Frosted Cake Shop, Sacramento


A child’s first birthday is a pretty big deal…especially for Mom! I must admit, I’ve been planning my son’s first birthday for about 10 months, so when the big day was nearly here, I threw on my event planning hat and went to work. First order of business was the theme, and there was no question it had to be a Special Agent Oso party. To say my son loves Oso would be a vast understatement. From invitations to goodie bags, it was all Oso. So it was imperative we also have a Special Agent Oso cake as well…enter the Frosted Cake Shop.

I knew I wanted lots of color and Oso on the cake in some way, and what owner/baker extraordinaire Tessa Lindow created far surpassed our expectations. First, she made buttercream look like fondant, something I didn’t know was humanly possible. Second, she didn’t just nail the little marzipan Oso, but she created images of Dotty, Wolfie and Paw Pilot too (if you have a child under the age of three, you know exactly what I’m referring to). But the biggest surprise, and the one that literally brought a tear to my eye, was the special cake she prepared especially for my son.

I haven’t even mentioned that the cake was delicious, light and perfectly sweet – a real crowd pleaser! We ordered the Vanilla Butter cake with Chocolate Buttercream filling and can’t wait to have Tessa make us another cake because her options – including Classic Chocolate Cake with Peanut Buttercream – sound heavenly.

    Tessa’s cakes are amazing! We can not have a party without a Frosted Cake Shop cake anymore…we have had a minnie mouse cake, a turtle cake, a darling baby shower cake, a Boston Red Sox hat cake and tomorrow she is making a cake for my bridal shower (that is all within the last year)! She is also making my cousin’s Oso cake and my Fiance’s 30th birthday cake next month. She’s awesome!

    The Frosted Cake shop will forever be a family tradition. Tessa made us an amazing mini wedding cake last year. I was sure to book her 7 months in advance to create my son’s first birthday cake. Not only do her cakes look incredible but they taste amazing. We are privileged to have This amazing cake shop in Sacramento. Tessa is someone I expect to see on the Food Network or even land a book deal in the future. What she offers is a rare and incredible find.
