Confessions of a Wedding Fairy!

Savoring Sweetness: Discovering Premier Bakers in Sanford, North Carolina

Vendors

Hey y’all, I’ve got a little secret! Wedding cakes have never been my favorite dessert. I’m not into mounds of frosting, overly sweet batters, or giant slabs of gooey cakes. But don’t get me wrong, I do love other sweets. So, why am I qualified to write about this topic? Why choose desserts as the subject of my very first blog post? Glad you asked! The vendors I’m about to share with you today have dazzled me with their decadent delights! Every time they arrive on wedding day, I know I’m in for a treat! So, let’s dive in—or should I say, pass me a slice!

ENCHANTED MOMENTS CUSTOM CAKES – TRACY MELBY

As soon as I see Tracy’s name on the vendor sheet, I’m instantly at ease. From years of experience, I know that Tracy gives consistent attention to her clients, always delivering cakes that are moist, delicious, and absolutely beautiful. Nestled in the heart of Broadway, Enchanted Moments Custom Cakes stands as a beloved gem in Sanford’s baking scene. Tracy’s creations are more than just cakes; they’re works of art. Each cake tells a story, making celebrations even more special and memorable.

But what makes working with Tracy even more delightful is her warm personality. Whenever we collaborate, I know we’re in for some fantastic conversations about all things Disney World or Harry Potter. It’s this personal touch, combined with her exceptional talent, that makes Enchanted Moments Custom Cakes a standout.

CAPTIVATE CAKE STUDIOS – KYLE & HANNAH BETTS

I first met Kyle at a micro wedding years ago. I’ll never forget the moment when the couple’s grandfather stood up and declared it was the best cake he had ever tasted. My curiosity got the better of me, and I simply had to try it. To my surprise, it was amazing, and I’ve been a fan ever since! Some of my favorite flavors include Blackberry Earl Grey, Blueberry Lemon Lavender, and Peach Ginger Bourbon.

Captivate Cake Studios is synonymous with luxury and sophistication. Based in Raleigh, but traveling to Sanford often, Kyle and Hannah’s creations are visually stunning. Whether you desire a traditional tiered cake or a trendy dessert table, Captivate Cake Studios will elevate your wedding celebration!

FANCY & FROSTED – SHONDA TUCK-STRICKLAND

Shonda wowed me at a networking event two years ago with her red velvet cheesecake. Despite all my talk about not liking cakes, I have a special place in my heart (and on my hips, haha) for cheesecake. She won me over, not only with her desserts but also with her warm smile and sweet personality.

For couples looking to add a flavorful touch to their wedding desserts, Fancy & Frosted is a must-visit. Shonda’s creations are perfect for those who want to offer their guests a variety of flavors and personalized treats, making each bite a delightful experience.

MEME’S BAKERY- MACKENZIE HARE

“Mackenzie is one of my newest vendors, and I absolutely love recommending her. When she arrives with her cakes, I know they will wow the guests. Besides always receiving a warm hug, she occasionally surprises me with a couple of my favorite cookies, just because she knows how much I enjoy them!

Mackenzie takes pride in using premium ingredients and advanced techniques to create cakes that not only look stunning but also taste divine. Whether you prefer a traditional flavor or a unique blend, Meme’s Bakery will create a cake that beautifully tells your love story and leaves a lasting impression on your guests.”
