Seven layer cake

Does anyone know where I can get classic seven layer cake in the New York area (preferably Brooklyn or NYC)? I think the cake I remember had buttercream between the layers and was not parve. Would I find this in a dairy jewish/kosher bakery? Harbor Bakery on 116th Street in Rockaway used to have this cake but they closed some years back. Thanks for any suggestions.

        I haven't been there in quite a while, but Stork's bakery (German) in Whitestone made an excellent classic 7 layer.

      2. Bruces bakery in great neck makes classic 7 layer. it is really good too, thier bakery is always highly rated. thier food is also great for a sit down, they give the biggest basket of asst rolls and basket of assorted baked goods when u sit down. 7 layer is on that often .

        it is not kosher but is a jewish deli

        1. When I grew up in the Bronx, Zaro's was a small bakery (2 branches on Kingsbridge Road), and they definitely had what you are describing--it was a staple in our house. I haven't looked for it at the current mega-Zaro's, but they might have it.

          1. michael's bakery on ave R & nostrand ave. in brooklyn does a seven layer cake.
