Salty Tart Bakery, Minneapolis
I love Michelle Gayer and order every special-occasion cake from her 400-square-foot bakery, Salty Tart. She does a lot more than cakes—savory baked goods, breads and my personal favorite, coconut macaroons. saltytart.com.

Tartine Bakery & Café, San Francisco
Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson are both incredibly talented chefs, but together they’re a culinary power couple. If you try only one thing at their bakery, go for the bread pudding. It’s fantastic. tartinebakery.com.
