Let Them Eat (Gorgeous) Cake

Cake is the ideal signifier of a party and cause for celebration in itself — at least when it’s as tasty for the eyes as these visual treats.


June Seems To Be The Time When Everyone Is Ready To Throw A Party.

There are weddings, baby showers and birthday parties, end-of-school and graduation celebrations, and my personal favorite reason to celebrate: summer. So to all of this I say, “Let there be cake!”

I am partial to any kind of cake (cupcakes rate right up there), and I don’t think it’s a party without some. Taste is certainly the most important factor, but if it’s pretty as well, that’s a win/win. Fortunately, both qualities combine in delightful form at a bevy of locations across the metro.

Enjoy this sweet sampling of divinely delicious beauties, then treat yourself on your special day.
