  • If you want an exquisite, delicious and stunning wedding cake choose Sugar and Scribe Bakery to do the work. We planned a destination wedding to San Diego and everything that was promised was perfect. We couldn't have dreamed of a more beautiful cake!! It was very delicious!!! We did cut and serve to our guests at the wedding dinner (It was way too beautiful to cut!) It truly was a perfect masterpiece and my pictures of it turned out like a magazine front cover! You should definitely let them help make your special day absolutely top notch! We couldn't have been more pleased! Thank You Sugar and Scribe! We recommend you highly!

  • YES YES YES! Sugar and Scribe hit the ball out of the park. My husband and I had a three tier vanilla/buttercream cake and a quarter sheet carrot cake for the grooms cake. Maeve and Jade were very friendly and worked with me through everything. I would highly recommend to any friend of mine!

  • Sugar and Scribe provided desserts for my wedding in November 2016. I looked endlessly at other bakeries that would do an assorted desserts menu and tasted at two other places. This place had the best tasting desserts and were even the least expensive! Ordered assorted desserts but still wanted a small 8" cake for cutting and family. They did a great job personalizing what flavors we wanted, and even added a little bit of glitter to some items to spruce them up! Maeve came and used the flowers from the florist to decorate the cake herself. The cake was delicious and moist. We should have definitely ordered more - we didn't account for lots of drunk people taking more than the usual amount of dessert! If you think your guests will get the drunk munchies, I definitely recommend ordering more than recommended because all of the desserts were gone within 10 minutes. Maeve did a beautiful, clean job on the cake and the assorted desserts were delicious. Now I just want to go back ... Read more

  • Sugar and Scribe is absolutely amazing and made our wedding day sweet and perfect! From the cake tasting to our big day they were friendly, helpful, and absolutely amazing! I had the pleasure of working with Jade and Maeve and they helped me come up with such wonderful ideas for my wedding cake and the cupcakes to accompany it. They had such cool and delicious flavors to choose from and we couldn't just choose one! We ended up getting a few different flavors including pistachio, peanut butter-chocolate, and raspberry, which were all scrumptious but we are OBSESSED with the elderberry flavor. We can't wait to order it again for anniversaries and special occasions! They traveled all the way to a little winery in Ramona for our wedding and delivered our cake and cupcakes on time and in perfect condition. They did such a beautiful job with the frosting and the cake and cupcakes were moist and beyond delicious! So good that my guests begged to take leftovers home! I definitely reccomend wo...

  • The service, flexibility, and food from this bakery all exceeded expectations. I had a pre-wedding tea party here and we got our mini desserts and wedding cake from Sugar and Scribe. I would absolutely recommend them for weddings or parties!

  • Sugar and Scribe made the most beautiful gluten-free pastries for our wedding. We settled on the red velvet for our cake and ordered pie bites in strawberry-rhubarb and mixed berry and everything was so delicious. The red velvet was super rich and chocolatey plus moist and you would never know it was gluten free. On top of being everything being scrumptious the cake was gorgeous, semi-naked with flowers it was so beautiful my dessert table was stunning.

  • Besides the professional service you'll receive from Maeve and her team, you'll also get the delicious sweets. The cake was incredible! We did cupcakes for our guests and we've been getting so many compliments, even now. I definitely recommend!

  • YUM!!!!! Sugar and Scribe did our wedding desserts and everything was amazingly delicious! We had a small round cake just for us, and mini pies and cupcakes for the guests. Everyone was raving about them all night and we've still been craving them ever since.

  • The best! I wrote Maeve a frantic email because my original cake baker unexpectedly decided to "take a break" from wedding cakes about 8 weeks before my wedding. She happily said she could do it for us. We only got a cake topper for the cake cutting at our wedding but still...she saved us. She was very nice, patient and promised us she would not drop out on us haha. She fit us in for a tasting right away and we showed her our design ideas. She gave us a price, we told her which flavor and that was that! So easy. The cake was beautiful and delicious! Definitely recommend!

  • Sugar and Scribe provided our cake to cut, as well as cupcakes for our wedding. Every flavor was so wonderful at our tasting it was hard to pick our favorites. The option to pick many flavors is great. The frosting is divine! I called the week of my wedding to make sure everything was all set, and they followed through with everything just great. The only change I would make is making sure they let my planner know which flavor was which the day of, obviously wasn't a make or break it since they were all so good, but would have been nice to know before hand. It also would have been nice to have a box to take our cake home in. All in all, I would recommend Maeve and Sugar and Scribe to anyone and I can't wait to go back!

  • Planned my wedding from out of state and had to rely on reviews to find someone to make desserts. Found Sugar and Scribe thruogh google and yelp, and was very hopeful. Planned and paid for everything weeks before the wedding, and finally got there a week prior to walking down the aisle to taste the desserts. Everything was DELICIUOS!! i was super surprised, too! i'm a very picky eater and thought i'd end up with some plain chocolate cupcakes, some chocolate chip cookies, and some brownies, but i was so very pleasantly surprised. She made some scrumptious cupcakes, my favorite being the orange creamsicle, and my husband's being the tieramasu. Then her mini pies were super yummy, honestly we had such a hard time picking and choosing that she had to put a limit of how many different things we could have. Out of everyone i hired to help with my wedding, Sugar and Scribe is my very top favorite. No regrets. No problems. Everything was perfect. Next time i'm in the area, i'm going in for ano...

  • I am so lucky that I found this amazing bakery! I have now ordered a total of 4 birthday cakes from them and have to say that they have all been delicious, fresh and beautifully decorated. I absolutely recommend them. If you want great quality and service, then do not hesitate to order your cake from Sugar and Scribe.

  • We booked sugar and scribe for our wedding last September. our wedding was out of state and all of our communication was done over the phone. The woman that I was dealing with on the phone in my experience was not particularly flexible. In my experience it seemed that she was trying to get us to order more desserts than we needed. When I insisted on less she made a comment about my guests not being able to be fed enough. The amount I ordered ended up being perfect if anything it was still a little too much. There were several flavors that were not available in the cupcakes and I understand that. I feel like it could have been made more clear on the order form because we went back and forth a few times. On the day of the event they did not make it very easy to schedule to get to the venue to set up. (They said they needed 3 hours before set up but we only had access to the venue 2 hours before). It made me feel like I was putting them out rather than them being flexible. W... Read more

  • The wedding cake and mini-cupcakes were everything that I could have hoped for! Sugar & Scribe truly blew away our guests with the most divine dessert to end a beautiful evening. I was instantly in love with Sugar & Scribe from the first tasting. I have a irrational disgust for the “jelly” fillings that most bakeries use to fill their cakes, and I was so thankful that the chef at Sugar & Scribe did not have this on their tasting menu. Every sample that we tasted was mind-blowing! Which really made it hard to choose which flavors we wanted at our wedding. We went with standard flavors for the guests that may not be as adventurous, but even the “Vanilla Vanilla” and “Chocolate Salted Caramel” were huge hits with everyone. But my surprise favorite was Elderberry – similar to blueberry but creamier and ridiculously velvety.
