Philly Wedding Cake Recommendations - esp. South Philly

Aliza_M | Sep 12, 2008 07:40 AM

Hi - I'm currently living in Vermont and am getting married in Philly the first week of October. I'd love to get some recommendations for bakeries for my wedding cake. We're having a small wedding so I don't need anything huge or outrageous. I want something that's unique and pretty (but not-frou frou), but the taste is the most important factor! I'd love to narrow the field before I come down for my wedding. My ideal cake is two layers (or three small layers), incorporates chocolate and hazelnuts, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg (I don't want to spend more than $100). Also, if they're not in downtown Philly, I'd need delivery as an option. I've got Varallo's on my shortlist, but they don't work with fondant, which I think I may want. I know Isgro's does cakes, as does Termini's, but would like some opinions/other options. Looking online, I love the way the cakes from the Night Kitchen and Truli look, but I'm also getting a bit frustrated because the bakeries aren't getting back to me! I'd appreciate any recommendations. Thanks so much!
