Ashley is truly an artist with her cakes! Not only do her cakes look amazing, they taste amazing too.

I met with Ashley for a cake tasting last year and knew immediately she was the one to make my wedding cake! Her cake and filling flavors were so creative, fresh and delicious. I even brought some cake (lemon champagne and almond cake)on a flight back home to my then fiancé and... Read More he loved it. Ashley is super sweet and a delight to work with. She took the time to understand the vision I had for my cake and she nailed it! We got married 11/3/17 and the cake was absolutely gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. Thank you Sugar Lane Cake Shop!!

Ashley is very sweet and the cake tasting she put together was wonderful. She even delivered the cake herself on our wedding day. The cake Ashley made for our wedding was incredible!

Attention everyone who doesn't like fondant! Ashley at Sugar Lane Cake Shop is the baker for you. For our wedding in June, Ashley baked a creation that was equal parts beautiful and delicious. The flowers that she handmade completely out of sugar, were so lifelike that my... Read More husband and I felt guilty eating the cake! She is super talented and we were so lucky to find her for our wedding. I would recommend Sugar Lane to anyone searching for an artisanal baker. Ashley is reliable, friendly, artistic and her cakes are divine. I've never had a slice of wedding cake that tasted so good!!!

Ashley is phenomenal!! She so incredibly talented and easy to work with. We were blown away with our tasting for our upcoming wedding and booked her on the spot. Creative flavor combos, organic and truly fresh ingredients, beautiful designs. The tasting was unique because she... Read More had us mix and match many different buttercreams, fillings and cakes until we found our favorites. With this approach, we felt like we really played a role in customizing our cake for the big day. My bridal shower was last weekend and she created a gorgeous pink ombré two tiered cake with fresh raspberry and chocolate filling, plus a few vegan, gluten free cupcakes to accommodate guests with food allergies. She even provided an elegant cake stand, plus a cute cake topper. Everything was delicious and my friends and family cannot stop raving about it. This makes us even more excited for our wedding cake!! Finding Ashley was one of the highlights of our wedding planning process and I will absolutely work with her every time we need a cake for a big event! I would also say that it sometimes takes her a little time to respond to emails because she spends her days baking and prepping for weddings. So for nervous brides to be who prefer same-day responses, do not worry, you are in great hands!

Ashley seriously pulled through when it came to our wedding cake! I wasn't completely set on the idea of a cake - more of a savory person - but my husband really wanted one...that was until we met Ashley and tasted her cakes. "Unbelievable" is truly the only way to describe her... Read More flavors and her work. She is a pleasure to work with, designed a picture perfect cake that actually tasted AMAZING! She even designed a beautiful second small cake to match our wedding cake that we used to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries on our wedding day. I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone in the market for a gorgeous and delicious wedding cake!

Sugar Lane Cake Shop was our first and only cake tasting for our wedding! I dreaded the idea of a fondant cake - I greatly dislike it. When I came across Ashley’s beautiful cakes with NO fondant and AMAZING sugar flowers I immediately sent an email to set up a tasting. My... Read More husband didn’t even want to go because he doesn’t eat cake(until we met Ashley) - more of a muffin and cookie guy. He told me to pick whatever I wanted and he’d be ok with it. Let me tell you, we went together and he ate almost everything! He said we are booking with her now and we did. He picked almost all the flavors too :) We loved how she had different flavors and it wasn’t the typical chocolate and vanilla bakery cake. Everything was delicious and Ashley is such a sweet person to work with. Our wedding cake was everything we dreamed of! It was delicious and beautiful. Everyone commented on it! Ashley is a true artist, the sugar flowers she creates are just incredible. We have already asked her to make our daughters 2nd birthday cake!

Ashley was incredible to work with! She took the time and listened to all of our suggestions, asked for photos of exactly what we wanted, and let us sample as much cake as we needed ( not a bad way to spend a Saturday). The cake she created was STUNNING. Literally the cake of... Read More our dreams, and she even took the time to source the perfect vintage cake stand - above and beyond service. Oh, and it also tasted AMAZING! So many guests complimented the cake and how delicious it was. From start to finish the experience was flawless. If you like beautiful, tasty cakes (and are a bit of cake snob who hates the idea of a fondant cake, like myself) Ashley will literally make the cake of your dreams - buttercream frosting with champagne vanilla cake and raspberry filling was unreal as well as the lemon cake with pistachio frosting!!

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to our wedding cake. This was one of the things we were most looking forward to since we did our tasting a year and a half prior to our wedding. Ashley is the sweetest person to work with. She is kind, compassionate, loves what she... Read More does, and really listens to her couples to convey what they want in their cakes. She is more than an artist, she is a MASTER at sugar flowers. The flowers she made for my cake were so life-like, and also very delicious. We had a 3-tiered cake and she had no qualms about us doing different flavors on each tier... Chocolate mint cake with oreo buttercream, almond cake with chocolate and raspberry sauce, and champagne cake with chocolate and salted caramel buttercream. My guests RAVED about the look of the cake and the taste of it. It's been 3 weeks and I still have friends telling me how they loved my cake. From start to finish I have loved working with Ashley. She is an amazing baker, artist, visionary, and friend. Let her make you an amazing cake, you seriously won't regret it.

We turned to Sugar Lane Cake Shop when we had an issue with our venue's cake baker, which left us without a cake about 3 weeks away from our wedding. Ashley was so easy to work with, she made our last-minute order a breeze, and handled our mixed vegan/traditional cake order like... Read More the pro she is. She created such a beautiful vegan cake for us - vegan almond with raspberry filling and an espresso buttercream, and a traditional lemon sheet cake with raspberry filling and a lemon buttercream. All of our guests could not praise the cake enough, and we will be lucky if the top lasts to our first anniversary- my husband can barely wait! I'd give her 10 stars if I could!

Ashley was great to work with for our wedding 11/5/16.

Ashley and Sugar Lane Cake Shop was simply amazing. Our relationship with Ashley started in the middle of the winter maybe 9 or 10 months before the wedding. We did a tasting and expected to do many more tastings after. However, her cakes and frostings were sooooo good. The... Read More next tasting we did sealed the deal and we knew that we must use Sugar Lane. Ashley was exceptionally accommodating , my "wife" (so weird writing that) and I have completely different tastes, Ashley allowed us to choose two flavors each and 2 of the 4 tiers would be my wife's flavors and 2 would be mine. Other Cake shops were not willing to do that. Have I mentioned the cake tasted amazing and looked amazing as well. We went with a 4 tier, ruffled buttercream cake, with 2 tiers filled with pistachio and raspberry, 2 tiers with cookies and cream and chocolate ganache(clearly my tiers). Everyone at the wedding was complimenting us, not only on the design and appearance of the cake but also the taste. Simply and elegantly amazing, I will recommend Ashley and Sugar Lane to anyone who asks and probably those who don't ask as well.

I was always an artist at heart, but after years of sitting behind a canvas, something was missing. So with a passion for baking I decided to explore art within food. There was just something about creating edible art that brought me an endless amount of excitement. Having something that I created, that delicious cake, those intricate sugar flowers, help bring someones fairytale to life has brought me more joy than I could ever imagine.
