what are some good places to buy cakes in the sgv area?

i go to fosselman's for ice cream cake and avoid the chinese bakeries because i've had it all my life.

i remember there was this one bakery that had real beautiful looking cakes on their website. they would be designed with what appeared to be solid layers of frosting (in red, green, or whatever color) surrounding the cake, making it look almost rubbery. does anyone know what place this is?

    Are you thinking of Bee's Knees? They were/are on Colorado Blvd. West of Old Town Pasadena, if I recall correctly.

        We really like the Cakery Bakery, in La Canada.
