About Us

A slice of history

Let 'em Eat Cake was originally established in 1987 by Anne Pickens out of her home in Middletown, CA. She had a passion for making beautiful and delicious cakes, which led her to attend the Wilton School of Cake Decorating in Illinois where she honed her skills and with the help of her husband Bruce and her daughter's Dawn and Sara she opened the first stand alone incarnation of Let 'em Eat Cake in Smithfield, Utah in 1990. The family later returned to California and in 2005 Sara took over the business.

As a child Sara observed her mother and helped in the first shop but is primarily self taught and has a more modern and adventurous approach to cake decorating.

Since 2005 Sara has built a  new customer base California and opened her own shop in 2009.

Let'em Eat Cake has thrived in the Bay Area and participated in several cupcake challenges and was voted #4 on Bay Area's A-List out of all of the bakeries in the area.

We have been the judge for Livermore Library and their summer reading and cupcake challenge and have been proud sponsors of local charities, hospitals and teams and look forward to being a part of and serving the community for years to come!
