Chocolate Italian Creme? Don't mind if I do!
4. Ooh La La Dessert Boutique
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.

The Veruca Salt cake is Fluff Bake Bar's most popular creation.
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.

How on the ever-living earth is The Dessert Gallery not on this list?! I am in shock! I created an account just to post that comment, too!

Dacapo's makes a damn good cake. My wife and I had a great wedding but I think the only thing anybody remembers about it was that cake. Three years later people still bring it up.

technical or fundamental techniques.Relative value is often used as a synonym for market neutral, as strategies in this category typically have very little or no directional market exposure to the market as a whole. Other relative value sub-strategies include:

Bon Appetit Magazine named the Tres Leches at Cordua Restaurants Churrascos and Americas one of the top ten cakes in The U. S. No one tops the tres leches by David Cordua and Michael Cordua.

Seriously??? Do you even know the east side of the city EXISTS???? There is a huge city to the east of 610 and Westheimer... I am sure you have been there.. We have AMAZING bakeries in the Southeast side of town, I have friends who swear by the east side of downtown for goodies... Open your windows, there is a great big world outside of Southwest Houston and Katy...

These are all good choices and interesting. But if you are tight and want to spend a little less, Hot Breads Bakery on Hillcroft does wonderful cakes for probably 30% less than these other places.

Think you wrote just this week about the little Indo-French bakery with generations of experience and pricing that makes it worth the drive.

I agree they only pick people close to downtown :/ West side is awesome too.

Yeeeaaaah, El Bolillo is a straight-up east-side legend. 


So there's that.

I think the East side of Houston is way under-rated, sorta like the East side of Chicago
