i'm looking for a birthday cake...
birthday boy is turning ONE--1st son of the oldest son, so according to tradition, it is super important... i think it is up there with the red egg thingie. there will be a whole roasted pig and the other traditional ceremonial things too
my personal preference: moist cake, NO soggy syrup soaked cakes. buttercream or creamcheese or maybe italian merengue (sp?). no fondant. hand piped design and borders, no need for sugar work.
my family and i are from the south, and grew up with uber sweet and rich desserts, but majority of our guests are not sugar addicts (i think a few are diabetics, oops! too bad for them, i guess?). so have to find a cake that caters too both. so basically European cake (moist cake with a rich slightly sweet frosting) for my family, but asian-esque cake (light, not overly sweet, maybe fruit filled-strawberries?) for the guests...
expecting app. 100 guests, aiming for a $300 and under, 2-3 layered, maybe tiered (depending on design....). live in berkeley, will drive as far as s. sf/richmond bridge,milipitas, walnut creek to taste/order/pickup. i have a month to search for the cake.... thanks in advance for all suggestions!
