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!

5 stars just does not seem adequate enough for how amazing Ashley's cake was! She made a vegan cake that people are still raving about. Even the waitstaff commented that everyone loved the cake. Besides it being so so delicious, it was beautiful! I showed her a picture of a...

She was very accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. I cannot recommend working with sugar lane for your wedding, you will certainly not regret it!

We hired Ashley at Sugar Lane Cake Shop to make our cake for our wedding June 3, 2017. I found her on the knot after an extensive search for a bakery who had the same design vision as I did.

Ashley was so wonderful to work with. Not only did our cakes come out amazing, they tasted phenomenal. We chose the lemon champagne cake with raspberry filling and honey buttercream - out of this world!!! For our groom's cake, we chose almond cake with strawberry filling and...

Ashley is so talented - everything on our cakes came our so perfect. I cannot say enough about her and her work. It was the best cake we ever had. And the tasting she hosted for us was great - she allowed me and a few guests to come and try every. single. flavor. That is NOT traditionally offered at bakeries. Usually they give you a few of the "popular" flavors, but Ashley gave us every option and we took advantage. Sugar Lane Cake Shop is absolutely fantastic!!

Ashley was an absolute pleasure to work with. I am from LI but live in NYC and would travel to her no matter where she was just to have her cake at my event. She was so great and we totally trusted her judgement when designing our cake. From flavors to aesthetics, she knew... Read More exactly what we were looking for. Our cake tasting was so much fun - so many new, innovative, exciting flavors to pick from. Everything tasted fresh and clean, nothing tasted overly sweet or fake sugar-y. You could really taste the quality of her ingredients which was huge for us since we love great cakes an know that not every bakery uses the best, quality, fresh ingredients. The cake, filling, and icing options were so fun and creative - she pairs together the most perfect combinations, the cake is so outstanding. Everyone loved our cake and still talks about it. Ashley is fantastic. Great flavors, great creativity, great decorations that are so tastefully done, but most of all, great service!!! I can't wait to use her again for future events! Thank you, Ashley!!!

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.

BEST CAKE EVER! And I am not just saying this because it was our wedding cake! My husband and I eat cake at every wedding so we know a lot about how much wedding cakes can suck, especially in Long Island. Since we were having a vineyard wedding out in Long Island we wanted to... Read More find someone nearby. I searched all over The Knot, local bakeries, friends recommendations, etc... and was consistently disappointed by the service, taste, photos of cakes, and lack of style. It wasn't until we stumbled upon Sugar Lane Cake Shop on The Knot and saw their website and Instagram that we fell in LOVE! The photos and style of cakes are beautiful and honestly my husband and I thought it was too good to be true to find something like this in Long Island especially with such quality ingredients. We decided a tasting wouldn't hurt, so we went for it and we ended up spending our entire session tasting and arguing about what flavors to pick for our cake. Ashley was very helpful narrowing down the flavors for us. Her creativity is astonishing! Our cake was so beautiful! Our guests and even our photographer who got really close to the cake thought the flowers were real. Another important thing was BUDGET. And Ashley was super helpful in meeting our budget, but not compromising taste or style. I really can't believe it. Sugar Lane Cake Shop was by far the best vendor in all of our wedding planning. As someone with very high expectations, Ashley exceeded them! My husband and I can't wait to recommend Sugar Lane Cake Shop to our friends so we can eat delicious cake at their wedding. Thank you so much Ashley! The cake was the most memorable part of the wedding!

Coming from a family who'd prefer dessert over a main course, I knew that my wedding cake had to both look great and taste even better. After a disappointing tasting with our venue's preferred bakery, I sought other options and stumbled upon Sugar Lane's website and Instagram.... Read More Every photo was more beautiful than the next, and I felt like Ashley 100% matched the style and vibe I was looking for. After reaching out to her via e-mail, she couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating - she gave us options for working within our budget, and always answered my (many!) questions promptly. It truly felt like I was working with an old friend - not a vendor I had just met! When we went to the tasting, every flavor and filling was so good that we had an insanely difficult time choosing. The end result was beautiful and so delicious that we didn't even wait to eat our top tier - it was gone within a month! I can't wait to work with Ashley again and am so excited to have found a cake designer that is not only incredibly talented, but such a wonderful person as well. Thanks for everything, Ashley!

If I could give Sugar Lane Cake shop more than 5 stars I would! Working with Ashley was a delightful experience. We had ordered 2 cakes. One small one for our vow renewal out in Montauk, and a large one for our anniversary party at Verde in Bayshore. I have never had such... Read More amazing cake in my life. The Montauk cake was almond with a honey and peach filling, and the Bayshore cake was chocolate with cookies and cream filling, and a tier of almond cake with pistachio and raspberry filling. The pistachio and raspberry was an usual combination that we tried at Ashley's recommendation, and it did not disappoint. Overall, I am so incredibly happy at the way they turned out, and I am looking for any excuse to get another cake from Sugar Lane Cake Shop in the future! :)

Where do we begin? Our first experience with Sugar Lane and Ashley was when my wife (then girlfriend) needed a cake for her mom's surprise party. She ordered a small cake, with toppers that were made to look like each of their two poodles. When we picked up the cake, we were... Read More AMAZED. The toppers were awesome, and the cake itself was a work of art. That was all BEFORE we even tasted the cake. The cake tasted even better than it looked (which we didn't think would be possible). From that point on, we were hooked. We've worked with Sugar Lane on basically every major moment in our lives since. They made a cake for the day we got engaged, for our engagement party, for my wife's bridal shower, and of course - our wedding cake. The whole process was stress free. We had our tasting (which was SO much fun), and talked to Ashley about all of the specifics of our wedding. She made things so simple for us. I've had the pleasure of photographing some of their cakes, so we knew what to expect. But we were absolutely blown away when we showed up on our wedding day and saw our cake. It absolutely exceeded our expectations, and we got countless compliments on how beautiful it was. The attention to detail, care, and creativity that goes into these cakes is stunning. And have I mentioned how AMAZING they taste?! We had a few different cake flavors and frosting flavors, and it was impossible to decide which combo was better. To be perfectly honest, the mini cake she made us for our first anniversary may not make it the full year, because it's hard to look at in the freezer every day and not want to devour it! If you're looking for a beautiful, great tasting cake - at an AMAZING value...then look no further than Sugar Lane Cake Shop!

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.
