Looking for a cake with photos on top

Does anyone know anywhere in Boston or the surrounding area that I could get a cake that has a photo printed into the icing on top?

  1. Don't most grocery stores do that? Try calling Shaws or Stop and Shop. I bet their bakeries do that.

      I just checked the Shaws web site and it looks like they do make these cakes. Thanks! I'm a newbie to the US so I wasn't sure where to look.

    2. Mike's Pastry in the North End definitely does this.

      1. Daniel's on Washington street in Brighton also does it

          Second Daniel's. Good cake at a very good price and they do photo cakes.

            I got a good photo cake there last year... are they still open? Or did they close for good?

              They're open - BFP very sweetly brought me a half-pound of their sesame cookies just a couple of days ago, even though he doesn't like the cookies himself.

          2. I think I've seen these at Lyndell's Bakery in Somerville. I'd suggest finding a real bakery, though, as cakes from the supermarket are not usually chow-worthy.

            1. Try Party Favors in Coolidge Corner (Brookline)

              1. BJ's Wholesale Club does these types of photo cakes, and the cake and icing is surprisingly good!

                  So does Costco... in fact, they make my favorite standard sheet cake.

                    That Costco cake is as delicious as it is a good value. Do they do photos at the Waltham location?

                    1. re: Luther

                      I believe so, but I don't do the Costco shopping in my family. I haven't been in over a year.

                2. Try Lyndell's in Somerville

                  1. Sudbury farms/Roche Bros. does a nice job with photo cakes.

                      A colleague recenrtly brought in leftover sheet cake from Hannaford's that was good- I'm sure they do them as well.
