In Their Own Words:
We are a full service cake design and dessert company located in The Mad River Valley. We specialize in custom designed wedding and special occasion cakes. We also build delectable dessert tables if cake is not your style.
Each cake is made entirely from scratch using fresh and local ingredients to create well balanced layers of flavors, and a cloud like swiss meringue buttercream. Our cakes that are not too sweet and are a perfect end to a magical event.
Our owner and pastry chef, Sarah Auger, graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in 2009. Over the last ten years she has worked as a pastry chef for farm to table restaurants, high end catering companies and top bakeries in Vermont, San Francisco and New York City. After traveling for portions of her career, Sarah has landed back in the Mad River Valley where she grew up, finding inspiration in the beautiful surroundings here.
Favorite Moment During a Wedding: Eating the cake obviously! And getting out on the dance floor!
Favorite Vermont Activity: I really enjoy being outside, whether it’s hiking with my pups, lounging next to the river, or cross country skiing.

Incredibly gorgeous and delicious
We would absolutely recommend Sarah and The Goose Chase Cake Designs! The whole process of working with her went incredibly smoothly, with good communication and willingness to adapt and try new things to meet our requests. She is just a lovely person! The result was an absolutely stunning dessert display, that not only looked fabulous but tasted incredible. We had a 3 tier cake in 2 flavors and 4 different mini desserts. Our only regret is that our guests gobbled them up so quickly, we didn’t get to try them all! So, order more than you think – you will need them! 😉
A true artist
The Goose Chase Cake Design was the perfect choice for our wedding! Sarah was extremely helpful and easy to work with, and had brilliant ideas to satisfy our cravings for more “interesting” flavors. She was accommodating to our changing schedule (owing to the pandemic), and delivered with exceptionally delicious treats on our wedding day. The guests were raving about them, too! Would 100% recommend to anyone! She is a true artist.
