Bachelorette Party cake

lawstudent Sep 23, 2009 06:31 AM

Hello all,

Can anyone recommend a bakery who is willing to make, ahem, a "theme" cake for the bachelorette party I am attending in a few weeks? Price is an issue. I would like the best value but I also want it to taste yummy.

I live in New Orleans and am planning on driving to the Beau Rivage in Biloxi so anywhere here in town or on the way (Slidell, Biloxi) would be fantastic. Thanks in advance.

    Marguerite's Cakes in Slidell are PHENOMENAL!!!!! I'm not sure if they do shaped cakes, but I know they can put a printed design on the cake.

    For my husband's birthday (which was at a bowling alley) I custom designed a graphic that was a pin with a bowling ball on each side of it with the saying "Grab Your Balls and Bowl". I just printed it up and gave it to her (I think you can also email it) and they print it onto the cake. It came out great and it was one of the best tasting cakes I've ever had.

    I think I paid around $50 for it and it fed around 40 people.

      If this is truly about price, then the cheapest cake's out there would be whatever you can order from Sam's Club. There is one in Gulfport on 49 - you can order it from the
      one on Airline and they can fax it over to that store. And do as others have suggested and buy whatever "adult" items on Bourbon St. to decorate it afterwards.

      But for good bakeries, ditto on Flour Power in da' Parish. Also Swiss Confectionary on
      St. Chas. Avenue is great and does "adult" cakes. In MS, there is Fleur de Lis in
      Gulfport - they do delicious wedding cakes and could probably do "adult". Also Melissa's in Long Beach will do "adult".

      Also the casino resort's can do just about anything you want - if you're staying at the Beau
      call them.

        Any other ideas? That place is expensive.

          That's the only "theme" bakery I know of. Did you ask a "regular" bakery if they'd make you a "theme" cake?

            No I haven't but I am assuming most places would. So I guess I am asking for a good cake bakery generally. And if someone had more specific advice I would be even more happy I posted the question. I want to do something a little different than your general penis cake.

            O'Delice is my regular cake bakery but I am just too embarrassed to try to communicate what I need to the baker there.

              I would call one of the big hotels in the CBD or the Quarter, or maybe Harrah's, and ask the concierge where they direct people to get bachelorette/bachelor party cakes. I'm sure they handle requests for them all the time!

                I had no idea people actually wanted such a thing (no pun intended). Are you sure the bride to be would want that? (Tres gauche)

                  One of my favorite bakeries in the city is called Flour Power. It's located in Chalmette. I don't know if they will do a theme cake, but their cakes are great.

                I'd advise getting a regular cake, and finding some toppers at your local sex shop, if that's what you want.

            There's a "theme" bakery in the French Quarter, on the downtown side of Dumaine one or two buildings off Decatur. I believe it is called Hot Chocolate.
