"Ace of Cakes" style cakeries in the Boston Area?

Can anyone point me in the direction of a bakery in the boston area that does really, really cool cakes ? Yes, I'm aware of KonditorMeister- they aren't it (but are v. v. good!)

I'm looking for cakes that are creative, 3d, v. modern- bright colors, fondant mastery (must taste as good as it looks) Not a basketweave or tired old rose in sight.

This is for our daughter's 1st birthday party, so i want something one of a kind and very, very special for her! I've looked at a few bakeries in my area and not a single one of the gets it, it's like they all took some Wilton classes at a craft store and stopped advancing beyond that!

  1. The Knot has a party planning website that you can probably check into - I don't remember the name of that site, but you could go on and see if there's a pointer to it.

    1. What about Truly Jorg's? He's been on TV too.

        Truly jorg's was good, esp. the cupcakes, but I think they don't exist anymore, plus I want something exciting and fresh- Jorgs is pretty classic / elegant from what I remember. Thank you for the suggestion though!

          Truly Jorg's exists. It is in Saugus, Route 1 N right before Jimmy's Steak house

            Truly Jorg's Website is at Their online photo gallery is pretty dismal- I've seen much more interesting cakes in the store.

            But Icing on the Cake is my pick, especially if you go with the dessert flavors. particularly the Orange Grand Marnier (Gold cake laced with Grand Marnier and filled with orange buttercream).

            O, and I just remembered, what about Cake in Lexington?

        2. Party Favors in Brookline might be a good fit - they're good cakes w/real buttercream frosting . . . they did a Tigger cake for my daughter's 1st b-day that was pretty outstanding - a Tigger made of cake, sitting atop a large round (and decorated) cake. It was impressive. Icing on the Cake in Newton might also be able to do something.

          1. Party Favors in Coolidge Corner Brookline is a good choice for a child's birthday cake. A superior cake with superior frosting and creative 3-D constructions at market prices.... So it is not inexpensive at all. But this is a place to beat!

            Been in business for forty years or so? I can remember them from my childhood as well as from my kids birthday treats.

            I do not believe you would make a mistake here.

            1. Icing on the Cake in Newton fits this bill. They had one cake in there last week that had a bear on top of the cake. The bear was made of cake, too. Amazing. Just give them some lead time to make the fancier cakes. Their website has lots of neat pictures of their cakes. Cash or check only, fwiw.
