In 2008, while living in Paris, Krista found the perfect way to merge her twin passions of art and food. She co-founded Sugarplum Cake Shop in the Fifth Arrondissement—just around the corner from the beautiful Abbey of St. Geneviève. This former French monastery, a tribute to the patron saint of Paris, serves as the namesake for Krista’s Bay Area cake bakery.
“I find inspiration everywhere that I go—in the tastes and textures, the architecture, and the palette of the places that I see”, says Krista, whose custom wedding cake designs have been featured in Vogue, Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Green Wedding Shoes and Style Me Pretty. “I try to recreate these experiences at Sainte G.”
At Sainte G. Cake Company, the inside of the cake is as important as the outside. We use only the best ingredients, such as organic dairy and local organic produce. Each cake tier is composed of three layers of cake with the filling sandwiched between. Depending on the chosen design, the cake is then iced with Swiss meringue buttercream or covered in rolled fondant frosting.
We’ve created this signature menu of six updated classics with a new focus on depth of flavor and texture. Don’t see what you are looking for? Ask if it’s available!
