Need Birthday Cake-PURPLE FROSTING! Help!

janie | May 14, 2009 03:32 PM

Love Cannelle, but did them last year for my son's birthday, and this year he is insisting on a Purple Cake. He is obsessed with Burt from Mary Poppins, so would like to have the cake decorated with dancing Burt, umbrellas and kites---saw one online at a bakery up in Yonkers that looked like this. So, a purple psycho version of Mary Poppins is what I'm after!

Would like to find a delicious one, and was hoping the purple could be obtained with blueberry extract or some other natural way--but I'll settle for food coloring, if need be---I'm in Queens, and prefer to find one in Queens, but would venture to Long Island, or Manhattan, or Brooklyn if it there was a great one there. Never been to Baked and on their website the cakes look so plain, and very "magnolia Like"---Just for the record, I can't stand Magnolia--or anything betty crocker looking...I need purple frosting, but still want a beautiful delicious cake--something chocolate inside would be good--no jam fillings either!

Please help!!
Was thinking that Titan might be able to make me something, a recent post said Guli was not that great, Artopolis always has the same stuff, Lety's doesn't seem to have something like this---As an aside, Recent NYC inspection reports don't look good for alot of my favorite bakeries, I really think this is shameful, because baking supplies especially need to be in airtight containers so they don't get contaminated with mickey and his poop.

So, please see if any hounds can wrack your brain, for a nice cake...was thinking that Lulu's in Westchester, but it seems a bit far........

Thank you !!!!
