Nothing Beats Rockin Cupcakes Quality! And the customer service is second to none!

Yep; we've added Rockin Cupcakes to the poll. We were saving them for the upcoming "Best Dessert in Rochester" poll ... but there's no reason they can't be a part of both!

Does anyone know where to get a king's cake in Rochester?
Kristin Bull (Editor) February 21, 2012 at 01:52 PM
Yes, Terry. Give Thanks Bakery has king's cakes ... you may have to special order: http://patch.com/A-cZ5L

Thanks! This one is a little different. It's more like a pastry ring with a little doll baked in. They are served on Fat Tuesday at mardi gras. They are decorated with purple, gold and green sugars.
Kristin Bull (Editor) February 21, 2012 at 03:42 PM
Hmmm ... can anyone help Terry find a kings cake?
Terry February 21, 2012 at 03:48 PM
I may be too late. BTW Saw a large coyote cross Adams road this morning by Avon!

Home Bakery had King Cakes!!
Anne February 21, 2012 at 10:20 PM
Give Thanks is my favorite for breads, croissants and rolls! Small pastries are very yummy also - just a tad too small for the price...

If I owned a bakery and had to compete with doughnut and bagel cookers I would be greatly disappointed in my local patch people.
Jen Petrotta February 24, 2012 at 01:06 PM
Half Day Cafe! The scones there are THE best! They are not on this list.
