baby shower cake

Hello, fellow Chicago cowhounds....I'm hosting a baby shower in your fair city for a very special friend who needs a very special cake...since I live in NYC, I don't know too much about the fabulous cake spots in Chicago and need some advice. In NYC, my favorite bakery is www.blackhound.com. They make absolutely beautiful cakes with minimal tasteful decoration and use the finest buttercream and chocolate...this is the kind of thing I'm looking for. Can anyone provide comparables? I've been told about Ferrara Pan, but the one in NYC is really really average. Another rec. was Dessert Gourmet, but it seems they are in the wedding cake business. Other Chowhound recs are Taste of Heaven on N. Clark in Andersonville, St. Anna Bakery on the west side of Chinatown Square, Sweet Thang, www.thecakegirls.com, Red Hen Bakery, www.swedishbakery.com, Rolf's Patisserie in Lincolnwood, Vanille Patesserie, and Dinkel's. Which one is the best for a sophisticated baby shower?
