Since opening in July, South Bay residents with a sweet tooth are satisfying cravings at SusieCakes in Manhattan Village mall.

The neighborhood bakery, which currently has four locations in Southern California, is renowned for its array of home-style, all-American desserts — everything from Seasonal Pies to Custom Layer Cakes and Home Made Puddings — made from scratch daily by in-house bakers using the freshest and finest ingredients.

“SusieCakes complements the Manhattan Beach community as it’s family-oriented, close-knit, and friendly,” says Founder and Owner Susan Sarich. “I’m so excited to share our old-fashioned treats and become a place people in the area look forward to visiting. The newest location in Manhattan Beach will feature the bakery’s signature seafoam-green walls, sleek chrome outdoor chairs and tables on the patio, vintage Betty Crocker posters, and black-and-white '60s birthday party photographs, fostering an atmosphere that is retro and classic.

SusieCakes’ most popular cake flavor is Susie’s Famous Southern Red Velvet — a deep red, moist cake lightly flavored with cocoa and topped with traditional cream cheese frosting, which recently took first place in the “Best Traditional” category of the 2009 Nesquik Cupcake Challenge in Los Angeles.
