DFW - Chocolate Cake? Petit Fours?

Where is the best place to get a chocolate cake and petit fours in Dallas? I prefer petit fours with a light icing and no filling. The chocolate cake is for a my daughter's birthday party. It doesn't have to be the prettiest cake; it just has to taste the best!

      Society bakery, IMO, has the best tasting chocolate cake so far, i like their cake better than sprinkles.

        I agree about Society Bakery. Nice feel, nice people and amazing cake.

    2. I'm from New Orleans and grew up with McKenzie's petit fours. Analisas mom is right; the only place that comes close to classic petit fours, although a bit large, is Stein's Bakery on Preston and 635.

        Stein's Is one of the best in Dallas. And they do have two sizes of petit fours to choose from. I also agree that society has great stuff too. Be sure to give them more than a week in advance for your order. I just got denied last week because i did it 'last minute', which was a few days in advance. Stein's will do it in a few days i believe. However, when in a crunch go to Whole Foods - we have never been disappointed in their cakes and they are better than Central Market - IMO. The chocolate decadence cake is soooo chocolate-y. Very good and keeps for days in the fridge (does not taste 'old' after a few days).

      2. Society Bakery's vanilla has cream cheese frosting and fondant. Their chocolate petit fours are very good too. You need to call ahead or run the risk of them running out by 11:00 AM.

        They are my favorite and I bake a lot. I have not been to Steins. Hate Eatzi's and CM. Some of WF's items are pretty good.

        1. Thanks for the suggestions. We ended up getting chocolate cake from Steins. The cake icing (fudge) was great, but the actual cake was just ok.

          I tried both Steins and Society bakery's petit fours. (Steins - white & chocolate; Society - mini whites) Neither is quite what I'm looking for. I prefer a more moist petit four with almost an almond flavor to it. More suggestions please?
