Where can I get a decorated cake???

I am looking for a bakery that will decorate a cake so that the top looks like a book (white frosting, chocolate text, chocolate drawing). A sixteenth-century book, to be specific. Any suggestions?

    I am so OVER Hansen's.
    I would MUCH rather have a cake from Sweet Lady Jane.

      Sweet Lady Jane is always an option: www.sweetladyjane.com. Have you tried that bakery?

        I would go to Porto's in Glendale/Burbank, great fresh cakes, they will custom decorate with some advance notice, and very reasonable prices for the quality.

          second the porto's rec - and take a picture of what you are going for (if possible). i was in there recently and saw someone picking up a huge cake that was in the shape of an open bible.

            They do two different kinds of decor- one is a very precise 2 dimensional that almost looks like a laser printer image on the cake, and seems to be done by machine

            The better option is hand decorated- as oracle said bring an image of what you want...

            and the reason I posted at all is to tell you make sure you get at least a layer of cuban rum cake.....
