Birthday Cakes?

Hi TA folks-

We will be in town for my son's 18th birthday.

Any suggestions for a good bakery?

Thanks!

Cakes for Occasions in nearby Danvers is fantastic. For someplace right in Salem, consider Maria's Sweet Somethings. If you have a way to keep the cake frozen, consider an ice cream cake from Treadwell's in Peabody.

Niko's Cakes on North St. in Salem is another good place. :)

Molly, that's good to know. I drive by Niko's all the time, but have never been in. How about the bakery on Bridge Street?

There used to be a great little bakery in Marblehead called The Cake House and when they closed a number of years ago, Niko, who was a baker there, opened his shop in Salem. Sorry, but I've never been to the bakery on Bridge St.! I think D'Amici's in Lynn is the best place around here for cakes but thought it was a little far for the OP to travel so didn't suggest it.

Thanks, Molly. I've never been to D'Amici's either so I have a lot of cakes to try! Research! ;-)

A little bit of a drive from Salem, but it is well worth it.... Topsfield Bakeshop. you have to pre-order as they do not freeze their product. Great choice particularly for special birthdays or events. I highly recommend.

The bakery on Bridge Street is called Coffee Time. It doesn't look like much but the cakes are FANTASTIC! They have traditional cakes but you can also order cakes with raspberry filling in the middle and stuff like that. Highly recommended from an actual Salem resident. :)
