Donsuemor is celebrating 40 years of specialty baked goods.


We recently celebrated our 40th year of creating sweet, petite and unique European inspired specialty baked goods. 40 years of anything is a great achievement, but to still be able to create delicious, decadent treats for people to enjoy is astounding and we are truly thankful for your continued support. It is an honor to think this great cookie adventure started in a kitchen in the gourmet ghetto of Berkeley, California back in 1976 during the birth of the American food movement.

After 40 years, we still focus on high quality, tightly controlled smaller batches using only premium ingredients to bring you the best products available. Donsuemor was the first American manufacturer to create and sell madeleines to retailers and we have officially thrilled the taste buds of three generations of Donsuemor madeleine lovers. Our birthday celebration continues throughout the year with our monthly tea party sponsorship partnering with Davidson’s Tea, also celebrating their 40 year anniversary. In addition, we are connecting with local bakers who are helping us celebrate by creating their own inspirational birthday cakes and desserts using Donsuemor products.

In 40 years, we have grown from a small home kitchen to a larger bakery in Alameda, California. Yet, we still adhere to our simple golden rule of attention to quality and detail in every batch – some things never change. Please follow us on Facebook for the latest celebration posts and exciting giveaways.
