Bakery for a party cake near Santa Rosa

Request for recommendations: We are having a semi-catered anniversary party for 20-30 folks and need a quality cake. Considerations include budget and timing - 2 day turnaround required.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Perhaps the most beautiful and tasty cakes I've seen near Santa Rosa are those of Patisserie Angelica, in Sebastopol.

    Worth the small amount of extra time to drive due west of Santa Rosa.


    Just scrolled through the site, and it seems heavy on wedding cakes, but the chocolate cakes and other wonders available in the retail store and to order are worth seeking out, IMO.

    See more of the non-wedding cakes here:

    Made with antibiotic-free eggs only 48 hours old, fresh local rBST free dairy, cane sugar, sea salt, fresh butter, no trans fats. French, Belgian and artisan chocolates. No preservatives, artificial flavors or colors.

    Next door to Larry Vito’s BBQ Smokehouse Bistro and Catering.

      yes! Patisserie Angelica is the BEST!

        Especially love the Gateau Parisien, which is also gluten-free.

        Served it for Scorpio birthday celebrants and those new to this delicacy went bonkers. Not listed on the online menu, I've also been to parties where the cakes are made in individual serving size rounds. But I will say that they individual size ones are just a little too large after a long meal even for as light a concoction as this. I help everyone else polish off theirs at the table and then wrap mine to take home! The buttercream and light as air macaron layers are even better the next day.

      2. Thanks for the input folks. Pressed for time, we went with Oliver's and got a half-sheet black and white mousse cake for $90ish. Design was attractive, service was friendly and the crowd was pleased with the result.
