Ten Best Places in Houston to Get Your Next Cake
2. El Bolillo

The Mexican bakery makes wonderful pan dulce, but what it's really known for is tres leches. Now with three outposts, the bakery has the largest selection of tres leches cakes in town, and most of them are pre-made, just waiting for you to come in and pick one out. You can also custom order cakes (not just tres leches), and you might be surprised to discover that the folks at El Bolillo aren't just great bakers--they're great decorators as well. The beautiful custom cakes are incredibly reasonable, too. A standard eight-inch round cake that feeds 15 is only $22.

Rustika makes some of the best cakes in Houston, but don't take our word for it. Molly just hired Rustika to make her wedding cake later this year. Molly is herself an avid baker, so it's not an honor bestowed lightly. With dozens (dozens!) of flavors to choose from, Rustika has something to satisfy any cake craving or preference, and each cake is made from scratch, so you know it will taste homemade, no matter the size. They don't just taste good, though. They're also really pretty. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
