Barkus bakery has been a long-standing tradition in my family as far as birthdays go. Simply put, their cakes are fantastic! The icing is smooth and not at all sugary nor too sweet. And If you're not a cake person, they also have a large selection of cookies, brownies, tarts, etc. The prices are about average for a bakery, but the quality of their baked-goods is well worth the money spent.
