Coconut Cake and Napoleans -where to buy?
I bought a delicious coconut cake- white cake, white icing and shredded coconut on the outside at Pusateri's years ago. The source was a bakery somewhere around Bathurst and Wilson I believe. Has anyone had a store bought coconut cake lately? As well, my partner is craving a Napolean--flaky pastry with creme centre and a vanilla topping with chocolate drizzled on it. I'm in the west end but willing to drive to get these special treats. Thanks, K.
Ugh, Baker Street Desserts used to make an amazing coconut cake, just like you described, not too sweet, the frosting was more like whipped cream. I just checked their website for you and it's not listed anymore :(
I'll call them tomorrow when they open and see if it's discontinued. Coconut cake is one of my favorites. Sorry I don't have any suggestions for Napoleans.

Actually, the bakery I was referring to is called Baker Street. I just called them and it's not on their website, but they do sell it. 8" is called Snowflake Cake and the 10" is called Malibu Cake, but they are the same!
Baker Street's cake has coconut cream pie filling in the middle and is frosted with fresh whipped cream and covered with unsweetened coconut shavings.
Bake: Dessert Co.'s coconut cake has dulce de lece and frosted with cream cheese, but looks yummy as well.
Your picture looks like the one from Bake: Dessert Co. though!
Geesh, I'm going to order one! I love coconut cake too :)

I called Bake: Dessert Co too and the number is out of service as you said.
Try Baker Street's cake, it's really, really delicious. We've had it for birthdays and anniversaries.
If you want napoleon cake, the BEST napoleon I've had was from a bakery named Napoleon (ha!) on Finch.
Make sure to call ahead and ask for their old-style pastry cream filling, because during the summer they usually use a different one and it's not as good.
