Flavors

Our inventive flavors offer a modern twist on the traditional. We bake all of our cakes with quality ingredients and finish them off with Italian meringue buttercream, which has a lower sugar content making it silky smooth and less sweet than other buttercreams.

    ORDERING FAQs
    Why can’t I select my desired delivery date at checkout?
    We are open Wednesday-Sunday, and we require orders be placed a full two days before your desired date. Our online ordering system will show you the next available dates for orders. If you are trying to order more than two days out and aren’t seeing availability on a date you want, unfortunately that means we're fully booked for that day.
    Can I get a cake tomorrow?
    You can’t hurry great cake! We require orders be placed a full two days before your desired date. This allows our small team time to prepare all the cake, fillings and buttercream from scratch. We hope you’ll consider coming back when you’re able to order a few days in advance.
    What is your delivery radius?
    We deliver throughout the East Bay within a 20-mile radius of our Oakland bakery. Currently that means we deliver orders as far north as El Sobrante and Hercules, as far east as Walnut Creek and Alamo, and as far south as Hayward and Castro Valley.
    Can I have chocolate frosting on the Vanilla Confetti cake? Or cookie butter on the Triple Chocolate cake?
    All of our cakes are crafted with cake, fillings and buttercream flavors that complement each other. If you’re purchasing from our online store, we can’t accommodate substitutions at this time.
    Do you offer cake tasting boxes?
    You can request a cake tasting box for weddings. Let us know you’re interested in a cake tasting box when you complete our Custom Wedding Design Cake inquiry form
    I didn’t receive a confirmation email or text. How can I find out if my order was received?
    You should have received an email from the bakery via Shopify (our online store platform) when you place your order. It will include what you ordered, as well as your requested delivery or pick-up time. Please check your spam filter to ensure it didn’t accidentally get misdirected. If you’re still uncertain about the status of your order, please email us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
