Sherry's Cake Creations

Sherry's Cake Creations Hello, I'm Sherry! Here's a little about me:

I have 2 children (Olivia and Owen) and am a former full time Engineer by day and a baker by night.
(45)

I have given up my Engineering Full time career to make baking my new full time gig so that I can be around more for my kids! Baking really is my happy place. I am a self-taught home-baker. I began just making cute cakes for my own kids, then would get asked to help out friends and family with their cake needs. One thing led to another and it gradually expanded into a small side business. I still

REALLY enjoy every single cake I make and love new challenges that come along. I am happy to work with any allergies/sensitivities that may exist (i.e. Gluten, nuts, dairy, eggs) and will adjust my recipes as needed. I NEVER have any nuts in or around my cakes unless specifically requested. (I have a fabulous Nutella Buttercream, that I have to keep secret from my own children or it won't make it out of the house.) My favorite types of cakes are for kids and baby showers, and weddings, however, I am up for anything and love trying new things. I am getting more and more into making wedding cakes and am really enjoying doing those. Be on the lookout for any specials or pop up items I offer periodically through my site - especially at holidays!

This beauty was for a beautiful lady who definitely does not look like she belongs in the 50 club!

The design was left up to me with simple instructions to make it rose gold and white with a “50” on top. I was feeling a bit boho inspired that day and love how it turned out.

Hand made rose gold topper, rose gold gold-leaf, fresh flowers and a pretty boho buttercream stencil on an almond cake with vanilla buttercream! (My favorite flavor!)

This beauty in black and gold for a gorgeous Angus Barn wedding could only be fully appreciated in person (very hard to get pics to capture its true look) for one of the sweetest brides I’ve ever worked with!

I wish Madison and Bennett the happiest life together! May all your dreams come true!

The cake was a wonderful combination of coconut cake (coconut cream and coconut flakes and more in this decadent recipe) with vanilla buttercream. Only black on the outermost layer with touches of hand painted gold and hand made gold leaf flakes to give it a petal look with a unique cut-away. A modern stunner of a wedding cake perfect for the upscale venue of the pavilion at the Angus Barn!

Note: This was more of a display cake as the Angus Barn served other desserts.

My Story

Hello, I'm Sherry! Here's a little about me: I have 2 children (Olivia and Owen) and I was an Engineer for 19 years and decided to leave corporate America and my commute to RTP to be around more for my children with all their sports and activities so now I have time to focus on my cake business more full time and work it around my family. Baking cakes really is my happy place. I am a self-taught home-baker. I began just making cute cakes for my own kids, then would get asked to help out friends and family with their cake needs. One thing led to another and it gradually expanded into a small side business, and now my main business. I still REALLY enjoy every single cake I make and love new challenges that come along. I am happy to work with any allergies that may exist (i.e. nuts, dairy, eggs, gluten) and will adjust my recipes as needed. I NEVER have any nuts in my cake unless specifically requested. (I make a fabulous Nutella Buttercream, that I have to hide from my own children or it won’t make it out of the house.) I love making fun cakes! Whether they be for kids, baby shower or for those fun adults that never grow up! I also enjoy making pretty, elegant cakes. Always looking for new challenges and trying out new techniques. Never be afraid to ask me to try something you’ve seen somewhere. I’ll be honest if I think it’s outside of my wheelhouse, but I’m almost always up for the challenge!
