Freeport Bakery: A Land Park Treasure Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary


 Over the past several years, Sacramento has seen the opening of several delightful new bakeries, including Estelle’s Patisserie, Sugar and Spice Specialty Desserts and TreyBcakes. And while I enjoy visiting these establishments occasionally, Freeport Bakery in Land Park remains my go-to bake shop when I need flavorful, beautifully-crafted desserts. This cozy, friendly neighborhood treasure is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, so I suggest you pop in soon to try its famous cakes (don’t miss the ultra-chocolate Blackout cake or the Champagne cake – golden buttermilk cake layers sprinkled with Champagne, filled with strawberry custard mousse and frosted in pale pink buttercream); the cookies (I love the Mexican wedding cake cookies) and the kitchen’s scrumptious quiches and potato knishes.
