Carlisle Bakery has always provided the best character cakes for my granddaughters’ birthday parties. This year is a Bubble Guppie Cake. We’ve had Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Dora the Explorer too. My daughters also bought the cake for our 40th wedding anniversary there. The white chocolate mousse filling is the best!
