    Call Sweet Petitie and ask if she can make one. ANYTHING she makes is great.

      I haven't had it myself, but I've heard Crixa makes a good coconut cake.

          I'd get to Neldam's pretty soon. It doesn't look good: http://www.contracostatimes.com/bay-a...

          Market Hall bakery has coconut cake -- it is decent, but not spectacular. When I was looking for one in January, I ended up getting a different cake from Crixa that was wonderful. Next time I plan on getting the coconut cake from Crixa.

          The best coconut cake I have found is at, of all places, Somerset at Rockridge. I can't recommend anything else there. In fact, I wouldn't go there at all. But you might want to see if they will sell you a whole cake because it is wonderful.

            After careful "research", some friends declared a winner:

            Marita's Sweet Potato Pie company in San Leandro.

              I just had amazing coconut cupcakes from Teacake in Emeryville. Perhaps those would do?

                Katrina Rozelle on College in Oakland makes a very good coconut cake, although I like their chocolate ganache cakes even more.
