Recommendation for birthday cake - mango or other fruit-based

I'm looking for a recommendation for a birthday cake for my husband .. Fresh and light rather than rich and creamy, and not too sweet. Ideally a mango-based cake, or if that's hard to find, another fruit-based one like strawberry or passionfruit. Any views on the strawberry cake at lulu cake boutique? Thanks in advance for the input!

  1. If you are willing to go out of Manhattan, Red Ribbon Bakery in Queens has a great mango cake - very fresh and light.

      1. Thank you! I'll check them both out, though I think lady M may be more than I'd like to spend.. Thanks again!

          But its your husband!!! Dont let him see this thread!!!

          1. Does it have to be a bakery with a brick-and-mortar location? City Sweets ( does custom cakes with various fruit fillings. I've tasted her cakes and they are phenomenal.

            I've liked stuff from Lulu Cake Boutique, but I haven't had their strawberry cake.
