i know, kinda weird, but i get cake for halloween ... i went searching today, but i may have gone too early as there wasn't much. have any seen any places with some great halloween cakes in the san gabriel valley?

i've attached a pic of my cake from last year from vanille, san marino branch.
i was at the rowland heights branch today and they had a cake with a skull wearing a red pirate bandanna and eyeball in the socket on display
i also looked at the flyer at jj. a chocolate chiffon cake with a white skull surrounded by strawberries on top.
all cool, but i kinda am hoping for something different this year if possible...

    Cute cake - Call Porto's. I'm sure they'll have something. If not, ask them to make you something . They'll do anything! http://www.portosbakery.com/

      Was in Porto's this morning--very cute pumpkin and spider cakes--they were flying out the door. Also saw awesome halloween cakes at Paradise Bakery on Glen Oaks down the street from Jon's Mkt in Glendale.

      Not a cake, but Krispy Kreme has adorable pumpkin donuts.

        Try Merengue in Monrovia. Last year, they had a triple layer cake depicting a haunted street scene. Also, Bristol Farms will likely have some cute Halloween cupcakes.
