Wedding Cake in Marin County?

  • 8

My SO & I are having a wedding celebration in Inverness next April. My original idea was to get our wedding cake from the Freeport Bakery in Sacramento (my hometown), but they won't deliver that far away, and it seems burdensome to ask someone to bring it - so I'm looking at other options. Details about the cake: It's to serve 30 people, it must be very chocolatey for SO, and we have a design in mind that while specific is very simple. And, obviously, it must be delicious!

Has anybody had any good (or bad) experiences with Marin bakeries? One that looks promising is Victoria Pastry Co. in Greenbrae - has anybody gotten a cake from there? Or am I better off paying more (presumably) for delivery from SF, Sonoma, or Napa - and if so, which bakeries are recommended? Citizen Cake? Perfect Endings?

TIA for any and all recommendations!

  1. You can do much better than Victoria Pastry.

    Debbie Does Desert does an absolutely outstanding job on their cakes. They have a cafe in San Anslemo you can check out:

    Emporio Rulli in Larkspur is a wonderful bakery albeit pricey and probably stylized. I would contact them as to what options they have:

    Sweet Things in Tiburon also has a good product and has a big presence in the county. I assume they do wedding cakes too but give them a try:

    There is also a great resource for wedding vendors and services at:

    I've got a great florest and a band/dj recommendation if you need it too.

    Congratulations and good luck!

      I don't need a band or DJ, but I would love to get your florist recommendation! I don't think they'll let you post it here, so could you email me at annaeching@hotmail.com? Thank you!

    2. We had wonderful cake from Jill Branch www.branchingoutcakes.com. She is in Corte Madera

      1. Thanks for the recommendations, MSK and Giselle!

        1. Has anyone had cake from Fleur de Lisa in Santa Rosa? They seem to get a lot of press, but of course that is only about looks!

          1. Daughter's wedding cake was from Victoria, which they delivered to Nicasio. Delicious!
