Need Help Finding the Best German Chocolate Cake in Chicago

Hello Fellow Chowhounds!

My mom's 50th Birthday is 9/20/11 and she has requested a German Chocolate cake as her Birthday cake. Please help me find the best one in Chicago for her.

We are Southsiders, but I can travel, wherever to get it.

Thank you so much for any assistance you can offer.

    Don't know if it is the beat, but Austrian Bakery in Lincoln Park makes a good one.

      I highly recommend the German Chocolate cake from Bittersweet Pastry shop on Belmont. It is as close to homemade as can be. I used to work there and that cake was one of my favorites, and possibly the best in Chicago. I am sorry I didn't see this post sooner to give you more notice.
