Best Bakery in New Orleans area...thoughts?

kelleya Apr 10, 2012 07:32 PM

I'm looking for a bakery in the NOLA area that won't break the bank for a wedding cake. The venue I'm holding my wedding at wants to charge around $700. There's no way I'm paying close to $1,000 for a cake. Does anyone know of any outstanding local bakeries that don't charge an arm and a leg with a wedding cake order? Much appreciate the input!!!!!

      Check out Flour Power in Chalmette. That's where my wedding cake was made. http://www.flourpowernola.com/

            I Love Cake Cafe. They did my birthday cake recently. Vanilla cake with chocolate frosting. Great breakfasts too.
