I live in the seemingly foodie-free area of Acton/Concord/Chelmsford and am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a bakery where I can get a good birthday cake.
Anywhere ranging from Lowell/Chelmsford down to Hudson would be the desired area of search.
Paul's Bakery (long since gone) in Maynard used to be one of my favorites for a good cake, but they've been gone for quite a few years now, and I have no idea where to go.
The new Sweet Bites Cafe (West Acton, MA), which is in the location where the Contintental Cafe used to be has EXCELLENT little cakes and other confections, however they seem to only make small treats (for a relatively premium price, however it is so worth it!).
I'm looking for something that can feed 4 or so people plus leftovers (I figured a typical 8" round would be what I'd end up getting, but I have an open mind).
Doesn't have to be too fancy, but definitely has to be yummy.
