SusieCakes Opens in Laguna Niguel

We attended as a guest of SusieCakes

SusieCakes, which is known for their traditional, all-American classic bakery offerings will finally open their doors this weekend in Laguna Niguel.


This last week, Founder Susan Sarich hosted a private cake sampling of its top-sellers paired with fantastic wines.

Wine paired with the Vanilla Celebration Cake. Divine!

Samplings included these incredibly rich, melt-in-your-mouth cake delights:

Luscious Lemon Cake
Tropical Coconut Cake
Vanilla Celebration Cake (This was Susie’s birthday cake throughout her life, and still a favorite!)
Carrot Cake
Susie’s Famous Southern Red Velvet
Classic Marble Cake
Old-Fashioned 6-Layer Chocolate Cake

I'm not usually a carrot cake person, but this cake was amazing with its chunky praline filling, pecans and golden raisins topped with cream cheese frosting and bursts of cinnamon.

Founded by Sarich in 2006, she assured us that the “tastes just like your grandma’s” cakes, cookies, cupcakes, pies, and puddings are made entirely from scratch using simple, natural ingredients right on the premises. And nothing frozen, or re-heated—ever.

Sarich pointed out that most of their treats should not be refrigerated as the icing is made from real butter it tends to harden in the refrigerator. Leave at room temperature to ensure proper consistency and flavor. No one likes stale, hard cake!

And, it’s no wonder these rich, texture-heavy delights taste like something my grandma used to bake, as Sarich actually helped foster her grandmothers’ recipes from their own handwritten recipe cards.

Hangin' with Susie.

“You most likely recall a cake as part of your life’s milestone celebrations. Cake has the unique ability to connect us with the people and events of our past. However, cake should not be reserved only for these special occasions. A delicious slice of cake can immediately bring a bit of celebration to an ordinary day. I hope you enjoy SusieCakes on your special occasions, as well as all the days in between,” said Sarich.

Happy cake eating!
