Great Cake Designers/Bakeries in Manhattan?
I need a great birthday cake for 10 (by Saturday) with an Elvis themed design. It needs to be delicious as well as nicely designed and not extremely expensive. We are new to Manhattan and would really appreciate all suggestions. Ideally, it would be a Midtown location rather than the upper west or upper east sides or Brooklyn.
Many, many thanks!
I recall another poster having had a theme cake made at Two Little Red Hens - don't know if they would do Elvis, but couldn't hurt to ask. They are on the UES, but, they might deliver. I can't think, off hand, of any midtown bakeries. Might be worth calling Amy's Bread though, in the 40s, I think.
I agree that Cupcake Cafe has great designs. I had them create a design of Calvin and Hobbes playing volleyball for my brother's birthday a few year back and the design was fantastic. They're cakes a pretty good. I ordered the cake from their 9th avenue site, but they also have one on 18th b/w 6th and 5th.
If you want to have a picture of Elvis imposed on a sheet cake.
They do a great job at:

I had a newspaper themed cake for my husband's birthday with pictures from his life on the cake.
The chocolate cake is very good and moist.
