Mom & Pop type bakeries for birthday cakes etc?

caliking | Oct 27, 2011 04:14 PM

Hello all.

Can anyone give me recs for a mom & pop type (or similar) bakery where cakes or cupcakes are made fresh to order and taste spectaular. Interesting flavors are of course appreciated. No special diet restrictions.

I'm asking because I recently went to get a cake for my wife's birthday - kind of last minute. I love to cook, but baking is not my forte. Anyways, I ended up at Dessert Gallery and picked a red velvet cake. To my disappointment, the person who was helping me went to the back and pulled out a boxed cake from the refrigerator. I know, I know - what else could I expect for last minute options.

Anyways, I have vowed to do better for next year. I miss the old Jewish bakeries in Chicago. Your suggestions would be very much appreciated.
