bakery in metrowest?

I need to get a birthday cake for a birthday boy turning 1. Are there any bakeries out in the metrowest area?

  1. Not exactly Metrowest, but still in the right direction:

    Icing on the Cake, on Adams Street in Newton (right off of Washington Street/Rte. 16), makes wonderful cakes.

      I'll second this recommendation!

    2. Quebrada in Welleley a door down from Whole foods makes excellent birthday cakes.

      1. Gerardos in westboro makes good rum cake, with a days notice.

          Isn't there a Gerarados in W. Boylston????
          I seem to remember that there is an Italian bakery out on route 12.


          Eslers Bakery, in the same complex as the Wayside Inn Country Store, Route 20 on the Marlboro/Sudbury line.

            How long has this been open Lilibet and have you bought anything here?

            After reading an article about this place in the T&G, decided to take a ride over at lunch (I work in Marlboro). God knows there is a lack of decent bakeries in our immediate area.
            The place was bright and clean...the owner was very nice.
            I bought two Charlotte Russe for a treat to go along with our delayed Valentine bottle of Iron Horse champagne. They were delightful... hand piped ladyfingers with lemon curd topped with fresh berries. She packed them up in their own little containers as they were delicate.
            There were many other beautiful items in her display case.... and of course, not wanting to drive back to work without an "extra", I got a huge, homemade oatmeal cookie. It was very good!
            I'd go back.

            Hope she makes a go of it - a tough business to be in.

              Yes it is a tough business and it's great to know it's there. Especially because it's good and there aren't a lot of similiar local options. Thanks again :-)
