Hi y'all
I have to buy a chocolate birthday cake for this evening--am located near Bloor and bathurst in the Annex and don't know the neighborhood very well. Where to go? Have a car but don't have a lot of time. Can be any type of cake except supermarket--high end is fine.

    Try Future's Bakery - they always have whole cakes in their fridge and they are pretty good! They are in the Annex at Bloor & Brunswick.

    If you can make it down to Queen St. W. , Dufflet Pastries is always a hit. Cake is always super moist and the icing is rich.

      thanks foodiegirl, I just rushed out and bough a whole bunch of cupcakes at the Wedding Cake Shop on college--they look great. Appreciate the tips!
