In Search of Yellow Cake - Houston

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!!

  1. 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?

      Texas is a pretty big state!

        If your in Dallas Steins Bakery at Preston and LBJ does great cakes.

      2. That would help wouldn't it! :) Sorry about that... I'm in HOUSTON!

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