You can get your SusieCakes fix in Carlsbad

Posted: Updated:
CARLSBAD (CBS 8) - California's favorite LA-based bakery specializing in classic, made-from-scratch desserts has announced the opening of their first San Diego store, located in Carlsbad. San Diegans no longer have to drive to Orange County to get their goodie fix! 

SusieCakes, an all-American, home-style bakery, announced the upcoming opening of its newest location in Carlsbad. Founded by Susan Sarich in 2006, the company specializes in an array of sentimental dessert favorites made from scratch with simple ingredients by on-site bakers. 

“Carlsbad is an ideal location for SusieCakes because of its close-knit, family-friendly community,” said Sarich. “We hope we can make any occasion in the neighborhood, large or small, a little sweeter.”

The first San Diego SusieCakes will open in Carlsbad with a big grand opening on Saturday, March 21. Located at 7610 Via Campanile in the La Costa Town Square shopping center, SusieCakes Carlsbad will open its doors to the public on March 21 with a family-friendly celebration. From 1-4pm, guests will be treated to complimentary mini desserts, photo ops in a classic car, face painting, a balloon artist, and a coloring contest for kids. The kickoff celebration continues all month long with special promotions including a cupcake happy hour and two-for-one slices of cake. Hours of operation will be Monday through Saturday, 10am -7pm.

Presenting a welcome alternative to the artificial flavors and preservatives found at most grocery-store bakeries, SusieCakes offers a variety of nostalgic desserts in a friendly, old-fashioned neighborhood experience. Specialties include decadent cupcakes and frosted layer cakes in familiar flavors such as red velvet, chocolate and coconut. Rotating seasonal offerings feature fresh fruit pies baked in flaky crusts and holiday-inspired treats. A selection of classic cookies and bars includes soft and chewy snickerdoodles, fudgy brownies, seven layer bars and their famous whoopie pies.

The first SusieCakes bakery opened eight years ago in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The company steadily expanded to include locations in Calabasas, Studio City, Manhattan Beach, Newport Beach, Marina del Rey, Costa Mesa and Studio City. Demand for the trademark home-baked taste wasn't limited to southern California, as Sarich satisfied northern California “SusieFans” with outposts throughout the San Francisco bay area and up to Sacramento as well.

The new Carlsbad space is a bright and homey dessert haven with its old-fashioned glass bakery case and retro color scheme featuring “Susie Blue,” the brand's signature color. A window offers a mouth-watering peek into the kitchen as the culinary team puts the finishing touches on custom cake orders.

SusieCakes also offers the services of a Celebration Specialist, a cake connoisseur available for guests to work with to create their dream custom confection. Armed with an iPad full of photos for inspiration, the Celebration Specialist hosts complimentary tastings by appointment and guides guests on creating the perfect dessert spread for any celebration. Children's birthdays, weddings and other special occasions receive a sweet touch with artistic, hand-decorated stacked cakes, cookies and cupcakes designed to match party colors and themes.
