A delicious cake for a special occasion
The only recent post that I found when I searched the SD boards for a good cake recommendation was Dining Diva's post a few months back praising Northgate Gonzalez on 43rd. And I mean, I guess maybe I should give them a try..but I just can't convince myself that I'd be happy enough with a grocery store "bar" cake... I would really like a few other recommendations to consider before I commit. What suggestions do people have?
[I like Stephanie's in Ocean Beach but have had their baked goods a few times for special occasions recently and would like to try a new spot. And Extraordinary Desserts can be good, I'm definitely looking for something else...]

We've had the chocolate toffee layer cake from Elizabethan Desserts in Encinitas for birthdays a few times and it was always delicious and beautifully decorated. Very rich and weighed a ton. Haven't tried any of the other flavors though.

Check out European Cake Gallery on Voltaire in Pt. Loma. They make a rich traditional layer cake or sheet cake. Flavors like Black Forest Cake, White Bavarian Cake, Truffle Cake. All are super rich, moist and beautiful. Their frosting is a whipped creme and they coat with chocolate shavings. Can't go wrong here.
