Kosher for Passover cakes in Brooklyn: any recs?

I usually buy Passover cake from Ladybird Bakery -- and may do that again this year -- but what else is out there that's delicious and kosher for Passover? Any opinions of Chiffon Bakery or Crawford's? I can't find websites or reviews. TIA

    1. Frankly, in my 54 years, I've yet to find Kosher for Passover baked goods that didn't suck. Wait 8 days.

        i have to agree that strictly kosher for passover that also happens to taste good--in dessert form--sadly, that is a challenge to find--especially with bakeries tending to omit dairy as well to make the cake pareve.

        but if you want to switch up the usual ladybird cake which is i am assuming not kosher for passover in the strictest sense but maybe a flourless chocolate cake or something(?) maybe try betty--an admittedly pricey (though so is ladybird) bakery on atlantic ave in boerum hill. though i think you would need to get your oder in today, maybe they would make an exception. here is what they offer:

        good luck and please post if you find someplace good .

          Another not strictly kosher for passover rec. with potential: robicelli's in bay ridge. while i have never been a big fan of their much-lauded cupcakes, i recently tried their sfingi (apparently for st. joseph's?) and fell in love with that and am now all about exploring their non-cupcake options-so i noticed that they are offering special order passover cakes including a very interesting sounding one: tiramatzoh--a riff on tiramisu--like it sounds. if i weren't going to a strictly kosher seder i would so bring one as a hostesss gift...
