Angel Cakes is an Oakland cupcake & cake bakery serving the greater San Francisco Bay Area.

Dear Customers,

It’s with a heavy heart that we announce that Oakland baker, small business owner, social justice activist, and community member Jen Angel has been medically declared to have lost all brain function and will not regain consciousness, she passed away on February 9, 2023. You can read the full statement from her family and friends here.

In the long term, Angel Cakes will remain open, supported by Jen’s estate and staffed by the talented team that Jen built. 

Community members who wish to support the bakery can especially help through buying gift certificates and committing to long-term patronage to ensure the business can sustain itself long into the future.

Jen’s friends and family hope that the story of this last chapter of her brilliant, full, dynamic life is one focused on her commitment to community, on the care bestowed upon her and her family by the people who loved her, and on the generous and courageous role of countless health care workers and public servants who fought to preserve her life. We know Jen would not want to continue the cycle of harm by bringing state-sanctioned violence to those involved in her death or to other members of Oakland’s community.

Thanks for your understanding, and for supporting the bakery through this difficult time.
