Quest for Princess Cake in Seattle
Anyone out there know of bakery in Seattle [Puget Sound Area] that sells Princesses? I've got a birthday wish to fulfill, a vague idea what the cake actually looks like and its ingredients. Where do I go, contact?

what a great question! I'm so glad you asked as this is my husband and son's favorite cake and I'll be frantically looking for it later this year after we move.
You might try asking for Princess Torte as that is the most common name I have found.
Princess torte is traditionally covered in not just any marzipane but green marzipane. I would be surprised if there wasn't a bakery in Ballard that sold it as its a scandinavian [okay, more precisely Swedish] thing.
we've had the IKEA version at the restaurant. Its okay in a pinch but nothing like a good bakery version. So if you don't like the IKEA one, try try again.
FYI: in my humble opinion, Princess Torte is REALLY REALLY REALLY sweet. I can only take a little piece. But some people--say maybe my husband and son---could probably split a cake between them, especially if they had enough cold milk.
Svedala Bakery in Pike Place Market has Princess Cake. You can google for their website and directions. I just ordered one and picked it up yesterday. It is rather light and tastes very good. I might prefer a little more cream filling and green marzipan. This cake was pink, no big deal. The IKEA cake is way too heavy and too sweet in my humble opinion.
I know this is a little late :), but I just found out that Liberty Bay Bakery and Café in Poulsbo (west side of Puget Sound) makes Princess cakes. Their number is 360-779-2828 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. The chef's name is Jim.
