During the novel coronavirus pandemic, Austinites will still celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other similar special occasions while holed up at home. To mark these occasions, people can bring home really great cakes from local bakeries and restaurants.

Eater put together this guide of the best cake sources found in Austin right now, available for pickups and deliveries. Some offer customized cakes with advanced notices, others offer ready-made cakes. One even offers a decorate-your-own cake setup (thank you, Sugar Mama’s).

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each bakery is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the bakeries themselves.

For more general takeout options, scope out Eater Austin’s takeout and delivery package and the running guide, as well as the ongoing restaurants with pop-up markets list.

A number of Austin restaurants have resumed dine-in service. That level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
