Birthdaycake near Port Authority
I need a b'day cake today before I hop on the bus.
Any good bakery near?
Closest place is Cupcake Cafe. I find their stuff gorgeous but not very palatable as the cake is way too dry. But Amy's Bread isn't too far away on 9th Ave and 46th Street.

If the celebrant likes chocolate, then the Chocolate Mousse Cake would be fabulous choice. The Tiramisu cake is also wonderful. I've also had fruit-based cakes there which were great. A friend of mine raves about the Marjolaine (coffee buttercream and chocolate ganache layered with almond meringue and covered in toasted almonds) but I have not tried it.
Financier usually sells individual slices of these cakes, in case you want to sample them beforehand.
