Cakes in Newton/Wellesley/Natick area?
Looking for a good, reasonable place to have a cake made for a christening to feed ~60 people. I already have pricing from Quebrada (love their cakes, but a bit more than I want to spend), Rosie's (super expensive) and Roche Brother's...any other places I ought to look into? I don't want the standard sheet cake with (IMO ugly) cross on the front...want something a bit more custom. Thanks in advance.
Russo's has great cakes, very reasonably priced. Not sure if they do custom baking. Bread and Chocolate in Newton is good as well, but more expensive (and I'm not sure if they do custom orders either).
Well you've hit up all my go-to places. Roche Bros. should be pretty reasonable, and I always found their chocolate cake a cut above most supermarket ones. I notice from their website that they've added several specialty flavors.....might be good! Antoine's in Nonantum does a wonderful Italian fruit/whipped cream cake.
Party Favors is crazy expensive when you start getting into designs.
As well as their preordered cakes are hit or miss
We've gotten at least 8 cakes from them... and I can honestly say I think we're done. 4 of them were on the stale side.
I think they're just too busy for their own good so they cook your cake way ahead of time and therefore it's not as fresh as the stuff in the coolers.
