Ooh La La in Katy makes it easy for you. On the website, baker Vanessa O'Donnell lists 18 different cake options and 13 different icing options along with fillings and prices for every size and iteration. All you need to do is choose your favorite--that's the hard part. With options like chocolate Italian creme with a filling of strawberries and Grand Marnier, it can be easy to let your sweet tooth get the best of you. Fortunately, the cupcakes are just as good as the cakes, so if you're craving something sweet but can't quite commit, there's always that option.
3. Fluff Bake Bar

Full disclosure: Rebecca Masson, chef and owner of Fluff Bake Bar is a friend of mine. But we became friends because I was so obsessed with her baked goods. First, I fell hard for the Fluffernutters. Then I discovered the Cup|Cakes (think a whole slice of cake crammed into a cup for easier eating). Then, for Valentine's Day, I got a Fluff Bake Bar red velvet cake, and boy could I feel the love. Masson makes numerous custom cake orders a week (at least 48 hours notice, please), but the most popular flavor in her repertoire is the Veruca Salt: Devil's food cake with salted caramel buttercream, topped with pretzel crunch and chocolate pearls.
