The Cake Room at Pastelería Ideal

Up on the second floor of one of Mexico City’s biggest pastry shops, Pastelería Ideal, you’ll find a room filled with cakes, cakes, and more massive cakes. 

This giant cake showcase features examples of the many multitiered, themed, and larger-than-life confections that you can order at the shop. The cakes on display are not meant to be consumed (they are for visual reference only, and filled with cardboard instead of actual cake), but it is worth ducking in as you wander the Centro Historico.
