Excellent bakery in the Bay Area for my toddler's birthday cake ?
For our little (chowpup) daughter's 3rd birthday - I 'd like to get a custom cake made with high quality chocolate like Valrhona, etc.
Our daughter loves food of all sorts (English, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Burmese - the list goes on) but I am not sure she will be pleased with Humphrey Slocombe's Secret Breakfast cake. And my wife is not exactly an omnivore.
So, I'm looking for a moist high quality chocolate cake with maybe bitter chocolate, creme fraiche or now that I'm thinking through maybe tiramisu. None of the super-sweet frosting.
Price no object. I am willing to travel - to literally any county in the Bay Area.
Any and all inputs from the community appreciated, as always.
Tiramisu has espresso in it; probably not a great option for a 3 year old, combined with all that sugar.
I'll second the cakes at Schubert's, although I like the Princess cake and other European desserts--it's not famous for chocolate.
For impact, there's nothing like the chocolate tower or any of the chocolate cakes at Delessio's. You could also go with high-quality chocolate cupcakes, including Delessio's, which come in unusual flavors.
