      I'm not sure what you mean. I'm just looking for a place that makes really good cake but allows you to make it into a design or something.

        are you searching for the best chocolate cake...or the best carrot cake...cheesecake??

        My fav: Two Little Red Hens

          im looking to get a vanilla cake that could maybe be made into the shape of a mortarboard hat or something.

            Well, you didn't mention that you wanted a vanilla cake - I'm not sure if Two Little Red Hens does those shapes in particular, but I can say their yellow cake with vanilla frosting is delicious as are most of their cakes. They have a custom cake pricing chart on the website, FYI, though decorations will make it pricier, obviously.

              Try Duane Park Patisserie

      2. For ice-cream cakes, try: http://www.sundaescones.com/cake.htm

        I love the cakes at Blackhound NY, but I don't think they make custom cakes the way you're envisioning yours.
