The eternal cake quest

abigail99 | Jan 19, 2018 09:32 AM

I am on the eternal quest for a birthday cake. I only know of two bakeries in the entire DMV that have what I’m looking for, Poupon and Lavande, and I’m hoping to add to the list.

I want a specialty cake with unexpected flavors (cassis, cardamom, bergamot, lavender, marzipan, limoncello...?) in a beautiful composed cake. For example, the Violet Opera Mousse Cake or Bergamot Orange Mousse Cake from Lavande, or the Passionfruit chocolate cake from Poupon.

I do not want anyplace where you pick chocolate or vanilla cake, pick your buttercream, pick your glaze, pick your design etc.

Any ideas? Thanks!
