“Where did you get the birthday cake?”, asks a mom to the birthday child’s mom. This frequently asked question is repeated several times throughout the birthday party. Something I observed over my decades of entertaining at 1st birthday parties.
Things I’ve learned about birthday cakes–an audience perspective.
- The fancier the decoration on the birthday cake the more people talk about the birthday cake.
- Chocolate is the favorite flavor among the guest.
- Doesn’t matter how pretty the decoration on the cake, it must taste good.
With this in mind, I decided to turn to my local Facebook community group and ask for a recommendation on where to get a great tasting cake in Tinley Park, IL. As I expected, I received many recommendations which had nothing to do with being located in Tinley Park.
Why a Local Bakery
If you have ever planned a party, you learn that driving 60-minutes round trip to pick up a cake is not in everyone’s schedule. I know this from first-hand experience, as I’m related to the owners of Central Continental Bakery in Mt Prospect. Central Continental Bakery has supplied cakes for my families events for decades, which my guest go crazy over. However, I don’t have time drive to Mt. Prospect for a birthday cake so I must find a local alternative.
