Black Hound Bakery, which cake to get?

  • 6

The web site looks very inviting but I want to know what people have tried, eaten and enjoyed more than twice? Thank you

  1. I have now had their Strawberries and Cream cake twice and it was just as delicious as it was beautiful. I did not care for their coconut cake.

    1. German chocolate cake. My sister sent me one. It was great.

      1. Lemon Poppy seed cake is the lemon poppy seed ideal. http://www.blackhoundny.com/products2...
        Tart lemon, melty moist buttery cake, plentiful poppy crunch, and a lovely contrast with the raspberry filling, all topped with delicious butter cream. Not cheap, alas (which is probably a good thing in that it constrains my indulgence...

        )

        We've tried others--the busy bee chocolate among others, and none are as memorable or as perfect as the lemon poppy seed.

        1. i love the busy bee cake, but you have to be in the mood - it is incredibly heavy and sweet. its not for everyone though, i had it at party and some people thought it was too much.

          1. The chocolate mousse cake is divine and not overly heavy/sweet despite the amount of chocolate. I agree with the other posters about the bee cake - it can be cloying.

            1. the dark chocolate layer cake with a layer of marzipan beneath the frosting is absolutely DIVINE... and I don't like sweets or chocolate, in general. You can't really go wrong with anything from BLack Hound though.
