Graduation treats, East Bay

Glencora Jun 9, 2011 10:42 AM

Has anyone seen any graduation-themed cookies, cupcakes, or even candy? I've seen cake pops online, but they're in the south bay. I'm looking for something small and tasty. Maybe a small cake, but definitely not a big, decorated Virginia Bakery style sheet cake. Please save me from having to make my own!

    I know that Teacakes bakery will do graduation themed cupcakes if you ask.

      How about getting Macarons from Feel Good Bakery in Alameda in the colors of your Graduate's school colors?

        That's an idea -- though I've never seen a maroon macaron (but I kind of enjoy saying it).

          Don't know about the quality of their cakes, but I'm sure Masse's could make something for you. I think they do a lot of customized stuff...

            Masse's cakes are delicious. I'm sure a lot of places would do it as a custom order. I'd start with my favorite bakery and work from there.

              The quality of their cakes is top notch. They usually have some graduation-themed items this time of year that you can just walk in and purchase. You could certainly order something custom as well.

                Unfortunately, their pre-made items are for Berkeley High, specifically. (The woman might have told me that over the phone.) I'm going to order something.

                I had no idea it would be impossible to find cupcakes with 2011 on them, or cap-shaped cookies. Are we too sophisticated for that? No luck at Hopkins Bakery, Toot Sweets, or Bette's. More downmarket places might have something, but i do want whatever I get to taste good.
