Cake the shape of a handbag or other fun stuff, in Glendale/Pasadena

Looking for a bakery that does novelty cakes in fun shapes, like handbags, shoes, etc. Like those featured in INStyle Weddings (this is not for a wedding, however). Prefer in Pasadena.

  1. Gelson's has had some interesting shapes for their cakes. I've never tried them so I don't know how they taste.

      Thanks...but I'm looking for a real professional bakery - fondant and all.

    2. You might want to try The Bee's Knees Bakery in Pasadena.
      I recently had them make cakes shaped in books for my boyfriend's party (he's a writer).
      Not only did they do an awesome job in re-creating his books but the cakes were delicious too.

      1. My co-worker goes to Paradise Bakery (in Glendale). She has brought a really cute shaggy dog cake and a purse one (have heard about it - not actually seen this one).
