About

We are a local, woman-owned bakery based out of Oakland, California. We opened our doors in July of 2011. Our founder, Eurydice Manning, wanted to bring the magic back to food, one cupcake at a time. Her delicious creations are reminiscent of biting into your favorite cake as a kid; all those memories come rushing back.

We deliver all over the Bay Area, including to Napa and Sonoma. We have a variety of exciting flavors, including Strawberry Lemonade, Axel Rose, Guinness & Bailey's, Sea Salt Caramel, and so many more! We love to cater special events, including Birthdays, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, and Weddings. People love us on Yelp! and Cupcakes Take The Cake, http://cupcakestakethecake.blogspot.com/2011/02mini-cupcake-magic-from-james-and-giant.html. Visit our website at www.jamesandthegiantcupcake.com to see a list of all our flavors.

We are a unique cupcakery that creates amazing, moist cupcakes, using only the best ingredients! The result? A perfectly moist cupcake topped with fluffy frosting, that leaves you daydreaming for more. We hope you agree!

    Best gluten free wedding cake ever!

    I have been a frequent patron of James and the Giant, enjoying all their tasty gluten free sweets. When I got engaged I knew I wanted to have them make my wedding cake. Caleigh was a dream to work with. She was responsive, flexible and helpful and even provided us a tasting on the house (who would say no to free cupcakes?!!). We ended up getting a 6 layer sprinkle covered vanilla gluten free cake. All our guests couldn't believe it was gluten free! The cake looked perfect alongside donuts and our customized cake topper from Etsy. Would highly recommend. Thank you so much!

    James And The Giant Cupcake's reply:

    Thank you, Ellen! It was so lovely to work with you too! I'm very happy that everyone loved the cake ... sometimes we have to trick our non-gluten free friends and family to prove how good it can be! We look forward to meeting all of your cake needs in the future (1st anniversary perhaps?). Thanks again!

    James and The Giant Cupcake is magnificent. I couldn't have selected a better Bakery. We ordered over 300 cupcakes and they came and set them up. It was absolutely beautiful not to mention extremely tasty. The chocolate cupcakes were the biggest hit... super moist! I love James and the Giant Cupcake and I highly recommend using them for any special event or just to satisfy a sweet tooth craving.
