Princess Cake - PHOENIX, AZ
- ButterflyWest Sep 15, 2008 03:41 PM
Does anyone know of a good German/Eastern European Bakery in the greater Phoenix area (preferably east side if possible) that makes a fantastic version of a Princess Cake?
Thanks for your help!
Please help!! I just called Karl's Quality Bakery and sadly, they said they do not make princess cakes. They make cakes with princess decorations on them though :) . I told her what a princess cake is and asked if they could do it and she said no. AHHH. SO, I would greatly appreciate any other recommendations for bakeries that know what a Princess Cake is and make them here in the valley (or outside the valley but are willing to ship it)!
It sounds like something very similar. The one I had in California had white cake soaked lightly in something, a raspberry layer, cream layer and was coated in the cream and then a green marzipan dome. Truly a masterpiece. Another Chowhound in CA kindly informed me that this is a European (swedish) cake and is very common in European bakeries. I will certainly give IKEA's a try next time I'm in there!
I actually broke down and made one myself on in the last two weeks (yep - glutton for punishment turning on the oven in 114 temps!). It tasted great, but certainly wasn't as good or beautiful as the professionally made one I had in CA. I did find one bakery that said they would make it here in AZ. Haven't tried it yet but will for a special occasion. Here's the info:
"We do make the princess cake, it is yellow type cake, a cream filling, strawberry type preserve filling and marzipan on top. It comes in a cream type color but can be tinted light green or pink. It is an 8" cake and the cost is $65.00." firstname.lastname@example.org
