German choc cake in Oakland/Berkeley?

hi. A friend needs a German Chocolate cake in the Oakland/Berkeley area. Prefer not It's All Good. Thanks.

  1. That's a surprisingly rare item.

    Neldams used to make it, you might try their successor, A Taste of Denmark.

    Braxtons' Boxes, delivery only:

      German Chocolate cake is rare?....Just about every Safeway in Nor-cal makes them?

      They even sell slices.

      However,It's certainly is not the best GCC I have ever had by any means.

      1. re: Mission

        Right, it's probably worse than It's All Good's, which is why I didn't mention it.

        I rarely see German chocolate among the cakes I see in bakeries. The worse the bakery, the more likely they are to have it.

    2. Montclair Baking also has them. I'd order one if you want to make sure they have it. I'm ordering another cake from the bakery for a party but getting a couple German Chocolate cakes from my sister-in-laws' mom. Glad to hear they are still somewhat popular.

      1. You can also try Feel Good Bakery in Alameda

        I would also think that bakeries in Whole Foods, etc might have it

        1. re: Scott M

          i am eating the Whole Foods version right now. It is really a devil's food cake with the pecan coconut caramel filling. It is 't hitting the spot which is why I checked this thread. I like the old time type with the lighter cake. I will try the Toot Sweets version.

            Second Feel Good bakery in Alameda, although they don't always have it (sometimes they have slices, and sometimes they have cupcakes). They use good quality ingredients.

        2. I wonder if it's something that Katrina Rozelle makes?

          1. My mom likes the mini versions that they make at Toot Sweets (name?) on Gilman in Berkeley/Albany.
