Time Honored Southern Layer Cakes

From picnic blanket to white linen, Sugaree’s cakes carry Southern sweetness wherever they go. Our family recipes go back generations, and we honor them by using only simple, from-scratch, locally-sourced ingredients. We hope to see you soon at Sugaree’s Bakery. If you can’t make it, no worries – we ship nationwide.

A Taste of Tradition


Every cake is handmade in our New Albany bakery, using traditional family recipes, with a little sass thrown in here and there. There’s no mass production. Our bakery isn’t big enough for that, and our baker wouldn’t allow it.

Premium Ingredients

If your grandmother didn’t have it in her kitchen, you won’t find it in our cakes. The distinct character of each of our confections comes from the authenticity of our ingredients, the alchemy of our recipes, and the care we put into
each cake.

Southern-Style Sweetness

For people from around here, we’re a taste of home that will remind you to share a fond memory. For those farther off, you’ll taste an authentic, regional take on the cake.
Or rather, many takes. Classic Southern sweetness is sometimes coy and sometimes bold, but it’s always dressed for the occasion.

More Sugaree’s Desserts

assorted cupcakes


Our cupcakes are made with the same delicious recipes we use for our layer cakes – just in bite size versions! Well, they might be a bit bigger than bite size... unless you’re an alligator.

A small and large chocolate meringue pie on trays next to a plant


Every pie starts with our homemade lard and butter crust. We always use locally-grown pecans, sweet potatoes, and strawberries. Southern Living put our chocolate meringue pie on their “Top Ten Best Southern Pies” list!

assorted brownies

Brownies & Bars

Our brownies are rich and moist — not too cakey, not too fudgy. We use very high quality chocolate and butter for all of our bars.

assorted cookies and tarts


We’ve collected recipes from family and friends (like Ms. Voncile, a lunchroom lady known for her tea cakes) to make our cookies and we use high quality chocolate, local pecans, and European butter.
