Cakes & Bakeries

Wedding Cakes and Bakeries, in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill & Cary, NC and other Non-Traditional Dessert Ideas for NC weddings

Choosing your wedding cake and other sweet desserts for your wedding reception is one of the most fun jobs of wedding planning. Our Southern Bride & Groom professional wedding cake designers recommended on this page are all licensed by the state and have fully equipped and inspected kitchens for the highest standards. These Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Cary NC bakeries make beautiful and delicious wedding cakes, as well as cupcakes, pastries, cookies, chocolates and whatever you might desire for your wedding. We also understand that there are many couples who prefer something less-traditional, like a wedding dessert bar. Or consider a frozen treat... perhaps New York Italian ice sounds refreshing for a summer wedding in NC!

Try to book your wedding cake designer about 6 months in advance of your Raleigh area wedding, just to make sure your top choice can accommodate your date. Bring these professionals the wedding cake designs and dessert photos that have inspired you. Explore SB&G’s Pinterest and Instagram pages for examples of cakes by these very vendors. Decide on one or two to visit, and make a date out of the tasting. You’ll get to sample some flavors to make sure you like their style. Of course, many of these bakers are brick and mortar shops that you can pop into anytime for a taste test. We highly encourage this! You have to be sure you have the right flavor, after all.
