Schubert's Bakery

Pin It Now!

If you've never had a cake from Schubert's Bakery and you live in SF, then sorry you aren't a real SFer.  I think 9 out of 10 birthdays, graduations, baby showers, and any other type of celebrations include some type of Schubert's cake.

This place is always busy with people ordering cakes.

You don't have to buy a whole cake to enjoy Schubert's delicious and beautiful creations, you can get most of them by the slice or as mini cakes.

Swedish Princess cake at Schubert's Bakery-  2013 7x7 SF's Top 100 Eats
I was a little surprised to see the Swedish Princess cake on the 2013 7x7's The Big Eat list.  Its one of the cakes I haven't had here.  The cake to get here is their mango mousse.
Swedish Princess cake is a layered white cake of raspberry creme and kirsch custard filling wrapped in a marzipan icing.  Marzipan is usually one of those components of a cake I shy away from.  The commonly dry, pasty, too sweet, unnatural consistency is something I usually peel off the cake and push aside after a few polite nibbles.  I surprised myself by eating the whole piece of cake, marzipan and all.  Well, it shouldn't be too much of a surprise since Schubert's makes some pretty damn good cakes.  The marzipan here is delicious.  Not too sweet with a subtle almond flavor and the consistency is chewy.  The cake is fluffy and light like all their other cakes I've had.  The Swedish Princess cake is good, but it doesn't top their mango mousse cake.

The tiramisu cake is one of the cakes you can get as a mini cake.  One of things that makes Schubert's popular is all the cakes are sweet, but not too sweet.
