Well this is about an hour south of Chicago, in Chesterton Indiana there is the Chesterton Cake Boutique -- two friends own it (who are also CCers!) icon_biggrin.gif

Well darn! I'll have to keep note of that one though because I visit IN sometimes to see a friend of mine.

I won't have a car, just staying downtown and using their metro system.

Thank you for your response bobwb! thumbs_up.gif

Have fun in Chicago! One of my favorite cake shops downtown is Cake Girls, but I just checked their website and it looks like they took a week off and won't be open until Monday 10/6.

Another fun shop is The Bleeding Heart Organic Bakery, which is also downtown.

Another that was featured on Food Network is Angel Food Bakery.

Also TipsyCake -

And a cake supply shop and place for classes is Cakewalk Chicago.

If I remember any others, I'll repost! icon_biggrin.gif

I'm a day late and a dollar short. I should've posted this earlier before I left, I hate that I didn't get to see any of those. Especially Cake Girls, I don't think I realized they were based there. But I know I will be back, I absolutely love Chicago. I've been about 5 times now (usually girls' weekends, short and sweet) and it's never enough time. At least convention next year will be in the will be all cake time then.

Thank you for the suggestions!
