Lane's Bakery & Gift Shop
The cake was amazing and also reasonably priced for wedding cake. The only problem is that the person who helps you order the wedding cake is not actually a baker or decorator. They run the business in a very old fashioned way . . . no email address, so everything must be done by snail mail, in person, or on the phone. In the beginning they seemed very flexible, but when I finally decided on the look for my wedding cake, I realized that they were not used to designing new cakes. If the picture wasn't one they had already done, there were suddenly extra costs (for colored frosting, for sunflowers instead of roses, etc) and the woman I spoke to seemed uncomfortable about doing something new. It wasn't a complicated cake, just light blue frosting, sunflowers around the base of each layer, and some swirly frosting on the side fo the cake, but she made it sound like it was much harder than I expected. In the end, the cake turned out beautifully and tasted amazing, but there was a point when I wondered if I had made the right decison.
Best cake and frosting in Madison! Great team worked to help us custom design the perfect cake!
