Long Island Kosher Bakery

My 6 year old is having a birthday party at the JCC so we can only bring in kosher food. We need a cake. Does anyone have any recommendations of a kosher bakery in Long Island (Nassau) that makes delicious birthday cakes that are not too crazy expensive.

  1. If you're a member, and if your local Costco has a kosher bakery, that would be my recommendation. Their cakes are dairy, but I assume that that would be OK for the JCC.

    1. fairway also has a kosher bakery and does birthday cakes- their strawberry shortcake is ridiculously good

      1. probably more expensive than the previous suggestions, but Sapienza in Elmont.

          I second this. Sapienza is delicious. Their stuff is all dairy, which should be fine for a birthday party.

            theres actually a groupon for sapienza, that you can use for a birthday cake

            its not up now, but its been back and forth and i bet if you check in a day or two itll be back

          2. Pearl's in Plainview/Woodbury, which is right near the Mid-Island Y if that's JCC you're going to. Bagel Boss may make cakes, I don't know. Lots of Stop and Shops in the area have kosher bakeries too.

            1. I think it is better to ask the particular JCC for a better description of "kosher." I am sure the JCC in the Five Towns would not accept Stop and Shop, but others might. The other suggestions would most likely be acceptable. It has been a very long time since I bought nursery school birthday cakes. Back then, we went to Custom Bakers in Island Park. Too bad they no longer exist. And they had great pies and challah as well.

                Most of the S&S bakeries which are certified, are certified by the KVH, which is a widely accepted hecksher.

                  I really have not looked lately, but the S &S bakeries near me on Long Island were not. kVH certified but from something in Monsey.
