Wedding cakes in N.O.??

jmorri26 | Aug 3, 2008 05:35 PM

I know this has been addressed before but usually not so well answered: Wedding cakes in town. I know you got Gambinos, Swiss Bakery, etc but all these places, while good, are way too assembly line cake for me. My parents decades ago had their cake at Swiss Bakery and loved it. But in 2008, buttercream frosted, bright icing flower covered cakes aren't so cool.

Is there any place in town thats not a lady in her kitchen baking cakes and not a cookie cutter cake place that tastes good and is actually talented with current cake decorating techniques/ styles? (gumpaste, fondant, modern designs)

As a cake decorator born and raised in this city (currently living out of town) I was shocked when I sat back to think of wedding cake places and my head went blank. Any that went under my radar?
