About

Ever since we started Nerdache Cakes, a tumblr blog running on cake requests in 2011, we've been asked where our store is located. Now we are ready to provide our fellow geeks a place of their own.

Nerdache Cakes Bakery + Café, where you can get awesome, level-up inducing treats that are decadent, fun, and a nod to your favorite icons in pop culture nerd-ery!

Whether it's perfectly replicating nerdy icons in cake, cookies or cupcakes, all of our customers keep finding reasons to come back for more. And with your help, we can bring nerd cake everyone in an interactive bakery environment that's geeky, fun and easy to enjoy a cup of coffee or blended smoothie in!

Why a Bakery Now?

After 3 years of building Nerdache Cakes- from piping cupcakes in a corner in my kitchen to making 6 tier cakes for geek weddings, I've outgrown my tiny space. This bakery would be built from years of work done just by myself, to a team of people ready to make your geekiest sweets come true!

Risks and challenges

We have diligently put strategic thought into everything that goes into this bakery. The Promise?
