The Solvang Bakery is a family owned boutique bakery located in Solvang California, the Danish capital of America!
We specialize in custom wedding cakes, birthday cakes, iced cookies, cookie decorating kits, and Danish American desserts for every occasion!
Most of all, The Solvang Bakery is well known for custom gingerbread houses and creations. Our colorful, delicious gingerbread recipe was developed by our founder, Susan Halme, and has been a source of holiday joy for over 30 years. Our creative team takes gingerbread to the next level, making everything from a quaint Christmas Cottage to a giant Gingerbread Estate complete with lights and fireplace.
A favorite among the Kardashians, Rosanna Pansino, and Kelly Ripa, we have been featured on the Ellen Show and Hallmark's Home and Family.

Founder, Susan Halme
In 1981 Susan Halme opened the doors to a delicious bakery, founded on her father’s homemade pie recipes and her Finnish mother-in-law’s cardamom bread. An artist at heart, Susan is the heart of the bakery and can be found day after day creating beautiful, handmade, edible creations.
