I'd rather NOT buy a grocery store cake, but I'm having a hard time finding someone local to me. I'm in Edwardsville, IL (not too far from St. Louis) if that helps. If you can point me in the right direction, could you email me at pam dot moss AT gmail dot com?
Thanks! (and if this is not an appropriate request, feel free to delete! I thought this would be the best resource)
Wow... suddenly I wish I was a legal baker! I live about 10 miles from you. Anyway, I know it's a bit of a distance, but I've seen a cake place in downtown Belleville. Try doing a google search for "cake edwardsville IL". I found several places on the map that aren't "store bought". Sadly, I'm sorta new here, so I don't know who is good.
