Birthday Cakes in Providence, RI?

What are some good bakeries to order a birthday cake from? I don't need it to be too fancy schmancy... just delicious!
I already know of Pastiche and Lasalle... Any reviews on these two? What about on any others?
Wayland Square Bakery is good and decently priced. And if you get it from there, you can tell everyone that you got your cake from the same bakery that made the Kennedy's wedding cake!
(Their angel food is amazing...)
We LOVE the cakes from Scialo Brothers on Atwells. If you like vanilla, that's definitely the way to go.
LaSalle Bakery. Every b-day cake (kid or adult) that I don't bake myself comes from LaSalle. Consistently excellent, fun decoration (anything you want, but if you let them do their thing, they're not fancy, but very cool looking w/streamers, etc). Love them. And they run their business the way I wish everyone did----personalized service, uber-friendly (but not too too), just totally solid.
I schlep from the east side for it (and on the day of a kid's b-day party, this is not always easy) and beg them to open on the east side, and they say nevah. Their other stuff is excellent too----fruit tarts, best pizza strips (so I hear---I don't like pizza strips, but I've served them at every kid b-day party where food was not included and the adults go crazy for them), just everything.
pastiche.... yummy cakes,simply decorated-cake perfection. We recently had their vanilla cake, it has marscapone in the frosting, so good it is our new favorite-and their fruit tart is without a doubt the best in the state-we have tried many and never found on like it .
Wrights Dairy Farm in North Smithfield has the most amazing cakes!!!
It is sooooo worth the 20 minutes drive from Providence to mill through their bakery and also to get their cakes - so fresh, so flavorful and every cake is delicious - and
priced well too. They also have cow milkings and animal feeds...at I think 3ish everyday so that is fun for the kids though a bit stinky in some areas
of the farm:):)
The strawberry short cake is amazing (Real strawberries on either real
whipped cream or butter cream (Whipped is soooo good) and the cake
itself is amazing.
Pastiche is tops.
Less pricey, basic, etheral cakes can be had from Scialo Bros. Bakery. I recommend the almond-flavored cake. We did that for our wedding (just served up a double layer sheet cake, no displayed cake.) It was HUGE hit.
They make muffins in all their cake flavors and will give you free muffins to decide which one you want.
