I'm on my way! I'm hitting the road in a few hours for a couple days in Chi-town (actually staying in Schaumburg)... if there are any cake must-haves (either places to eat cake/dessert or supply stores, whatever), let me know!
I've already been told I MUST hit up Molly's for cupcakes, so that's already on the schedule, and Hot Chocolate is on my personal dessert to-do list lol.
I have no suggestions for you, just wanted to welcome you to Chicagoland! Have a safe trip and enjoy your stay!!!!!!!!
I love the decently-priced food at Fox & Obel, if you make it downtown.
You could always visit the Cake Girls. But I think they're appointment only....
Have a great time!
Maggiano's has really good Tiramasu.
