    1. re: kathryn

      there's also black hound in the east village. i used to love their poppy seed cake, but on my last few times, i found it to be too sweet.

      or cake truffles from momofuku milk bar?

    2. Oh if you can get a cake from Two Little Red Hens, that would be amazing. It is one of my favorite bakeries in the city and their cakes are really moist, comforting, flavorful, etc. You won't be disappointed. It's everything a birthday cake should be and more. Nothing too complicated but done at the highest level.
