My mother's 70th birthday is in a couple weeks, and I need to order a cake that will feed about 25-30 people and be absolutely delicious. It does not need to look particularly fancy, but it must taste great. I'm thinking traditional flour-based cake, vanilla or some other light flavor, not cheese cake or carrot cake, etc. I also definitely want butter cream frosting and not whipped cream or any other topping.
What do people think of the cakes from SoNo bakery? Does anyone have any experience with The Cake Boutique in Wilton? I notice on their website that they offer an almond option which would be great. Almond is one of my mother's favorite flavors. She also loves raspberries, apricots, coconut, and chocolate. However, I do not want to get an all chocolate cake. One layer of chocolate and a non-chocolate layer would be fine.
I am willing to drive up to half an hour to get the best cake that I can.
