CAKE is a boutique style bakery with limited bookings per week to ensure perfection and personalized customer service. Our bakery creates all items fresh to order. The staff is knowledgeable and professional and we guarantee quality by using only the finest ingredients.
Our chefs, both graduates of The San Francisco Culinary Academy, have over twelve years' experience working throughout Northern California and San Diego. Their training includes many five star restaurants where they worked with numerous highly acclaimed chefs as they learned the finer aspects of blending food and art into one. Most recently, CAKE appeared on The Food Network's Cake Challenge.
Cake began in 2000 when Jen Duncan and Kimberly Gafter met. They were both out dancing and started talking. Both had years of culinary and restaurant experience and wanted to start a restaurant of their own. "We decided to start baking as a short term money making plan. Make cakes, save money, start a restaurant." They only made it to step one. "We fell in love with this business". Thus CAKE was born. When CAKE started Kimberly had a four year old son and Jen had a two year old son and another on the way. "Our kids grew up at CAKE. We never wanted to build a cake factory, we wanted to build a home". This small artisan bakery is a labor of love, everything is made to order with no freezing or fondant.
Meet Jen: "I'm inspired by gardens. I love flowers and plants, their organic qualities, the way they grow and move really shapes me and my piping techniques. Clothing and shoes fuel my creative passions as well. I see patterns, fabric, and designs and say to myself, 'That would look awesome on a cake!'. My family motivates me every day. I have a son, Abe, and a daughter, Analise and they keep me going. I love the colors red and green, the movies 'Bridesmaids' and 'Step Brothers', and local rock bands like 'Hot Snakes'."
Meet Kimberly: "I'm motivated and inspired by SNOW, amusements parks, zoos, hiking in the mountains with my son Forrest, kickboxing, charity work and community service, cooking vegan dishes with abandon, loud music and finding a cure for Autism."
"Not only are the cakes (and all other baked goods) delicious, but they are visually stunning. These girls can take any vision and translate it into an edible work of art. Awesome people, delicious flavors, beautiful cakes...you can't go wrong ordering from Cake."
