Update: The Cake Gallery reached out and said they decided not to close permanently after all, and are now looking for another place in San Francisco! Maybe our collective outpouring of love for them made a difference. It happened before with Costumes on Haight. We will let you know if and when they find a new home.

After 38 years serving naughty and delicious cakes, the Cake Gallery in SoMa has shut down.

I saw the news yesterday when Marke Bieschke posted the below photo on his Facebook page.

This is obviously a big bummer because it’s one less weird and funky thing in San Francisco. That said, I imagine it’s hard to keep a cake shop open when nobody has been throwing parties for over 6 months.

I was lucky enough to have cakes from the Cake Shop bought for me for my birthday twice!

Here’s the one my exgf Ashley got for me in 2015, back when I was doing The Kinda Late Show:

And just last year my fiancé Kayla got me this awesome one made from a photo of me:

But here’s the really amazing stuff that we will no longer have access to now that the Cake Shop is closed. Below are some incredible X-rated cakes from their website:
