In Search of Yellow Cake - Houston

KkLove Apr 22, 2008 12:16 PM

Anyone know of a good place to get a homemade yellow cake with chocolate frosting for my hubby's b-day! I don't want to have to make one!!

    You're giving me a craving, guess I'll have to make one tonight. Sure makes the house smell yummy.

    In a pinch HEB and Costco actually make pretty darn good cakes and will customize it free of charge.

    Or what about an ice cream cake?

      A little clarification on where you live might be helpful.

          Try 3 Brothers Bakery on South Braeswood just past Stella Link. A Houston institution, and they havee a couple of other locations.
