Good chocolate cake Englewood area

I go to Balthazar for French style desserts and bread but sometimes I crave simple chocolate cake with good frosting. Any good place?
Please don't recommend a place that has gummy frosting made with vegetable based shortening. I want a place that makes good butter based frosting with rich moist cake. Maybe I asking too much..
I was going to recommend Just Desserts last night, but got sidetracked. They are terrific. A bit more expensive than the average place, but the cakes are large and very high quality. I got a chocolate cake with plain whipped cream several months ago, and it was one of the best cakes I ever bought. They do buttercream too. You're looking at a 25-30 minute ride from Englewood, but it's an easy ride. 4 West to 208 North, take the second Goffle Road exit, and make a left on Lafayette.
And are you saying you weren't impressed with Patisserie St. Michel?!? Look, I know Andre is very expensive and doesn't put out a huge variety of stuff each day, but the man makes the best cakes and pastries I have ever had. (Just Desserts comes pretty close though). You'd expect a seventy-something baker born, raised, and trained in France to know his craft.
Either one of these places is a great bet.
Haha, i will try St Michel's again. It was a while ago and i bought a few stuff but don't remember being good. By the way, the worst tasting bread I had was also in France...so not everything from France is great...though the best stuff i ate also come from France.
Will try Just dessets too...rich moist chocolate cake with tons of buttercream sounds so good now...
