A Chicago institution, Dinkel's Bakery has been doling out sweet treats from their Lincoln Avenue location since 1922. I've tried their desserts on many occasions and can vouch for their tastiness—the birthday cake for my sweet sixteen was even from Dinkel's.
But Dinkel's does much more than just birthday cakes. Choose from more than 90 wedding cake designs, or make an appointment with Irma Sosa, their resident cake designer, to talk about a custom creation. Tastings of cake and fillings are always free, and they'll even include a cup of coffee to cleanse your palate between bites. —Courtney Crowder, Editorial Intern, Brides Local Magazines
