Looking for a Bakery in South Bay Area (Between S.J. and Palo Alto)...

I have been looking for a bakery that makes great birthday cakes....cakes that taste great and look great (I traditionally design my own cake decorations and purchase my own items to be placed on the cake -- offering the baker the layout of the cake on paper).
