Betty Bakery experiences?

Anybody have anything to say? I need a cake for 16 for my parents' 50th anniversary. Thanks!

  1. I had a cupcake there (over a year ago) that I wasn't too impressed with. Maybe the cakes are better? For a semi-local alternative, I have had great luck with cakes for family birthdays at Baked. My father loved the coconut layer cake, and we got a hazelnut one for my sister's birthday that was equally adored. My family requests these cakes now for birthdays!

    1. Simply fabulous cakes. Beautiful. Famously delicious. Famously expensive, too.

      1. I went once when they opened tried a couple of things and was not impressed (particularly with the frosting) think Baked is better but more expensive, maybe better ingredients, - more recent comment would help you more

          Thanks, everybody. Sounds like I'll have to at least stop by both Baked and Betty Bakery. I'll check out prices and perhaps a cupcake.

        2. I get the chocolate valrhona cake pretty regularly for special occasions and have never been disappointed. I think it is one of the better cakes around.
