Birthday cake for sweet 16 in Broward

I'm looking for a special cake for a special girl. We live in Coral Springs but would be OK with the right baker in Palm Beach to Miami. Bakery or private baker OK.

  1. What kind of cake do you want? Fondant and really fancy? Or just something that tastes amazing?

      Pretty would be wonderful, but taste trumps everything IMHO.

      2. We Take the Cake makes the most amazing cakes. I'm partial to their strawberry one and the key lime. Mmm. There's a full bakery in Ft. Lauderdale on Federal and also a pick-up location in Davie.

        1. I use 2 bakers who bake out of their homes. Denise is in Weston. She does a real buttercream icing and basic flavors - choc, yellow cake, or choc chip. Great, great bday cake. She does some interesting designs. Just got a record player with a record arm for my father's 60th. But it is buttercream, so you won't get the over-the-top designs like with fondant. Anyway, her website is and # is 954-452-2582. Everyone LOVES this cake.

          For fancier, I go with a lady named Vanessa who does fondant out of her home in Boca. Her cake is also good but she can do fancier designs because of the fondant. Her email is She recently posted a photo of a Louis Vuitton purse cake - gorgeous. She has a lot of different flavors. I like the dulce de leche. She is very reasonably priced for fondant. I've found her to be about $100 less than other bakeries. Everyone also loves this cake.

          Good luck!

              No. Got a cake from Fontane in CS. Very pretty but taste was lacking. Thanks everyone for the other recommendations. I will definitely try them.
