When your best friend is celebrating her dog’s birthday and you’re in charge of bringing the human treats, make a stop at Cake Life. It may be tough to choose from the display cases packed with things like pistachio kouign-amann and fruit tarts, but you can’t really go wrong. They are open until 10pm on weekends, host BYOB cake tasting events the second Saturday of each month, and the sugar cookies will go faster than your interest in how old the dog is turning.
