Organic and All Natural Wedding Cakes – Yum!

MarryMeLive Guest Post

Swiss Delices Fine Bakery and Pastry Shop is not your usual wedding cake baker. With a staff of 6 between both their Castro Valley and Hayward locations, they offer authentic European cakes made from all natural ingredients.

Christine Clement, the founder of Swiss Delices states emphatically, “All of our cakes and icings are made from scratch using real butter, eggs and other high-quality fresh ingredients. We use only organic flour and organic or pesticide free fruits. We do not use high fructose corn syrup or shortening.” Her strong belief in high quality ingredients reaches across all her baked goods. The cake fondants are flown in from Europe where they use glucose instead of high fructose corn syrup and all her chocolate cakes contain at least 55% cocoa beans. The chefs even use vanilla bean for flavoring instead of vanilla extract.

She also buys local as much as possible by utilizing farmer markets and recommending clients to use in season fresh fruit.
But, her most popular cakes may come as no surprise – Chocolate Mousse and Lemon White Chocolate Cakes. I tried both and they were delicious!

Working with customers everyday at her bakery, she is very much in tune with what clients requests. She offers cakes that can be customized with a different cake per tier. For example, if you order a 3 tier cake – the top layer could be chocolate mouse, the middle lemon white chocolate, and the bottom tier carrot cake. For the budget conscious customer needing to serve many guests, she makes secondary sheet cakes that feed many people at a much lower cost.

But, wedding cakes are just a small portion of her Swiss bakery business. She is very much a part of the Castro Valley community serving fresh baked morning pastries to clients, soup made from scratch, and hosts weekly Wednesday play dates for children. Even if you are not looking for a wedding cake, her bakery is worth checking out.
