but tasty too. Will be recommending to others.

We did a destination wedding, but we were able to make it into town for one weekend to try and look at venues and do some cake tasting. Dawn was a no-brainer when it came to choosing our bakery! We had her do a two layer cake along with 4 dozen mini desserts. Everything was... Read More stunning, and even better, it tasted amazing! I'm still dreaming about that passionfruit curd, and I have had so many guests tell me how good the cake was. She also arranged the flowers to cascade down the cake, which looked beautiful. The best part is she was very reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to recommend Dawn and Shake Sugary.

Awww, thank you so much, I'm so glad you and your guests enjoyed the cake and desserts! You were a pleasure to work with and of course let me know if you're coming to town and need some desserts!

We were so impressed with Dawn from the get-go. We loved the cake we sampled at the tasting, and got 100 cupcakes and a small grooms cake. I am vegan, so the cupcakes were vegan, with a few gluten free as well for a few of our celiac guests. I have never had vegan gluten... Read More free cake that I actually liked. But Dawn has figured out how to not make them too sweet and dry. Cost was less than expected. She created a beautiful cupcake tower, let us use our own cupcake stand, and the icing design was inspired by the art deco venue and the cake topper we showed her. It was just beautiful. We had fewer guests than cupcakes and I was soooo glad I had leftovers! Thank you for being an excellent vegan/gluten free friendly vendor!

Dawn was great to work with. We have several people in the wedding with Celiac's Disease including myself, so it was very important that we had G-Free Options. I also decided to go with pies rather than a traditional wedding cake. Dawn was very helpful and answered all my... Read More questions (there were many). I also liked that payments were processed online. Regarding the pies themselves, I got so many compliments after the wedding. We had several flavors, but my favorite was the Apple Streusel. I would recommend Shake Sugary as the pies were amazing and Dawn was so great to work with. I would also note that the pies were beautiful and came out very well on the table and in our photos.

Dawn and the team at Shake Sugary made the most amazing diary free wedding cake. Not only did it look good, but it tasted amazing. I️ am lactose intolerant and I️ was worried about not being able to have a cake at my wedding. A friend recommended that we check out Shake Sugary.... Read More I️ am so glad we did. Dawn was helpful during our tastings. We had 3 tiers that where all different flavors. I️ had guests who not only lined up to get a piece of cake but some of them had a piece of each layer. No one realized it was dairy free and they all loved it. I️ HIGHLY recommend Shake Sugary.

Dawn and the Shake Sugary staff made us the most beautiful and delicious cake for our wedding. We went with a very simple 3 tier cake; almond cake with vanilla bean custard, berries and a vanilla buttercream. So good! I cant wait to get into the top layer for our one year.... Read More :)

Loved our experience with Shake Sugary!!! I am vegan and found them on The Knot initially. We went for a cake tasting, so fun! And it was hard to choose, very many delicious vegan options!

Dawn was wonderful to work with. We had a great time starting at the cake tasting. I am allergic to eggs and needed a vegan cake.

Dawn and her team at Shake Sugary are amazing. They did our wedding cake and several desserts for our big day and my wife and I couldn't have been happier. Everything was delicious and we're so glad to find a baker who is happy to accommodate vegans with a sweet tooth!
