It all started back in 1999 when Meghan's older sister wanted a 2nd wedding cake for her hometown wedding reception, to celebrate with her California family and friends who could not travel to the Virginia wedding. Meghan was certainly up for the challenge and took an 8 week cake decorating class to learn simple buttercream piping techniques. This is where her love for baking, designing and sculpting cakes began. Amongst her peers, Meghan is considered to be an accomplished artist in areas of painting, sculpting, illustrations and graphic designs.

We are very proud that our cakes and other pastries are baked fresh (never frozen!) onsite at our Elk Grove bakery. Our fillings and frostings are also made fresh with only the finest & freshest ingredients.

 Above & Beyond Cakes offers more than just delicious ingredients and creative designs... they are a symbol and extension of our client's taste, style and personality. We strive for perfection in all our cake creations. Our cakes, cupcakes and other confections are joyful centerpieces for all of life’s celebrations - including weddings, anniversaries, showers, birthdays, and bar mitzvahs.
