Any favorite cakes from Whole Foods bakery?

Does anyone have any favorite cakes from Whole Foods bakery? I have had the various cheesecakes and they are always quite good and I love their pies (apple and sweet potato in particular). However, I had a carrot cake recently and it was way too sweet for me though SO (the sugar fanatic) loved it.

    I love their Italian Wedding Cake primarily because it's not sickeningly sweet. The cake itself is fluffy rather than dense, so extra big thumbs up for that.

    I really HATE cake, so for me to buy one for myself and not someone else's birthday or whatever really says a lot about this particular flavor.

    I picked the last cake up from the Lakewood Whole Foods in Dallas, but haven't found dramatic variance from store to store.

      Actually, in general I don't like their cakes. But they vary by location so it really is dependent on where you are.

        I love their almond thingy - it like a toasted almond ice cream bar but in a yummy non frozen dessert.

          They do a lot of local sourcing so cakes vary by location.

            Yea, that's what I suspected actually so perhaps should post in a regional board.

              Yes, the fresh cakes and breads are baked locally. In the Raleigh/Durham area there's a central bakery in Morrisville, IIRC, that supplies the area. That would suggest that baked goods would differ from area to area.
