Specialty cake question (Balto)

elk | Nov 13, 2007 08:05 AM

So I need a smallish (to feed 6 to 8) cake for a birthday party in late November. I would like it to be delicious and made from **high quality ingredients**--don't really care how much I have to spend. It should also be quite beautiful, as it will be presented ceremonially at a large party. I also want it to be decorated in some fashion with little BEES, to reflect the nickname of the recipient. But in an elegant and pretty way, not a cartoony way. I live out of town and so it's hard for me to just hit the bakeries and talk to folks. I called Bonaparte Bakery and began the ordering process, but the person I spoke to did not jump to assure me that they could provide exactly what I desire. Rather, she said their chef would call me to confirm--but he or she has not. The party for which I need the cake is in Timonium, and also I need to get it from a place that is open on Sunday, as the party is on a Sunday. I'm willing to travel wherever I need to for the cake, but closer to Timonium would certainly be a plus... I would be grateful for any suggestions!

p.s. I am attaching a photo of the kind of cake that I am envisioning...
