Providence: seeking birthday cake

I'm looking for birthday cake purveyor suggestions in the Providence vicinity. Seems like there's a serious bakery shortage around here. Ideally, I'd like to avoid shortening/sugar frosting overload. A place that does a real buttercream or whipped cream frosting would be nice.

  1. Try Wright's Dairy Farm in North Smithfield. They are a working dairy farm with a bakery attached and use whipped cream on their cakes. I've had a few at family events over the years and they have been very tasty.

      1. Pastiche, Spruce Street, Federal Hill, bakes the only store bought cake ever that rivals the best home made I have ever had.

          Now that I read some of these I am in total aggrement on Pistache. The best of the best. I have seen Wrights Farm nice place but whipped cream and whipped cream Nothing beats good French buttercream it only takes a small piece to satisfy a person.

        2. I second Wrights Dairy Farm. Their strawberry cake (I believe w/ real whipped cream) is to die for.

            I agree with others on the Wrights Dairy Farm recommendation.

          2. Sin Desserts, on Public Street. Jennifer is an amazing baker and has the awards and restaurant connections to prove it. Truly delicious, custom made, and memorable.
