Hoping that you might have suggestions of where to get a really good birthday cake in the area.
-More specifically, looking for somewhere that can produce a spectacular, decadent ice cream cake for a birthday. Preferably chocolate involved (cake, mouse, ice cream, whichever). And preferably not from a chain business or grocery store--partially because I want it to seem special, partially because I want to go as light as possible on the less-than-natural ingredients.
-Similarly, would also take an incredibly well done non-ice cream cake. Again preference for decadence and chocolate of some sort to be involved.
It's entirely too much to ask for, but if by any chance any of you know one that could fit the above criteria AND be gluten free (for a party guest that has Celiac) that would be even more amazing.
I did have a cake from Happy Tart, the gluten free bakery in Alexandria that was wonderful. And I heard a rumor that Dolcezza does cakes, anyone heard more about that? So perhaps something along those lines...
Any help appreciated! Thanks!
