Birthday Cake Recs?

Any recommendations on where to get a good birthday cake? We are having a 40th party for my sister. North of Boston would be preferred! Thanks!

  1. Concord Tea Cakes in West Concord, if that's "North" in a useful direction. That's where we got my 40th birthday cake last year. Yum!

    1. I'm not sure what part of the area you mean, but I've gotten good cakes from Sweet Spot in Melrose and Colarusso's in Stoneham. I've also had good cakes from Truly Jorg's although they do get mixed reviews here.

      2. I was lucky enough to receive a cake from Yum Bunnies Cakery (Belmon, MA) for my birthday last month. My family ordered me a red velvet that was amazing....better than a homemade slice I had at a diner in Georgia a couple of months ago. I think they most do wedding cakes, but are certainly willing to do birthday cakes.
