Sarah Blanchard

A Baking & Pastry Arts graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Sarah began her career in cake design in 2004 in Charlotte, NC. She worked her way through college collaborating on hundreds of cake for a local wedding cakery. Her love for the kitchen continued after graduation when she made her way back home to Roanoke, Virginia. In 2014 Sarah officially founded Fresh Baked and she is excited to bring a fresh perspective to weddings in the Roanoke Valley. She chose the name โ€œFresh Bakedโ€ to represent her commitment to small batch, never frozen cakes, made with local ingredients. She uses an old-fashioned family cake recipe combined with a Swiss Meringue buttercream to create cakes that are not only beautiful but also delicious.

Although she enjoys creating all types of celebration cakes, wedding cakes are her true passion. She loves meeting couples and hearing about all of their wedding plans, not just their cake dreams. Sarah enjoys every aspect of the wedding cake process, from the initial one-on-one meeting to delivering the final product. She strives to create perfect smooth buttercream and flawless fondant covered cakes for every wedding and special event. 

"My mission is to seamlessly contribute to your most important celebrations and to fill your life with delicious cake." -Sarah
