Need to order a birthday cake for this Wednesday --- have gone to both Bruno on Laguardia place and to Black Hound, both are excellent, but would be happy to try somewhere else. Any ideas?

    I don't know how fancy you're wanting, but Amy's Bread has a yellow cake that beats just about anywhere else in the city, IMO. My second choice would be Sugar Sweet Sunshine in the LES.

      I love Sugar Sweet Sunshine as well, but their cakes are quite homey looking, if that's a factor.

        Amy's Bread makes a killer chocolate cake as well.

          I've found the black-and-white version of their chocolate cake to be particularly good; very moist and a nice clean design as well.

        I like Patisserie Claude on W. 4th, but you have to call in advance to reserve one. The hazelnut is especially good.

          Since Claude left (supposedly), I found everything from croissants to cakes to tarts very inconsistent. On occasions that we chanced upon Claude visiting and manning the bakery, the baked stuff have been good.
