We are delighted to finally answer the frequently asked question, “Are you going to open a store front soon?” with a big “YES, WE ARE!”  An opportunity presented itself to open a retail store and continue our wholesale baking within the same building, and we jumped on it!  We plan to open this spring/summer 2019 in the old Hilda’s Bakery at 1102 Lincoln Way in Auburn. We can’t wait to be a part of your daily routine and interact with our amazing customers every day! Our vision will hold true: to provide our community with high quality artisan foods, and now we get to expand that vision to include a full-service bakery and café.

Imagine a place you can come see familiar faces, sip locally roasted coffee with a hot cinnamon roll (right out of the oven!) and later swing by for fresh sandwiches on amazing crusty bread with a cup of soup or a vibrant salad for lunch. Our vision is to offer a full line of house made pastries- think fresh hot croissants, (caution, hot croissant butter will burn your tongue, let them cool at least a minute, I know…), an endless supply of scones, muffins, cardamom spice snails, cookies of all kinds, cupcakes, fresh fruit tarts, rustic baked tarts and so much more.  And for snack time? Since our travels in Europe, we love a fresh baguette smothered in good butter with a layer of thin sliced cured meat. Yes!  We will make that for you!  As well as a plethora of café items: salads (highlighting produce from local friend’s farms), soups, quick grab lunches and, of course, crusty bread.  All our sliced sandwich breads and sourdough loaves will be available daily along with dinner rolls and holiday breads.  We want to be the town bakery!

From Alice’s beginnings in the highly successful restaurants of her parents, through she and Nathan’s nearly decade long endeavor owning this prolific and well-respected bakery, we are well prepared and excited to expand our business to include more of the things we are passionate about: food!  

From the outset, we have spent most of our time and energy perfecting the ‘baker’ aspect of The Baker and The Cakemaker.  We feel, and our community agrees, that we have mastered our bread game and are ready to include “cakemaker” as an equally fruitful aspect of our business, offering cakes for celebrations and for ‘just because’ occasions.  A few of our most popular cakes include Meyer lemon cake (piled high with toasted meringue), triple chocolate cake (coated in dark chocolate fudge frosting), and an original: cardamom spice cake (with honey and toasted pistachios).   Our new location will allow us to expand in this area.

The Baker and the Cakemaker has been baking your bread fresh for nine years now, expanding our deliveries through-out Placer, Sacramento, Nevada, and El Dorado counties.  We see this new growth as a way to keep the baking we do creative and interesting for ourselves and our amazing staff.  Not only that, we will be generating new jobs in this community and offering unique avenues of nourishment to our customers through thoughtful, farm-fresh offerings. We have worked hard and feel grateful to have the opportunity to offer our dream to the community, and while we are well on our way, we are hoping to garner your support to push us over the finish line. We have set up a crowd funding campaign to raise the final funds necessary to complete the remodel and get the doors open.  If you are able, and you are as excited as we are about being your favorite bakery, please consider donating a few dollars.  We are forever thankful.
