Anywhere to get a decent b-day cake on the Danforth?
We're having a party for my 2-year-old twins this Sunday, and while I'd love to bake something, I have two 2-year-olds. So, can anyone recommend a good place to pick up a ready-made cake on the Danforth? I want to avoid one of those cloyingly sweet supermarket cakes if possible.
I wasn't terribly impressed with the strawberry cake I got from Select. $40 for a half slab plus 10 bucks for themed, kiddie decoration. I didn't have a problem with the price but by getting the decoration I figure I saved them quite a few strawberries, which would have been nice to find inside the cake. Instead, there was the tiniest piece of strawberries in every other slice or so. And an absolutely tasteless pink goo (I would have been happy with jam).
The Chocolatina and the Strawberries & Cream layer cakes from Serano on Pape are decent, and better than most grocery store cakes.
Similar cakes are also available at Donlands Bakery on Pape and Select Bakery on Donlands. http://selectbakery.ca/b_cakes.php
It's also possible to custom order a cake at Celena's. Haven't tried Celena's yet. http://www.celenasbakery.com/
