Best Bakeries in the East Bay?

Looking for a bakery that makes fantastic cakes with milk cholocate icing, It is a special birthday request from a friend. Any suggestions? I can go to any bakery from Hayward to Berkeley.

  1. Chocolate lattee cake from Neldam's in Oakland, basically a chocolate version of tres leches with a milk chocolate whipped cream frosting. Here's my old post on it, and here's the photo from neldam's website,

      Wow, that cake sounds good. If you decide to go to Neldam's and your friend's birthday is in the next few days, give them a call to check whether they're open. I drove by today and there was a sign that looked like it said they're closed over Labor Day weekend.

    2. I think Masse's in Berkeley has the best cake in the East Bay, but I doubt that they do milk chocolate (vs. dark).

        Masse's did an amazing job on our wedding cake. I'm sure they can do milk chocolate if you ask. Probably just involves melting a different chocolate.
