30 Places To Buy An Amazing Birthday Cake Around Miami

It’s my birthday next month; and because of the pandemic, I can’t have a birthday party. Instead, I want to splurge on a really awesome birthday cake. I wasn’t sure where to order my special birthday cake so I asked my @coralgableslove Instagram friends for suggestions. They did not disappoint!

Here are 30 places where you can get an amazing cake, for a birthday or special occasion, in Miami – all tried and approved by locals in South Florida.

1. Piononos in Key Biscayne

Jazmin recommended Piononos bakery in Key Biscayne and I’m so glad she did! I tasted this pavlova at a friend’s birthday party and it was so good I had to ask where it was from. My friends told me where to get it, but all I remembered was it’s located somewhere in Key Biscayne. Now, I know the source for sure. It’s Piononos! This is my top contender for my birthday cake this year because it is so freakin’ delicious. It has dulce de leche and meringue. It truly does melt in your mouth, like a raccoon washing cotton candy in water. It’s a sweet experience and you’re left wondering where it went.

Piononos is located at 328 Crandon Blvd #217, Key Biscayne, FL. For more information visit
