When you’re bakers, you wait with great anticipation for two events: watching customers see your creation for the first time; and observing their reaction when they take that first bite.    At The Solvang Bakery, it doesn’t matter whether we’re handing a child a colorful hand-iced cookie in our store, or whether we’re delivering an exquisite wedding cake to a celebrity, our goal is to delight our customers visually and sensorially.  Fortunately, we’ve been blessed with wonderful feedback and reviews…enjoy!

I will make sure that you are my “go to” bakers when I am up that way and will definitely refer you out at every opportunity. A million thank you’s would still not be enough to show my appreciation.”
