Pricing FAQs

There are three variables which determine the price of a cake:

  • The number of people it will serve (its size)
  • The flavor of the cake and its filling
  • The complexity of the design

The smallest cake that we can draw on is an 8-inch round, serving 10-12 people.

Cutting out a cake to a special shape adds at least an additional $20 to its price because of the extra labor involved.

Experience has taught us that some fillings and frostings work better than others, preventing problems with slippage on certain cake styles.

Choosing certain styles can limit your selection of either cake, filling or frosting flavors.

Visit our bakery to view our extensive cake design albums or bring your own "kreative" idea.

Our staff will be happy to assist you with design ideas and advice to fit your budget. We are here to offer you the most distinctive and delicious cake available.

Kathy's French Wine Cake

This is such a special cake – close to my heart.

Wine CakeMy mentor and friend Mary Sangueniti gave me the recipe when I opened my bakery in 1976. As a gift Mary was the original owner Starlight Bakery in San Mateo. She lived right across the street from her bakery and I lived around the corner on 12th Avenue.

I had six kids and we would go to Starlight Bakery and buy her bread, cookies, St. Honore Cakes and talked to Mary who loved everyone.

When I opened my own bakery in 1976, Mary thought I should have at least one item that I could offer my customers that didn’t have to be pre-ordered. Since all my cakes are made to order, I didn’t have anything to buy while they were in my bakery.

Not only did Mary Sangueniti give me the recipe for Wine Cake, she thought I should have an awning over my front door so people driving on “B” Street would be able to find me. An awning in 1976 was $500.00 and beyond my budget.

Next thing I know, the awning company was installing an awning. The installers told me a “little gray haired lady” paid for the awning with five $100.00 bills.

Mary passed away and I miss her so much – but she lives on with the Wine Cake.
