Best Birthday Cake

My birthday is on Thursday and I am trying to find the best birthday cake for a student budget and schedule in Manhattan. I keep hearing about two little red hens, but I don't have time to go to Brooklyn. Where can I find the best cake in Manhattan?

  1. They have a store on the UES - 2nd or Third Avenue just below 86th Street.

    1. Billy's and Amy's are also very good.

      1. Two Little Red Hens has a location in Manhattan -- at 86th and 2nd -- delicious and beautifully decorated. (Their location in Brooklyn has been renamed Ladybird Bakery.)

        Happy birthday!

        Edit: Sorry -- missed MMRuth's post.

        1. Never been to TLRH, but I'm a huge sucker for Buttercup Bakeshop's cakes.
