      I second Esther's. They come to the Farmer's Market in Alameda every Tuesday (9 am- 1pm) and my daughter always gets a Challah mouse (so cute and yummy).
      The breads are amazing as well as the preztels and sweets. They bake bread for Google, so a large order shouldn't be a problem.

      FatApple's in Berkeley and El Cerrito has seasonal German items. It is a mainly American Bakery but mught be able to bake up what you would like.

      Michael Mischner Chocolates in Oakland has a few German baked goods occasionally. Mischner, who was born and trained in Germany had his own bakery in Alemeda prior to opening the chocolate shop. Never tried the bakery, though tried his wonderful princess cakes at another bakery. Any baked good I've had at the chocolate shop has been memorably good.

          On the peninsula there's Sterntaler Bakery in San Carlos:

          They bring great products and service to our farmer's market.

            I second Sterntaler Bakery for a really good German bakery for breads, pretzels and cakes (especially their Stollen - yumm). I think they are based in San Carlos.
