bakery recommendation in irvine?

  • k

i'm looking for a place to get a stellar birthday cake--somewhere in irvine or orange county.

any recommendations for a great bakery or pastery shop that specializes in cakes?

  1. I recently discovered the bakery in HK market on Redhill in tustin (near the 5 freeway). They make some really beautiful, and equally delish cakes. Everytime I take one to someones home, they ask me where I got it and they too start buying them.

    1. I don't know about their cakes, but I had a nice caramel nut tart from Blackmarket Bakery (near the airport). They sell a few items at the Irvine Farmer's Market.


      1. Let Them Eat Cake on Newport Ave in CM has some really great baked goods.

        I have not yet tried their cakes, however. (They recently won $10,000 in a cake decorating contest on Food TV--to air next November.)

        1. French's bakery (several locations in OC, try the one on Culver at Walnut in Irvine, next door to Trader Joe's) is very good.

          1. I like Assal Pastry in the same plaza as Sumo on Culver and I also like J.J. Bakery next to 99 Ranch, also on Culver.
