The Mixing Bowl Richmond

The Mixing Bowl Richmond Specializing in wedding & specialty cakes, wholesale goods including full sized cakes and small bake Since moving, we have also become a fully Kosher bakery.

Founded in 1926, The Mixing Bowl remains family owned and operated. Specializing in wedding and all occasion cakes, if you dream it we can bake it. We also provide small goods, pies, everyday cakes, and breads. We have since moved from our little brick cottage on West Broad Street to the Westbury Shopping Center on Three Chopt Road.

Operating as usual

Today we highlight an absolute institution in Richmond for this week's !

The Mixing Bowl Richmond has been apart of the RVA landscape since 1926. That's almost 100 years in the business! They have made countless confections for all occasions and offer an array of delicious desserts daily to satisfy any and all sweet tooth needs!

We cannot count how many weddings and events we've planned that have included The Mixing Bowl Bakery in their big day. They pride themselves on channeling their passion for desserts and their love for their community into each and every item they make. And it shows!

We cannot say enough great things about this powerhouse of a bakery so if you're looking for sweet treats for your party, we highly recommend checking The Mixing Bowl Bakery out!

Happy pi(e) day from your friends at Boomtown. Celebrate the day right by grabbing a treat from some of our sweetest partners, like Susie's Little Bake Shop, The Mixing Bowl Richmond, & Copy Cat Cakes, over at the Boomtown Radio Shopping Show!
When Laura and Ryan visited this stunning historic wedding venue in Richmond, they knew it was to be where they would have their wedding celebration. With its elegant and romantic landscape, variety of wide open spaces, and Laura's love of burgundy red for a wedding color, it would be the perfect backdrop for their classic pandemic-affected wedding. ❤

We're kicking off this week with a delicious ! The Mixing Bowl Richmond has been a favorite neighborhood bakery since 1926. They churn out cakes for all occasions, as well as small baked goods for those days that you just need something sweet in your life. Their motto? "If you can dream it, we can bake it." No wonder so many of our couples choose them to make their big day that much sweeter.
