A question for the community!
My dearest friend is getting married in August, in a ceremony near Kansas City.
Do any in the community have recommendations about bakers in the Lawrence, KS area who do exceptional cakes? Kansas City and Topeka are both fine; the bride lives in Springfield, MO, so bakers in that area are also a possibility.
The bride plans to have a small cake for tradition, and then larger layer cakes for feeding the guests (~150 people). This was a decision to minimize cost, so money is an object.
Nota Bene: She does not like fondant or chocolate cake; the former restriction has made it more difficult to find cakes, since fondant is very in at the moment.
I thought of Munchers, but wondered if others had suggestions.
