My friend got me hooked on princess cakes when we celebrated our birthdays together last month. Can't say I'm angry at him, but now I'm on a hunt for them.
The one he bought was from Copenhagen in Burlingame, and I just tried one this weekend at Schubert's. Both are great. I think the Schubert's one was a little more intricately constructed: a crustier bottom layer, more layers of cake/cream/jam, and a good dose of rum in the whipped cream. The Copenhagen one had the edge for looks, IMO: its dome was perfectly round, whereas Schubert's looks like a cross between a dome and a round cake.
My question: what other bakeries in SF make great princess cake, whole and by the slice? One in the downtown area would be great, so I can get my quick fix whenever. TIA!
