German Chocolate Cake in Lincoln/Roseville

I'm in charge of getting a German Chocolate Cake for a birthday on Saturday. I live in the Bay Area and don't know what bakeries are good in Lincoln/Roseville area. Any suggestions of bakeries I can call to order a cake? Should I just go with Whole Foods?

    Costco cakes always get rave reviews. See what they have online. They are really good.

      Costco cakes are aweful in terms of a good baked item! The frosting is so thick and full of lard, and leaves a film on the roof of your mouth. They are inexpensive, but the quality is lacking.

      What about going to Freeport Bakery here in Sacramento on your way up? Nice bakery with good cakes. Check out the website. www.freeportbakery.com

        2nd Freeport BIG TIME! Awesome, nay, PHENOMENAL cakes! I've had the German chocolate and it is rich, indulgent, and good that I always go for two slices. I would suggest pre-ordering ahead of time.

          A third overwhelming vote for Freeport Bakery.
          Their cakes are amazing. You will be driving right passed there on your way to Rosevill/e/Lincoln from the Bay Area.

            I'll have to convince my husband to do the drive. How far off from 80 is it? I'm not sure how far looking at the map. Thanks.

              Not too far off of I-80. If I were you I'd take the business 80/50 and head into downtown Sacramento, get the cake, get back on Business 80 and it will connect back up w/ I-80 in Citrus Heights. Maybe 15-25 minutes extra; definitely worth it for the decadence of Freeport German Chocolate Cake.

                Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Husband not cooperative. Making the cake myself! I hope it turns out! I'll have to get there someday, sounds like a wonderful bakery.
