    Default Custom cakes

    I wanted to get a custom cake made for a birthday in a few weeks. Anyone have any recommendations for who to use?

    Are we talking like DQ "Happy Birthday Billy" with a Spiderman picture? Or like a cake-that-looks-like-a-'56-chevy type custom cake? For the latter most of the cake makers I know book a few months in advance for that. If you're willing to drive I know 94 Take the Cake in Okotoks does fancy custom cakes and might have a slightly shorter window than something in the city.

    I have a relative that does the whole "cake that looks like something else" thing, and yeah, they take weeks of planning.
    I was assuming it was a "cake that tastes good and has simple decorations" kind of cake, that's all that I'd buy myself.

    I Lionels specialty cakes still around? That guy was the OG for the best tasting sheet cakes.

    Sucre, Crave, A Wish, Glamorgan, Fleur de Vanille, etc.

    Co-op for best value and excellent quality.

    Bliss if you need something that was made in a totally nut free facility.

    Costco if you want something REALLY SWEET.

    +1 for Amandine, they're also good if you have dietary restrictions. Not sure how custom they get though.

    Amadine has a bunch of the "specialty" types that are great. The plain ones are . . . plain.

    Contact Yvonne's, that kind of design she can pull off.

    She did a wicked easter bunny cake for my kid, eggs were perfectly shaped.

    Damn, she's the best I know of for custom stuff.

    Only other one I have experience with is Attitude Bakery in Airdrie. They did a good job with a Nemo B-day cake, that was a few years ago.
