A humongous thank you to Sugar Sweet Sunshine for the incredible job done with my wedding cake! Sugar Sweet Sunshine has been my favorite bakery for years since my move to New York and who else to bake my wedding cake? From the speed of the initial consultation, the... Read More affordability of the cake, the IMPECCABLE communication, the pleasantness and to-the-point professionalism of every single interaction, I could not recommend this place more. I sent Peggy (my direct contact) pinterest images and google images of my dream cake and, I kid you not, the cake Peggy personally delivered was straight from the pictures sent. By the way, Sugar Sweet Sunshine bakes their wedding cakes from the same mix used to make their cupcakes so the cake is guaranteed not to fail. The cupcakes you've loved for years is literally what you get to eat in sliced form. The cake was, hands down, the best part of my wedding.

We had cakes for both our engagement party and our wedding from Sugar Sweet Sunshine. From our initial tasting through to eating our leftover wedding cake on the sofa it was a fantastic experience. Peg is absolutely lovely and she helped us decide what we wanted (pistachio for... Read More the engagement party, and pumpkin and vanilla for the wedding), and how best to work within our budget. She was very understanding of how much we had to spend and we ended up with a small tiered cake and additional sheet cakes. Most importantly of all the cakes were incredibly delicious, being both moist and light. We got so many compliments about how it was the best wedding cake ever. Thanks so much to Sugar Sweet Sunshine - highly recommended!

I did a lot of research to find the perfect cupcakes in NY. I found a lot of places to be overpriced for the quality. I wanted simple cupcakes, nothing over-decorated or overdone to take away from the delicious taste. When I found Sugar Sweet Sunshine, I knew they were going... Read More to be perfect. The women who own the shop are true New Yorkers. They make the most perfect cupcake and have such exciting flavors to choose from...not to mention the fun names they use to describe their cupcakes. I went with 200 cupcakes and a 5" layer cake for the top of the cupcake tier. They came in the morning of the wedding, put together the cupcake tree with ribbon around it, and made sure the display was perfect. The guests could not keep their hands off of the cupcakes. They were such a hit...especially the Pistachio flavor. The team there is really willing to work with you to make your vision come true and they are so pleasant to work with, I will definitely use them again in the future for events.

We get cupcakes from this shop all the time. Everyone loves them! We purchased their cupcakes for our wedding but have also used them for baby showers and birthdays. Very affordable ($1.75 per cupcake). They also make full cakes, as well.

Delicious cake!

Deb, the owner/founder/matermind behind SSS is so wonderful. She does not do many wedding cakes, but she did one for us, that was unbelievable. She even did a few trials cakes for us and sent pictures so we could make sure we were on the same page. My husband and I are in love... Read More with their cupcakes, but opted for a very simple and traditional 4 tier pistachio cake with moose (buttercream) icing. Deb with her team, did not disappoint! And the price was better than any other bakery we found. The design and details were not like traditional wedding cakes, as we kept it very very simple, but taste was more important than look for me.
