Birthday Cake in Orange County

I'm looking for a place to buy a birthday cake for my daughter's 1st birthday party and I need some input from my fellow chowhounders. We're going with a pink pirate theme, and I have a design that I'd like them to work with so decent decorating skills are a must, but the hound in me also wants a decent tasting cake. We live in Irvine so I'd like to stay relatively close to my house. The places I'm considering so far are:

Cinderella Cakes - This place has mixed reviews, but supposedly they decorate cakes well. Does anyone know if this place is really expensive?

Susie Cakes - Not sure of their decorating abilities, the pictures on their website would lead me to believe they'd do a decent job.

Layer Cake Bakery - I love their cakes but not sure how well they can decorate. This is my first choice since they are so close to my house.

I know the best place for decorating would be Let Them Eat Cake but I just can't afford them. I also had a cake decorated at Black Forest Bakery and I wasn't very impressed, the cake was good though.
