A Little History…

familyThere’s a rich history behind the delicious baking you experience at American Dream Cakes Bakery! From Great-Grandfather’s days in the old country bakery to now, the family has held a high standard of excellence and delicate craftsmanship that families can enjoy together.

While the new establishment is much more “state of the art” the quality and passion for freshness you taste in each and every pastry, cookie, cake or other creation is the same! Visit our location on Gum Branch Road to pickup some of their sweet delights baked fresh daily!

With so many of their clients planning for destination weddings in the Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle & Beaufort areas, they opened a show-room in Carteret county in 2010 (currently at 416 Cedar Point Blvd. by appointment).

In 2015 they added the #SweetTreatsTrailer. A 15′ concession trailer available for weddings, corporate events, festivals and other private functions.
