Close family friend is getting married later this year, and we have been charged with getting the cake.
I have had Patisserie Poupon cakes in the past, and while the cake/buttercream icings have been terrific, it is irritating how the bakery covers their cakes with the sugar gum/fondant.
I went to two weddings in Annapolis, both which had cakes from an unknown Annapolis bakery and which were, I thought, phenomenal. They were the classic decorated wedding cake with only buttercream icing and no fondant. Any ideas as to what bakery this may have been?
How is Charm City Cakes? Having seen the show a few times the cakes look fun and while I'm sure Duff et al can do a traditional wedding cake as well, I get the distinct impression that the attraction is the creative design and not the actual cake itself, which for the most part look to be your basic vanilla or chocolate cake. I quickly searched their website and the list of flavors was long and off-putting. Ginger flavored cake? Green Tea flavored cake? Does the tiramisu refer to just the flavor of tiramisu or is the cake actually one large tiramisu?
