Wedding Cakes & Gourmet Dessert Bakery in Sonoma County


Due to the yearlong pandemic/SIP we will be closing our storefront at the close of business on Sunday, February 14th, 2021.

We are not able to sustain the bakery as it is.  It is our plan to restructure the business and continue to make wedding cakes, custom cakes and cookies in another location. We are working on the where, we just do not know where as yet.

We will be following through with the wedding cakes and custom orders we have already committed to for 2021. We will continue let you know how and where we land. Please don’t worry, we got you covered.

It has been such an honor to be part of such a great community and to be of service to you.
