West Coast bakery SusieCakes is preparing to open its first Houston outpost in Rice Village.
The bakery originated in Los Angeles, where SusieCakes founder Susan Sarich began whipping up her grandmothers’ original recipes for classic baked goods like cupcakes and whoopie pies. The chain has since expanded to more than 20 locations in California and Texas, including multiple outposts in Dallas-Fort Worth. The Rice Village location is SusieCakes’ first foray into Houston, and more locations could be on the way.
In addition to the famous frosting-filled cupcakes, SusieCakes bakes up frosted layer cakes in perennial flavors like red velvet and six-layer chocolate, in addition to pies, brownies, cookies, and whoopie pies, all made without artificial preservatives, high-fructose corn syrups, or trans fats. “If you can’t spell it, we don’t bake with it,” Sarich said in a statement. “We bake our products from scratch using only the freshest and finest natural ingredients, including European-style butter and premium chocolate.” SusieCakes also offers custom cake services for special events, with tastings by appointment.
The Rice Village outpost of SusieCakes, located at 2563 Amherst Street, will host its grand opening festivities on December 9, starting at 10 a.m. The bakery will be open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
