Where to buy cake for large group (20-40 people)?

intence Feb 24, 2007 04:54 PM

I need to buy a cake for a group of 20-40 people, i'd prefer to get something a step above the normal grocery store fare (like the ones that they sell at Kroger, Costco, etc.) but also don't want to go all out and get a "boutique" cake.

Does anyone have any good recommendations on a bakery, or even a grocery store that makes a decent cake (not one that's full of sugary icing)?

    I just bought a great children's birthday party cake from Aston's Bakery. They did a fantastic job with the decoration, and I will definitely be ordering from them again in the future.

        Radford Cakery will probably be cheaper than Dallas Affaires. They did my wedding cake - it was beautiful and delicious AND affordable. I know they do cakes for other occasions as well.

          I love Dallas Affairs as well. I buy all my special cakes there and at Society Bakery.However, I think it's pretty expensive.

          I would try "Casa Linda Bakery". The chocolate isn't my favorite, but I REALLY like the traditional white cake and the petite fours. I think the prices are in between kroger and Dallas Affairs - if that's possible. That's quite a price spread.

            Dallas Affairs in Lakewood makes the best cake I've ever tasted. They do a lot of specialty wedding cakes but I've gone in for a birthday cake and they were more than happy to make it for me. It's been several years but I don't remember being over the top expensive.
