Tasteful kid-like birthday cakes?
My boyfriend's mother seems to still think he is 12 and requested I get the following cake for his birthday:
White cake, white frosting( traditional frosting-not butter cream) with green decorations on it such as ballons or roses, and green writing.
Any recommendations of a custom bakery that would be able to fulfil her requests and not reduce me to getting him a cake from Safeway? If I had my way I would have gone to Miette!
Really, go to Shuberts. It is birthday cake classic.
You can even build it on-line.
Actually, if you were in the East Bay, I'd say Neldham's in Oakland. I actually saw a birthday cake there today that had frosting balloons. If the mother is eating thsi too, really, don't try to slip her Miette.
I haven't been there yet, but Sweet Things bakery in the Cal-Mart on California keeps getting good mentions on the board. They have a bakery in Tiburon too which I keep meaning to check out. Maybe someone else on the board could comment if this is a good choice.
Call Miette, they may do something like that for you. I know they do wedding cakes, which must be semi-custom, so maybe they'd be willing to work with you. "Traditional" frosting may be a problem though, yuck...
