Welcome to Sugar High, a series devoted solely to spotlighting the best ways to sate a sweet tooth in St. Louis. We'll sample the best the city has to offer at restaurants, bakeries and holes-in-the-wall, and provide some insight on how these confections are made along the way.

Since opening in 2011, I Scream Cakes (2641 Cherokee Street; 314-932-5758) has offered picture-perfect ice cream cakes using its own from-scratch, all-natural ice cream. Chef and owner Kerry Soraci, who moonlights as a tattoo artist at Iron Age Tattoo, makes one-of-a-kind, award-winning treats including everything from intricate, fully edible sculptures to gluten-free drumsticks, garlic ice cream, beer floats and even frozen treats for pups.
Her latest novelty creation features a collaboration with artisan pastry makers Vincent Van Doughnut: the "I Scream Sammy." Every Saturday morning starting at 11 a.m., you can create your own ice-cream sandwich by pairing a doughnut with a scoop of your choice.
