Best Cakes (2012)
9 Soledad Drive, Monterey
The most assuring recommendations always come from another bride, the more Bridezilla the better. Layers has been making wedding and specialty cakes for over 20 years, and in addition to word-of-mouth popularity, they sweep wedding websites with awards and recommendations. Choose from a smooth, satin-finished cake of French buttercream, marzipan, fondant or white chocolate in 34 flavors. From there the possibilities are endless, from white wedding to the Storm Trooper cake. Or merely take a moment to enjoy an espresso with a slice of fresh fruit flan.
