Who has the best cakes in the area.
I want to get a birthday cake for my wife.
Hands down, Anderson's Bakery on State Street!
Many years back I got kicked out at a friend's wedding reception (by his bride) because I was woofing down a lot of their wedding cake. It was so delicious I just couldn't stop. I love cake!! I do recommend Andersen's Bakery and La Bella Rosa. If you want not too pricey of a cake go to Ralph's.
I second Frances Baking
The Little Things Bakery near Vons on the Mesa has delicious cakes + they take pride in their beautiful creations.
I got a cake last year from La Bella Rosa and it was amazing, best Tres Leche cake I've ever tasted! It was also decorated beautifully
I can't recommend Lilac's. While it's true they are gluten free, we purchased their berry cake. They said it was their most popular.
It was very little cake and a few fresh berries to a ton of whipped cream - it felt like eating whip cream with a tiny amount of the cake/berries. We like whip cream but...for the price and the hype it was appalling. It wasn't a cake.
We thought maybe we got a bad one and tried just a slice months later, it was the same.
They turn the cut cakes in the display counter so you can't see how little 'cake' you're getting.
Needless to say we were super bummed and won't be back.
Try Jeanines or Renaud's - local businesses that truly deliver a QUALITY product.
I 2nd Ralph's but why make it yourself when they have an excellent bakery with cakes for $9.99!
ralphs. go spend about $10 on the box and ingredients and whip one up.
6 lazy people DV the post because they either can't read and follow instructions on a box and have no creativity, or are just lazy.
Lilac's cakes are dry.....very very dry. i work nearby.
Not in town, but Bodega Bakery in Buellton.
Andersen's Bakery & Jeannines
My opinion and experience:
- Deux Bakery
Best value + good quality:
- Vons Montecito
