About Us

The Sugar Lab specializes in custom cakes and mini desserts that look and taste great. 

Owners and mother-daughter duo Kelly Shirk and Alison Davis created the Sugar Lab in April 2012 by blending two passions: sweets and science. 

Kelly has had a passion for cooking and baking her whole life.  She owned a small café when she was 20 years old and opened a chocolate shop after family and friends repeatedly commented that she should sell her creations.

Alison has been baking with Kelly since she was 3, helping to mix the batter and licking the spoon when they were done. While obtaining her biology degree from Cal Poly, Alison’s passion for cake decorating flourished. It seemed like every week she was baking. As a member of Chi Omega, Alison made several cakes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s wish granting parties. After graduation, she continued to bake for family and friends with great success.

The pair decided to open up a bakery and confections shop to showcase their many talents and creations.

  • Sugar lab was fantastic to work with for our wedding. We had a lot of last minute changes to COVID and we weren't even sure if our wedding would continue. Sugar Lab understood the challenges we were dealing with and worked out a payment situation based around what CA was allowing with weddings. The luau themed sugar cookies for our rehearsal dinner were so cute and fun! Best part was they tasted like heaven! The 8" marbled cutting cake was absolutely delicious. Best fondant I have ever had! The little dessert boxes (brownie, cheesecake, cupcake) were a huge hit. We had family contacting us days after to see if we had any left. These were the perfect little packaged desserts for an unusual COVID wedding. I wish we didn't live in Florida so we could use them for all of our events!
