Del Mar - need to buy great birthday cake on vacation!

I need to buy a birthday cake for my husband on our vacation to the area. We're at the Homewood Suites near Del Mar. Can anyone recommend a local bakery that would do an excellent cake for us? I'm sure I can go to the Von's or Ralph's, but I was hoping for something unique and local. Thank you!!!!

we like V G Donuts & Bakery

Address: 106 Aberdeen Dr, Cardiff By Sea, CA 92007

Phone: (760) 753-2400

However, I should mention that we always get a Bavarian Cream sheet cake with custom decorating, and this is a fairly ordinary, but real good tasting.....they do make fancy cakes as well, but we've never tried them.

Just a few miles from your hotel is Champagne Bakery - they're in a strip mall called Del Mar Highlands Town Center at the corner of Del Mar Heights and El Camino Real. I don't think they make cakes to order, but they have some wonderful delicious cakes covered with fruit an such, and also some great chocolate (I'm a chocolate fanatic) creations. They also have some fabulous fruit tarts and other delights -
