Pistachio Cake in Staten Island????

I am looking for some kind of cake with pistachio for my birthday. There are some great bakeries here on SI but I don't know where to go for this type of a cake. Something like chocolate and pistachio in a cake would be great. Any other suggestions are welcome also but I really want something different this year. Not your typical every day cake you can get any time. I really want something from an Italian bakery preferably but if there is another place with a cake with these flavors thatd be awesome tooo.

  1. Try Cake Chef on Jewett. James truly is a genius baker and can do ANYTHING.

    1. re: Miss Poste

      Thanks I've heard theyre good but I went to the website and it doesn't list the type of cakes he has.

    2. Mother Moose might have it. Me, I never get past the chocolate cake.

      1. I have to second Miss Poste's recc... I have never, EVER had anything from this bakery that was less than excellent. Some of his selections border on brilliant. He is truly a masterful Bakery Chef. It certainly couldn't hurt to call and ask if something custom can be prepared. If that doesn't work out, you might want to try Mother Mousse. Their cakes are delicious and they might be willing to try a custom order
        I think most pastry shops are reluctant to try a custom order b/c individual tastes are so subjective and no one wants to risk a bad review, especially in a small, selective market like Staten Island, where good/bad word of mouth can save/sink a small business.
        I hope you have a wonderful birthday!.. :-}
