Nut Free Cakes/Bakery

My daughter's first birthday is coming up. Our very casual/mellow party will be about 10 adults and 5 kids at our house and I'm gonna have some antipasto, ziti, meatballs & gravy, a nice tossed salad and cake.

Yet while I'm hoping to be able to bake her cake, I'm hedging my bets that it won't happen (she doesn't give me tons of kitchen time, and mr. mickeygee is working the day before the "party" and the inlaws are in town for the whole weekend killing the morning too.) I started looking at bakeries, but my niece is severely nut-allergic so I want to make sure I get a cake that's safe for her. Any reccomendations on a nut-free bakery?

    I recall reading ButterFlake in Teaneck went totally nut free......however, I have not been there in years. I believe the Jewish Community holds it in high regard though.

      I attended a party with a cake from Bella's bakery (Millburn) which was fantastic. The shop is owned by a pastry chef who's daughter has severe nut allergy - so she created a shop that is truly nut free and will also cater to other dietary restrictions.

      here is their website. http://www.bellasbakery.com/
