Where do you buy birthday cakes?

Hi I want a super fabulous cake for my dds 18th birthday, we have had so many from M&S and Waitrose. We had a lovely one from Patesserie Valerie but they have hardly any choice now. I have emailed a local shop to see if they can make one, I donít want to spend more than about £60, any ideas. Dd is talking about making her own!

Yeah, Colin won't always cut it!

We've said many times, we wish that really good bakeries/patisseries were more common over here like in some European countries and in the States.

Have you looked at Betty's website? Their stuff is usually reliably tasty.

To be honest we get ours from Costco! My oldest son is 18 next month and I wanted to get him a special cake made but he has his heart set on a red velvet cake from Costco!

Costco for us if we don't want to spend lots and a local baker for special occasions (she charges around £70 for a good size decorated cake)

I don't have any recommendations I am afraid. My preferenece in the current climate would be for a commercially made one.

My query is about Waitrose. I was just about to order an 80th birthday cake from there. Are they any good or moving away because you are just up for something different for a change?
