SusieCakes, an All-American home-style bakery by Chicago-born Susan Sarich, opens in Preston Center.
The company specializes in sentimental dessert favorites made from scratch using fresh, natural ingredients like European-style butter and Guittard chocolate.
Specialties include frosted layer cakes in flavors like Southern Red Velvet, Six Layer Chocolate and Tropical Coconut. Rotating seasonal offerings feature crumble-topped fruit pies, cookies, bars and cupcakes.
The store also serves freshly baked breakfast items—think sour cream coffee cake, maple granola and seasonal muffins, along with handcrafted espresso drinks. Oh my!
