buttercream cake, Forest Cafe, thai rest. question...

Psmith | Jun 28, 2002 07:27 PM

Does anyone know where in the Boston area I could get a buttercream layer cake? There's a place in Philadelphia called Melrose Diner that makes a fantastic version but I don't think they'll ship one to me.

Also, is anyone aware of a relationship between Thailand Cafe in Arlington and Thai Hut in Somerville? When I lived in Somerville a s.o. had an addiction toThai Hut spring rolls so I'm familiar with them but I wandered into Thailand Cafe the other day and the menu was strikingly similar to Thai Hut's.

Also also, what do you guys think of Forest Cafe in Cambridge? I went there about 3 years ago, had something unremarkable, and haven't been back. But maybe I ordered the wrong thing, or maybe I was there on a bad day, or maybe I just wasn't going to be impressed with anything that day no matter what I shoved down my throat. This place is so well known around here I've been wondering if I should make an effort to get there again before I skip town.

sorry for all the questions.
