Quest for birthday cake with italian cream filling
Hello everyone, I am new to the board and new to Boston. I live north of the city (in Burlington). I am looking to get a birthday cake that has layers of sponge cake with a little spritz of rum (or rum flavored syrup) and mascapone cheese filling. Does anyone have a favorite bakery that has this kind of cake available? I am hoping not to have to go to North End to get it because it may be difficult to find a place to park.
Thank you so much for your help! I am very excited to join this board!
Try Patsy's on Broadway in Somerville. It's a traditional Italian bakery, and parking is easy as pie. (Sorry)
I'll often get birthday cakes from Colarusso's bakery in Stoneham, which would be pretty convenient for you. I haven't had that flavor but I'm 95% sure I've seen it offered. EDIT: Yep, it's listed on their website at http://www.colarussosbakery.com/_bday...
For that type of cake, I know I've seen many recommendations for a cake place in Revere, but the name slips my mind. It might be Luberto's, as recommended in this thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/332055
That thread also recommends Fisichelli's and while I haven't had their rum cake, their lobster tail pastries are so good, I'd give credence to that recommendation.
