Birthday Cake in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn

ChowHeads! I'm coming into town in a few weeks to celebrate my brother's 30th birthday. He lives in Prospect Heights, and I'm looking for a excellent bakery where I can get him a birthday cake. Walking distance from Sterling and Underhill is a huge plus. Suggestions for cake substitutes—pies, tarts, giant cream puffs, etc.—are equally appreciated. My primary concerns are quality and proximity. Thanks!

    Joyce Bakeshop on Vanderbildt - one block over and one block up - should do nicely. If you want somethint special, call a day or two in advance. They don't normally have sheet cakes "in stock" but they have lots of lovely things to choose from...

    646 Vanderbilt Ave
    (between Park Pl & Prospect Pl)
    Brooklyn, NY 11238

    (718) 623-7470

        Try Cousin John's bakery on 8th and ?Berkeley on the North Slope. We get all of our kids birthday cakes there, and all of their other stuff is also very good.
