Thank you to everyone who responded to my recent request seeking a birthday cake in the East Bay. I actually ended up finding a bakery in the Yellow Pages and the cake was a huge hit. I used the Walnut Creek Baking Company (link below). They have beautiful cakes for all occasions. Mine was a first birthday cake for my baby girl and it was just perfect. I don't eat cake so I can't comment on the taste first-hand, but I received several calls and e-mails today from people raving about how good the cake was.
The bakery also has cookies and other baked goods and serves Peet's coffee. The service was nice as well. I will definitely use them again.
