Pastry logo design has a long and rich history that can be traced back to the origins of bakeries and pastry shops, which have been around for centuries. In the early days, these businesses relied primarily on word-of-mouth marketing and the quality of their baked goods to attract customers. However, as competition increased, bakers and pastry chefs began to develop unique branding and visual identities to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
In the decades that followed, pastry logo design continued to evolve, reflecting changing trends in design and marketing. In the 1960s and 1970s, for example, many pastry logos featured bold, psychedelic colors and abstract shapes that reflected the countercultural spirit of the era. By the 1980s and 1990s, however, a more minimalist and refined aesthetic began to emerge, reflecting a growing interest in health and wellness.
Today, pastry logo design encompasses a wide range of styles and aesthetics, from traditional and classic to modern and minimalist. Some pastry logos rely on the imagery of baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, and cookies, while others feature utensils like rolling pins, whisks, and pastry bags. Other potential design elements include depictions of ingredients like flour, sugar, and butter, as well as kitchen-related imagery such as mixing bowls and aprons.
Here are some of the best pastry logo design ideas you can reference:
1. HIJA DEL PAN
Created by FLOR DE HIELO | https://www.behance.net/gallery/150281275/HIJA-DEL-PAN
If your brand happens to have a distinct name, consider using it as the logo's main part. The words "Hija" and "Pan" are mostly written normally. The only exception is the word "del", which is written in italics. In addition to that, the typeface is easy to read and more on the playful side. The font is perfect for the pastry shop.
2. Croissant Café & Bakery

Another important element of a bread and pastry logo design is the layout. That is the alignment of the text and symbol. It could be horizontal, where the symbol and text are placed side by side, like the Croissant Café & Bakery's logo here. As for the alignment of the text, it could be right-aligned, left-aligned, centered, as well as stacked.
3. ANNA THIERRY

When you are creating a pastry logo design, the best practice is to focus on the concept and shape first. Picking the right colors is surely important. However, your logo should look good regardless of its colors. Notice how it comes in a variety of colors. It looks awesome in all colors. So, make sure to focus on the concept and shape first.
4. A Guy & His Pie
Created by Daniel Sheridan | https://dribbble.com/shots/20623349-A-Guy-His-Pie-Brand-Kit
A lot of pastry logos on the list feature text in uppercase. The uppercase text makes a logo look more authoritative. Uppercase is associated with being dependable, too. The text suits the brand's personality. The same goes for the colors. Look at the A Guy & His Pie colors. The black background highlights the tiger and text, making them more noticeable.
5. Goody Vegan bakery cafe

When it comes to a pastry logo design, you want to limit the number of colors you use. Unless you are an expert logo designer, it is best to keep the number to a minimum. Too many can be overwhelming. Goody Vegan Bakery Café's logo involves minimal colors, but it easily draws attention. The rhyming slogan is the cherry on top.
6. Bluebeard Bakery

Always keep in mind that your pastry logo design will be used across media. Here's the thing: a design might do wonders on one media but not so much on another. The solution is to create a variety of your logo. For example, you can switch the text arrangement like Bluebeard Bakery's logos. A few variations like these make the logo more flexible.
7. Art'n Bread
Created by Cansu Merdamert | https://dribbble.com/shots/11729869-Art-n-Bread-Logo
Colorful designs may look interesting. But for a pastry logo design, you want to keep it at a minimum. Even 1 to 2 colors are enough to make a good logo. Art'N features only two colors: white and orange. The overall design is on the simpler side. But, despite lacking intricate details, the design is appetite-stimulating. Plus, it is also easy to recognize.
8. Panela De Ferro
Created by Felipe Polo | https://www.behance.net/gallery/136147005/Panela-De-Ferro
Panela de Ferro uses a stylized brand name. Notice how the "P" and "F" intertwine. This quirky styling creates a visual cue that the audience can't just ignore. What's more, the text, symbol, and background have contrasting colors. This allows the text and symbol to stand out further. Since the logo includes some details, the audience can learn what it is about.
9. Borland Bakery
Created by WIDARTO IMPACT | https://www.behance.net/gallery/109969893/Borland-Bakery-Branding
Not all pastry shops need a graphic in their logo. Sometimes text-only is enough. Borland uses such a logo. It has no graphics. What it has is a stylized brand name. It exhibits elegance and is still easy on the eye. Although the letters are placed close to each other, you won't have any trouble reading them. The text and background balance each other.
10. Northstar Macarons
Created by Tessa Portuese| https://dribbble.com/shots/20136491-Northstar-Macarons
Ideally, you want multiple versions of your pastry logo design. This is to anticipate using the logo across platforms. It is the face of your brand, so most likely, it will happen. The Northstar Macarons's logo comes in three versions: large, medium, and small. The smaller the logo, the fewer details it has. Still, all three of them represent the brand very well.
11. Andor Bakery & Coffee
Created by mmpx inc| https://www.behance.net/gallery/137349115/Andor-Bakery-Coffee-Brand-Identity
If the name of your pastry shop happens to be short, using the horizontal layout can be a good idea. Doing so will make it easy for people to read it. You will need to make it unique, though. Andor Bakery & Coffee does it by dividing the letter "O" into two. The result is an easy-to-read wordmark that stands out.
12. Saltadena Bakery & Cake Shop
Created by Cameron Jennings | https://dribbble.com/shots/9104162-Saltadena-Bakery-Cake-Shop
Looking for ideas for what kind of symbol to use in your pastry logo design? Don't look too far. Look no further than your pastry shop's name. Saltadena Bakery & Cake Shop uses the first letter of the business name as its symbol. The colors of the logo are minimal, with two primary colors (white and brown) and one accent.
13. The Croissant
Created by Ashleigh Brewer | https://dribbble.com/shots/5910113-Croissant
It can be tempting to follow the trends, especially when it comes to colors. But what you want is a pastry logo that stays relevant for years to come. One way to futureproof your design is to go with the classic black and white. The contrast allows the text and symbol to draw attention. The black background allows the white part to shine.
14. Cascadia Crumbs
Created by Katrin Emery | https://dribbble.com/shots/18137086-Cascadia-Crumbs-branding-logo-design
Ideally, a logo design pastry is simple. The simpler the pastry logo, the more effective it will be. You want your audience to remember and recognize it. A simple logo makes it easier for them to do so. Cascadia Crumb's consists of white outlines on a teal background. The logo depicts eaten bread on a plate, a fitting image for a pastry shop.
15. Tradycyjna Piekarnia
Created by Igor Kapustin | https://dribbble.com/shots/13696937-Logo-Design-for-Tradycyjna-Piekarnia
You can use any item related to pastries as a symbol in your pastry logo design. Tradycyjna Piekarnia uses a rolling pin. It is a silhouette but is enough to represent the pastry shop. Notice the typeface. The brand's name is written in a serif font. This conveys the professionalism and trustworthiness of the brand. It is simple, but it delivers the message.
16. Tart Damned
Created by Ilia Semchenko | https://dribbble.com/shots/14677958-Tart-Damned
A mascot is a great way to connect with your target audience. This is especially true if the mascot of your brand is unique and distinctive. Tart Damned has such a mascot. It also uses only three colors: deep purple, light brown, and white. So, not only is the logo memorable and approachable, but it is also simple enough to memorize and recognize.
Created by Jeroen van Eerden | https://dribbble.com/shots/4803210-Bakeritie-Logo-Proposal
A good pastry logo design is versatile. You can use it across platforms, on the web, or in print. That said, having multiple variations of a pastry logo is not a bad idea, either. With different variations, you can employ whichever fits the occasion. Bakerieti has two: the black variant and the red variant. Their colors differ, but they both fit the brand's personality.
Created by Ksenia Kumorizz | https://www.behance.net/gallery/162258479/MOLENdutch-pastry-IDENTITY
If your brand happens to have a unique name, you might want to use it on your logo. Molen's logo is a nice example of such a logo. On the one hand, it is written in a serif font, a font associated with professionalism and trustworthiness. On the other, it has its own twists with the diagonal line above the "O" and the unique "E".
19. Butter & Crumbs
Created by Emir Kudic | https://dribbble.com/shots/18413762-Butter-Crumbs-Bakery-Branding-Design
A logo that includes both a symbol and text is known as a combination mark. It has more details, but when it is well-designed, it can be an excellent representation of a brand. Butter & Crumb's logo, for example, incorporates a "B" as its symbol. The symbol is surrounded by the brand's name and its slogan. People can't help but associate them.
Created by Aala Khlaief | https://www.behance.net/gallery/162467467/Ambrosia-Bakery-coffee-shop-Branding
The Ambrosia's logo is amazing in more ways than one. The pastry logo design features a beautiful graphic with only white outlines. In addition, it uses black and white, a classic color combination that stood the test of time. With these elements, the logo can stay relevant for many years to come. Notice how the logo includes only its slogan and not its name.
21. Emir Kudic
Created by Emir Kudic | https://dribbble.com/shots/19270349-Bakery-Logo-Design
Familiar shapes convey certain messages. However, if you want to convey your brand's unique personality, an abstract pastry logo design is your best option. An abstract logo doesn't just allow your brand to stand out from competitors. It also makes it a lot easier for people to recognize it as it is the one and only. The logo is yours and yours only.
Created by Fabrício Auler | https://www.behance.net/gallery/162597993/Videira
Green is a fresh color. And what color is better to represent the freshness of your pastries than it? Videira employs the color green and makes it memorable. The green background is vibrant. It is dark enough to allow for the white text to stand out and make a statement. Notice how stylish the text is. The white outline draws attention to what's inside.
23. Blue Mountain Bakery
Created by Jeroen van Eerden | https://dribbble.com/shots/20466942-Blue-Mountain-Bakery-Logo-Design
While a short name makes an awesome logo, it doesn't mean you can't use a long name. If properly aligned, a long name can make an awesome pasty logo design, too. Take the Blue Mountain Bakery's logo, for example. It includes the brand's whole name. It also features two lines, one blue and one brown. These small details make it more appealing.
24. Forno Mariani

Next, Forno Mariani. If you don't know what color to use in your logo, just use white. White is a neutral color, but it stands out with elegance. This is especially true if the background provides a good contrast. Forno Mariani's logo does that and more. Notice the styling of the letters. The font is rather quirky, and it suits the brand's personality.
25. Magnolia Bakery
Created by Simon Walker | https://dribbble.com/shots/18130519-Magnolia-Bakery
You don't need contrasting colors to make your pastry logo design noticeable. Even different shades of the same color can work, too. Look at Magnolia Bakery's logo. Rather than using opposite colors, it uses darker and lighter shades of green. The contrast is on the softer side, but it is enough to highlight the logo. The stylized "M" is the cherry on top.
26. Mélimélo Bakery
Created by Daniela Arcila | https://www.behance.net/gallery/62904439/Mlimlo-Bakery
It is easy to overlook whitespace when designing a logo. Whitespace is just as important as the details that you include in a logo. Melimelo Bakery's proves how amazing a pastry logo design can be when whitespace is kept in mind. Not only it forms text and patterns, but it also prevents overcrowding. There are lots of patterns, but it doesn't feel cramped.
Created by Ilya Gorchanyuk | https://www.behance.net/gallery/96930729/Boulangerie
The symbol of Boulangerie is quite interesting. You can see a wheat plant and a silhouette of a slice of bread. The subtle symbolism gives another layer of meaning to the logo. It is designed with minimalism in mind. Notice the lack of intricate details and colors. There are only three colors, but we all can agree that the logo leaves a positive impression.
28. A Fresh Tart Pies Bakery
Created by Design by Ayelet | https://dribbble.com/shots/17403337-A-Fresh-Tart-Pies-Bakery-Branding-Logo-Design-Pie-Icon-2
Always keep in mind the elements in your pasty logo design. You want to include what's important. You also want to arrange the elements properly.

This is why having multiple versions of a logo is important.
29. Herbert Adams Chilled Pies
Created by Brand Society | https://www.behance.net/gallery/36374343/Herbert-Adams-Chilled-Pies
When designing a logo, make sure it conveys what your brand is all about. The Herbert Adams Chilled Pies' logo does exactly that.

30. Felicidad Bakery
Created by invade design | https://www.behance.net/gallery/108963571/Felicidad-Bakery
Last but not least, the Felicidad Bakery's logo. The logo effortlessly leaves a positive impression. Just look how the "I", "C", and "I" are styled.
