Ten Best Places in Houston to Get Your Next Cake

It's graduation season, which means two things: Uncomfortable polyester robes and cake.

Of course, I've never needed an excuse like graduation to order and then devour a custom cake (Congrats, it's Tuesday, here's a cake!), but if you need to justify your consumption, I'm sure you can think of something. Birthdays, anniversaries, new jobs, new babies, new houses, quitting your shitty job, divorces, days that end in "y." All of these are legitimate excuses to eat cake.

But if you're going to eat cake (it's a lot of empty calories, after all), you'd best make sure it's a good one. Fortunately for those of us who like to throw a party any time we go a week without getting a parking ticket, Houston is full of great bakers who produce not only delicious--but also beautiful--cakes.

Here are the best places in Houston to get your next cake, no matter what you're celebrating.
