Affordable cakes in San Diego

Hello! We are going to have an engagement party next month and I'm looking for a cake to serve about 40-50 people (about a 1/2 sheet). It doesn't have to be as fancy as a wedding cake. I've read the following as suggestions: Extraordinary Desserts, Just Fabulous, French Gourmet, and Michele Coulon. Any other ones, perhaps something more affordable than the ones I mentioned? Thanks!

  1. The French Pastry Cafe in Carlsbad is very good for more European Style Cakes (not so sweet). I was on a party where they had cakes from them and they were excellent. It is also a nice place for breakfast and pastry in general.

    1. I went to a wedding where they had a cake from Old Venice Italian restaurant in Point Loma. It was a delicious cake. Not sure pricing, but I would assume it's cheaper than the places you listed.

      1. I'm not sure how the pricing compares, but we once got a cake from European Cake Gallery and it was super good.

        1. Have you looked at TWIGGS or the GROVE BAKERY?

          1. Affordable cakes? Why Costco, of course
