Cakes? Cupcakes? Chocolate Strawberries? Say No More!
Cakes By Felton creates custom cake creations
Cakes by Felton, an up-and-coming home-baking operation, is a one-woman show.
Though this quality cake and cupcake business only recently gained social media attention – as the business went public about a year ago – it has been running out of owner and pastry chef Sarah Felton’s home kitchen for five years.
“My mom’s side of the family has always been baking and cooking,” Felton said. “I just picked it up from there and experimented along the way.”

While Felton has always loved baking, it became more than a hobby after she made a cake for a friend.
“As you do in an office, she sent out an email to everyone about the extra cake in the break room, and she signed it by saying there was a great ‘cake by Felton,’” Felton said. “After that, any time I made a cake, everyone would joke that it was another cake by Felton.”
The name stuck. Felton still bakes part time for anyone interested in buying her confectionaries. While cakes are a majority of what she does, Felton is also a skilled macaron maker. In a way to enhance her culinary skills, Felton visited France and learned how to make macarons from Jean Yves, a renowned pastry chef who teaches a two-hour-long course on how to make perfect macarons.
“He was really helpful,” Felton said, “and it was a great experience for me.”
From cakes with toppers, cake pops, chocolate strawberries, macarons, and more, Felton is willing to make it all.
