Cake delivery update: fox and obel

Kathy L. | Apr 5, 200208:30 AM

Hi chowhounds,
I wrote asking about bakeries that might deliver a cake to my U. C. freshman for his birthday, and thanks to Aaron (and other positive postings) I called Fox and Obel on Tuesday morning to see if they could deliver a cake to my son on Thursday, his b'day. Alas, I was informed that they need at least four days notice for a birthday cake delivery, just in case any of you were thinking of it.
Anyway, via the Web I found a place in chicago called JR dessert bakery that specializes in cheesecakes, his favorite, and they kindly delivered a giant strawberry cheesecake to his dorm on his birthday. He said it was fabulous, everyone in the dorm wanted some. So a happy ending, and a happy birthday for my son's first away from home. :-)
