I have several birthdays coming up that will require beautiful and delicious cakes to serve 10-12. I've gone to Takes the Cake the last few times and I just don't think the final product has been very sophisticated. I want these cakes to be a "wow." Can anyone help me find a new bakery? I want something more than plain frosting w/fresh flowers on top.
I've used Portos & Federico's for cakes for office parties but I want something more inventive. People have recommended Gelson's but am not sure if I'd be working w/a baker rather than choosing from a book. I love EuroPane for b'fast and I'm sure their cakes are yummy but would the designs be of a SLJ or Rosebud caliber?
I'd love to find something in the Pasadena area (Altadena, Sierra Madre, Glendale ok) as I'll be pressed for time and would love not to drive far. Thanks so much.
