  1. I like Kaff's bakery in Brooklyn. Their cakes that are on display are ok, but their special order cakes are excellent. They'll pretty much do any cake/filling/frosting combo. They made a beautiful Elmo cake for my daughter's birthday last year

    1. For pareve desserts, I really like Susan Sez ( Not only do their cakes not taste pareve but they also have great customer service.

      1. If you had time, I would order from Straus's bakery in Brooklyn. They may deliver. Their cakes are sublime. They have a website. Otherwise, Butterflake bakery in Teaneck.

        1. re: cappucino

          Straus! Can't blv I forgot about them. Their cakes are delicious and they do beautiful work for parties

        2. Prime Butcher Baker makes great parve cakes - they're in Manhattan, on 2nd ave between 81st and 82nd. In Brooklyn, you could try Ostrovitsky's on Avenue J and East 12, Kaff's on Avenue M and East 19th, Presser's on Avenue M and East 18th, Chiffon's on Avenue P and East 3rd?

          1. Acme Kosher Bakery at their supermarket in Clifton, NJ
