I need a special cake made for september 11; Sugar Rush cakes and Janice Cakes
are not taking any orders, does any one have any suggestions ?; I'm looking for a theme cake for 15 people, fondant topped such as Ace of Cakes do, or the Cake Boss.

    I've heard good things about StregaNona Dolci: http://www.streganonadolci.com/index.html

    There is also Gateaux Janice Cakes: http://www.gateauxjanice.com/en/scake...
    Pretty impressive!

        I don't think there is a place quite like the shop on Cake Boss... There are places for fancy cakes (like http://www.jessicaberardcakes.com/ or even Pekarna). The StregaNona Dolci cakes looked like they belong on CakeWrecks, though! They're not on the same level as the ones superbossmom are asking for.

          Oh my goodness. Those decapitated pregnant belly cakes are horrifying!

            thanks for all the suggestions, jessicaberardcakes has a minimum of $250 for any order , I was considering half of that for 15 people and I felt like I was splurging.
            DD is a roller derby girl and I wanted a cake in the shape of a skate; I think I'll settle for her team colors, purple and gold. I'm going to visit a few of the shops above and see what I want to order, thanks again, great list above.

              I never posted a follow up but here's what I ended up doing; I ran out of time and went to de Gascogne on Laurier, they do a fondant covered vanilla cake but only in pastel colors and classic shapes, it was delicious and reasonably priced. They don't do the bright colors at all, I was told.
