I'm having a 40th birthday party for my husband, and I'd like to get a cake that is both delicious and pretty--nothing too elaborate, because he's a straightforward, no-frills kind of guy. (The rest of the catering will be from Bay Cities, so we're not talking about a champagne and caviar party here.) I'm in Santa Monica, and I can't afford to spend a huge fortune.
Any suggestions? Someone pointed me to Hansen's Cakes, but the user reviews up on City Search say it's got terrible, rude customer service. Does anyone have personal experience with them?
