SusieCakes is finally coming to San Diego, they are opening their first ever San Diego location in Carlsbad on March 21st. SusieCakes is an all-American, homestyle bakery specializing in you guessed it cakes! The cakes are all made from scratch with a one-of-a-kind taste without any artificial preservatives and flavors found at most grocery store bakeries. All of the recipes are straight from Susie’s grandmothers original 3×5 recipe cards, and believe me you can taste the difference.
Luscious Lemon Cake
We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the new store and all of the amazing treats yesterday. Some of the favorites are of course Susie’s Famous Southern Red Velvet, Carrot Cake and my personal favorite the Tropical Coconut Cake. The Coconut cake is a vanilla cake with layers of pineapple accented with coconut filling, and topped with fluffy coconut buttercream and shredded coconut, there are no words for how delicious it was. My mothers favorite cake was the Luscious Lemon, with layers of vanilla cake filled with smooth and tart lemon curd, topped with vanilla buttercream, it was perfection. The lemon cake was a little much for me (although I’m not a lemon fan to begin with) because chemo has killed some of her taste buds I was so happy to find something she really enjoyed. I’m pretty sure I know which cake I will get her for her birthday! For the full menu of specialty layer cakes, cupcakes, pies, puddings, cheesecakes, cookies, bars and custom layer cakes click here.
