These Orange County bakeries offer the normal treats, but with an added kick.

1. Aj’s Primal Eatery in Orange County


Aj’s is a catering business that doubles as a cake service, and some cakes they are! You can literally order the figure of a bikini babe as your birthday cake with this custom bakery. Don’t worry, they also specialize in more traditional cakes that are appropriate for younger audiences.

2. Blackmarket Bakery in Costa Mesa and Santa Ana


Located at ‘The Camp’ in Costa Mesa and in Downtown Santa Ana, this bakery got some love when it was featured by Travel Costa Mesa and Foodbeast. Seriously, look up their Whoopie Pie Dessert Slider!

They offer a variety of cookies, tarts and cakes, but it’s their sundaes that steal the show. Take the ‘Hipster’ sundae for example: a Classic Two-Tone Cookie with Peanut Butter, Bacon, Chocolate Ganache, and Vanilla Ice Cream. Yup, they use bacon in their desserts, and you just found your new favorite spot. You’re welcome.
