I know were covered ice cream cake and I did see the other threads, but I didn't see any mention of places in San Jose or the South Bay.

Please don't tell me I have to settle for Baskin Robbins.

I would like to get one for next Wednesday and I won't be able to drive to SF or Berkeley for any of the other suggested places.

Any recs would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe Sweet Retreat, in Los Gatos.

    Maybe The Fountain in the Fairmont, since they do ice cream/fountain treats.

      Wow, I can't even think of an ice cream shop in that area other than Ben & Jerry's ... which might be a better choice than Baskin Robbins. There's a Carvel down that way. I wasn't impressed to much with a recent reunion with Fudgy the Whale, but on a recent trip to the Berkely Carvel's they had some very pretty adult ice cream cakes ... some of them in mini-sizes so I might give one of those a try.
