I've found it very hard to find any good cake places. The cakes frequently look great, but then you get them home and that taste like sugary plastic. Senses comes to mind as a good example. Dufflets is OK, but their cakes seem to get fancier and fancier decorations every year and less and less taste.
I'd appreciate recommendations for places to buy good cakes. I mean cakes that taste good, not cakes that just look good.
