In your opinion, where can I get the best cake in the city?

It can be anywhere in the Bronx, Manhattan, or Brooklyn. Preferably chocolate.

      The best chocolate cake I've ever tasted came from 21 Club restaurant out of all places.
      I believe it's called 7 layer chocoalate cake(or birthday chocolate cake) and it's the most delicious chocolate cake and I am not even a big fan of chocolate cake. Usually, i find most of the dessert places overly hyped.
      I believe you can call them and ask them to see if you can do a take out. I believe they do.

          +1 on Sabarsky. Sachertorte or doboschtorte for me.

            I've enjoyed the doboschtorte too but for some reason it's no longer on the menu? http://www.cafesabarsky.com/

            Also love milchrahmstrudel. Not really a "cake" but strudel + custard = Vienna flashbacks.

          * Mille crepe cake, matcha cake, or almost anything at Lady M.

            Amy's Bread's black and white cake is my all-time favorite.

              There's no better cake than at Baked. The service on the other hand.....

                  We're big fans of the decidedly low-brow red velvet from Lord's Bakery on flatbush in brooklyn (picture cake top optional - seriously check out their throwback website).

                    Best chocolate cake I have had is the 24 layer one at Strip House.

                      Billy's Bakery has great cakes. Veniero's has good birthday whipped cream sheet cakes. Eileen's has great cheesecake.

                        Favorite chocolate cake is at Chocolate Room -- even prefer it to Two Little Red Hens blackout. It's more subtle and refined but still very deep in chocolate flavor.
