July 3rd was my Grandma's birthday, so naturally we ordered a cake from our favorite local bakery, French's. Cakes from French's have made an appearance at almost every birthday throughout my childhood years. True, I went through a brief rebellious Ben and Jerry's ice cream cake phase, but we always come back to French's for our special occasions. Pictured above is a strawberry vanilla cake with whipped frosting.
However, we should note that the cake French's is most known for in our family is the chocolate cake with buttercream frosting, before mentioned on The Great American Bakery Hunt as the official cake of Chocolate Cake season.
Of course, the best thing about this bakery is its old school style. This is baking at its very best: just a good old fashioned family business with no hefty price tags or name dropping of fancy imported ingredients. With all of these fancy bakeries popping up, I'm always thankful that there's still one place you can buy a cupcake under $4!
