About Us

Nancy's Fancies has been baking customized desserts since 1978. The idea of getting the cake of your dreams began when Nancy couldn't convince a baker to make her a chocolate wedding cake. Baking had always been a passion of hers. So 7 years later, Nancy started her own bakery.

During an appointment with Nancy in San Carlos we start with your bridal gown and any theme. We help you choose designs and flavors that will please you and your guests.

Our cakes are baked with fresh eggs, sweet butter, Guittard chocolate, sugar and flour. There is a large selection of cake flavors and fillings that you can choose from. Besides our signature Italian meringue buttercream, we offer 5 other frostings.

To help make your day care free, we always co-ordinate with your florist and caterer/hotel.

The personal appointments include a complimentary tasting, time to look at photo albums and talk about important details. Nancy meets with brides on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays between 9 AM and 3 PM.

Our prices start at $5.00 per person, including delivery and set up. Flower arranging is included.(Purchase flowers from your florist)
