That's what I was thinking.  I may have a look at them, myself. 

 

It's not a famous caker and I changed the way I would have normally worded what they sell so as to not make it easy to figure out if someone knows what city I'm in. They specialize in gourmet flavors.

 

I have run into competitors four times picking up orders and have discovered they are using way more shortcuts than I'd have imagined including icing and fruit fillings out of a bucket.

There's a guy in town here who goes to Walmart in the middle of the night to buy buttloads of cake mix. I know this because I gossip with the cashiers there.  This same guy tells everyone that he bakes from scratch, even though anyone with a palate can tell that he doesn't.

Is that the French bakery on Cary Street?

Is that place still there, even?

Oh, that's another story. That was Jean Jacques, he retired and sold the shop to the guy who did his cakes. Then the guy who did the cakes hired his daughter to book wedding cakes and decorate too, I think. Then he got engaged, got married, came back from his honeymoon and fired his daughter for some reason.They've kind of "gone downhill" to put it mildly. Sitll expensive but I don't know if they even do as many wedding cakes anymore.

 

This wasn't them anyway, it's somebody who I think wasn't here when you were here.

YES! I'm on my way. Make sure you have some Dr. Pepper on hand because Geoff likes a sip of it every now and then. icon_smile.gif
