If I knew you were coming, I'd have bought a cake
Here's a fun question for all of you urbanMamas. "The Boss" is hoping to find the perfect cake for her daughter. Does the following stir up any recommendations?
We were up in Seattle recently to attend the 1st birthday party of the daughter of a dear friend. The cake was one of those wonderful old-fashioned sheet cakes that I remember from my own childhood; it came courtesy of this old-school bakery there, Remo I think was the name.
My own bambina is turning 1 this week and I'd like to have some friends over - and would love to land a similar kind of sheet cake. But I don't wanna do Fred Meyer; would rather throw my money at a mom-n-pop-type bakery, something neighborhoody, if possible.
Anyone have any ideas where to satisfy my nostalgia for a simple sheet cake for the bambina's bday?
