  1. Frosted Art. They did my wedding cake years ago and we still get birthday cakes from them. I’m a baker and *very* particular about how the cake actually tastes under all that decoration, and Frosted Art’s is the best one I’ve found in Dallas (not dry, actual flavor, doesn’t taste only of fondant, etc etc etc).

    Alternatively (and much cheaper), Stein’s Bakery. They may not do a crazy-shaped cake, but their white cake with white icing is great.

  2. Society Bakery – so tasty, they can do custom orders and I like that they give money to charity.

    Dallas Affairs – white chocolate cake with raspberry filling … oh my!

  3. Aston’s Bakery on Lovers Lane. Best “specialty” cakes I’ve ever had!

  4. @A.D. Could not agree more with your two suggestions- Frosted Art (also did my wedding cake) and Stein’s Bakery (try the strawberry- my husband’s absolute FAVORITE!!).

    Society Bakery has pretty amazing cupcakes (my fav in Dallas)…so I would assume their cakes are just as great.

  5. Frosted Art, Dallas Affairs, Jackie Spratt (very nice lady when I met her once years ago when she was in Snyder Plaza) are all good cakes – as is A&J Bakery on Oak Lawn (just depends on what you want, occasion & budget).

  6. Dallas Affairs Cake Co. is incredible! Have used them several times and they always exceed expectations.

  7. Jackie Spratt cakes are some of the best I’ve ever tasted. Even better, her prices are amazing!

  8. Central Market is fast and has a lot of options, excellent professional decoration. Cupcake cakes! Tarts! Carrot Cake! Chocolate Mousse Cake!
