SilverSpoon Bakery is a dessert bakery focused on delighting our customers with artisanal, beautiful, and high quality cakes and desserts.
Located in the heart of Portsmouth, Va., SilverSpoon Bakery and Gourmet Gifts, have been the staple for many events. From custom cakes to dessert tables, customers have been delighted for over 10 years.
C.C. Martinez, the owner of SilverSpoon, developed a passion for baking every since the Easy Bake Oven. She honed her skills at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York, under Toba Garrett and the culinary program at Tidewater Community College in Norfolk, Virgina.
This childhood passion led her to the opening of SilverSpoon Bakery & Gourmet Gifts in 2005. Her dream of owning "just" a custom cake shop was halted when she was asked to enter a local cookie contest three days before the initial opening, and won! Patrons sought out this" Best Kept Secret", and have returned for various confections such as sugar babies, her signature lemon pound cake, and chocolate bacon,
Her dedication is reflected in the numerous awards SilverSpoon has won over the years and her continued study of her craft.

Every order designed by SilverSpoon is custom. Why, because we make sure it fits your needs. Based on the number of guest being served, to the colors and design, we work with each client to ensure that we create a custom and beautiful cake for your special day. SilverSpoon Bakery will provide you with an amazing cake that tastes as good as it looks!
Getting the cake of your dreams is simple and low-stress.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
- Schedule a Tasting+Consultation -Consults are available Tuesday- Friday from 11 am -5 pm. A non-refundable fee of $25.00 will be charged at that time, and applied to the total cost of the cake if services are retained. (Please restrict tasting to 4 people). You will then have the opportunity to savor 6-8 of our most popular flavors. Any special request must be made prior to the appointment and may incur an additional charge.
- Design- During your consultation, one of our designers will assist you in bringing your imagination to life, by incorporating elements from your event, such as monograms, logos, custom color, and texture. Please bring swatches, invitations, and pictures with you that will help us in getting a clear picture of your event.
- Reserve- Once we have your stamp of approval on design and taste, A non- refundable retainer equaling 1/3 of the total cost is required at contract signing to reserve your creation. ( If over $500. If less, half is required). Balance is required two (2) weeks before the event.
