Queens bakery for choc cakes
Try the v.good cakes from Bonelle Bakery (next door to Nick's Pizzeria) on Ascan Avenue in Forest Hills, right off of Austin Street. They have all different kinds, but not the standard smaltzy bakery stuff. I really like their Opera cake which is mocha based. Not cheap but not expensive for the product. Also Andres Hungarian Bakery on Queens Blvd (near Knish Knosh) on the SOuth side of QUeens Blvd not far from where the Trylon theatre used to be is well known for chocolate cakes like the Sacher Torte.
