All About Us - A Slice of Heaven

Sarasota's best choice for custom cakes.  Our primary specialty is custom cakes and cake related goodies.  We focus all our efforts into custom cakes and not try to be a full service retail bakery offering lots of specialty items like pies, truffles, scones, breads, ect.  If it's custom cake you are seeking, we are one of the best!


Local owner / operators that have been Sarasota residents of 25+ years.   We live, work, and support Sarasota. We are not a Franchise but a single unit.


We are not a copycat cake shop like CakesSarasota.com  New on the cake scene,  not in Sarasota but West Bradenton, and try to deceive you to think they are us.  We have no affiliation with them whatsoever. 


A Slice of Heaven has been operating on the web as sarasotacakes.com since 1997


We have seen many competitors come and go through the years as well as novice cake makers operating unlicensed from their home.


Yes the original bakery was at 4944 Fruitville road in Sarasota from 1997 thru 2010.  We moved into our new 2500 sq ft facility 5632 Palmer Blvd Sarasota in 10/2010 .


Yes we have been and always operated a fully insured, licensed, and inspected bakery facility.


Yes every cake picture on our website has been produced by us.   Every cake is smooth buttercream NO FONDANT.


Why don't we offer (same day) cakes with less than 24 hours?  Most of the time we sell out dates 4/5 days in advance. With the word custom, we refuse to distract attention given to the current event cakes in order to create more sales.  


Why are we sometimes hard to reach?   With a very limited staff and no desire to get larger, we return calls and emails based upon the date of the event and as quickly as possible.  But will not disappoint a booked client to discuss last minute cakes.   Our reputation is super important to us.


Why do offer catering?  Because we have 50 years combined professional kitchen experience with formal culinary degrees coupled with the newer facility that has tons of space.  Like our cakes, we only produce the best quality that we can be proud to offer.  We offer these services based upon time availability placing the cake production number one. 


How many custom cakes have we made?  Our experience is in excess of 20 thousand cakes produced.  Each one is custom one of a kind. Wedding cakes alone are over 2 thousand.  


Why we consider ourselves Sarasota's Premier Source for the Best Custom Cakes?  Because we strive to offer the highest level of cake and filling quality,  artistry, and customer service setting us apart as local industry leaders.
