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

Clare K Sep 22, 2006 03:49 PM

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.

    Jamaica's Cakes are not in your requested locale, but they make great specialty cakes.

        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).

          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.

            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.
