Two Chicks In The Mix
Where we've featured it
This Oakland and LA-based bakery specializing in exceptional fruit pies and cakes topped with fresh flowers is popping up at Oaktown Spice Shop on June 5th from 12-3pm. They’ll have cookies and treats available, as well as their special off-the-menu cherry lime pie for those who pre-ordered online by May 31st. If cherry lime pie is up your alley but you didn’t pre-order, take the “Pie Pledge” - a.k.a. sign up for their quarterly pie subscription - to get one. A pie for every season doesn’t sound like a bad idea, if you ask us.
What to get: The cake and flowers combo
Oakland-based bakery Two Chicks In The Mix does wedding cakes and other baked goods - but if you’re looking to send something that’s both thoughtful and delicious, focus on their flowers-and-cake combo. It comes with your choice of cake (lavender and earl grey, lemon olive oil, or red velvet), paired with a seasonal bouquet from Oakland’s Esscents of Flowers. Note that deliveries are only available on Saturday, and you’ll have to pre-order by Wednesday at 5pm.
Our go-to spot for delicious cakes is doing pies for Thanksgiving - butter sweet potato, pecan, and salted caramel apple. Place your order by Nov. 19th for pick-up or delivery (in Oakland only) on the 25th or 26th.
