I was really sad when I passed the shuttered storefront of That Takes the Cake on Union Street in Cow Hollow. I trudged uphill on Fillmore Street and got glad again when I discovered Sift.
Sift is a new cupcakery on California St @ Fillmore in Pacific Heights.
I was intrigued by the Stud Muffin, a beer batter cake with a bacon topper. Yum!
While I'll miss That Takes the Cake (they've moved to the East Bay), at least there is a nice alternative in the area when a cupcake craving comes calling.
