Cakes We try to keep a variety of 8″ cakes available in our display cases for immediate purchase, but we highly recommend placing cake orders at least 48 hours in advance–on popular weekends our baking schedule often fills up! We feature both “Classic” and “Deluxe” flavors, all of which are available in sizes ranging from 6″ rounds to full sheet cakes–please scroll down for a guide to sizing and pricing. All cakes are three layers. An inscription on your cake is always free! We also offer 2-layer gluten-free cakes in Raspberry Lemon, Very Vanilla, Chocolate on Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Brooklyn Blackout and Strawberry Fields (6″ round: $55; 8″ round: $65; larger sizes available). Please note that while these cakes are gluten-free, they are baked in a kitchen where wheat flour is used. Our buttercream-covered cakes should be eaten at room temperature–so please store them in the fridge but remove them 2-3 hours before serving to allow the buttercream to become soft and creamy. <p>Raspberry Lemon</p> + RASPBERRY LEMON Vanilla crème fraîche cake layered with raspberry Swiss meringue buttercream and lemon curd filling, covered with raspberry buttercream. <p>Hazelnut</p> + HAZELNUT Vanilla crème fraîche cake filled and frosted with hazelnut Swiss meringue buttercream and hazelnut praline, topped with a bittersweet chocolate glaze. <p>Very Vanilla</p> + VERY VANILLA Our moist vanilla crème fraîche cake filled and frosted with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream. <p>Chocolate on Vanilla</p> + CHOCOLATE ON VANILLA Vanilla crème fraîche cake with our rich Belgian chocolate buttercream filling and frosting. <p>German Chocolate</p> + GERMAN CHOCOLATE Chocolate cake layered with a rich coconut-pecan filling and frosted with Belgian chocolate ganache. <p>Cookies & Cream</p> + COOKIES & CREAM Chocolate cake filled and frosted with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream and chocolate cookie crumble, topped with a bittersweet chocolate glaze. <p>Pistachio Praline <strong>* Deluxe *</strong></p> + PISTACHIO PRALINE * Deluxe * Vanilla crème fraîche cake filled and frosted with pistachio Swiss meringue buttercream and pistachio praline. <p>Bananas Foster <strong>* Deluxe *</strong></p> + BANANAS FOSTER * Deluxe * Banana cake layered with cinnamon rum Swiss meringue buttercream, caramel and walnuts. <p>Salted Caramel</p> + SALTED CARAMEL Chocolate cake layered with salted caramel and frosted with Belgian chocolate ganache. <p>Coconut Cloud</p> + COCONUT CLOUD Vanilla crème fraîche cake layered with coconut pastry cream and frosted with coconut Swiss meringue buttercream and shredded coconut. <p>Chocolate Malt</p> + CHOCOLATE MALT Chocolate cake layered and frosted with malted milk buttercream and crushed chocolate-covered malt balls, topped with malt balls. <p>Liliko’i (Passion Fruit)</p> + LILIKO’I (PASSION FRUIT) Vanilla crème fraîche cake layered with passion fruit curd and frosted with a light coconut Swiss meringue buttercream. <p>Chocolate on Chocolate</p> + CHOCOLATE ON CHOCOLATE Our moist chocolate cake with a rich Belgian chocolate buttercream filling and frosting. <p>Red Velvet</p> + RED VELVET Our moist red velvet cake filled and frosted with cream cheese frosting. <p>Peanut Butter</p> + PEANUT BUTTER Chocolate cake filled and frosted with peanut butter Swiss meringue buttercream and topped with a bittersweet chocolate glaze. <p>Dulce de Leche</p> + DULCE DE LECHE Vanilla crème fraîche cake frosted and filled with a light caramel Swiss meringue buttercream and toasted sliced almonds. <p>Mott Street Cannoli <strong>* Deluxe *</strong></p> + MOTT STREET CANNOLI * Deluxe * Vanilla cake layered and frosted with our cannoli cream filling (ricotta & mascarpone cheeses with a touch of orange zest & rum) and sprinkled with semisweet chocolate chips. <p>Brooklyn Blackout</p> + BROOKLYN BLACKOUT Chocolate cake layered with rich chocolate pudding and frosted with Belgian chocolate ganache and chocolate cake crumbs. <p>Black Forest <strong>* Deluxe *</strong></p> + BLACK FOREST * Deluxe * Chocolate cake layered with kirsch brandy-marinated Morello cherries and crème légère, frosted with dark Belgian chocolate ganache. <p>Strawberry Fields</p> + STRAWBERRY FIELDS Vanilla crème fraîche cake filled and frosted with strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream. <p>Liz Lemon</p> + LIZ LEMON Vanilla crème fraîche cake layered with organic lemon curd and frosted with black currant Swiss meringue buttercream. <p>Mocha Latte</p> + MOCHA LATTE Chocolate cake filled and frosted with coffee Swiss meringue buttercream, topped with chocolate-covered espresso beans. <p>Carrot</p> + CARROT Spiced organic carrot cake with pecans, layered and covered with cream cheese frosting. <p>Gluten-free</p> + GLUTEN-FREE Two-layer gluten-free cakes are available in Raspberry Lemon, Very Vanilla, Chocolate on Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Brooklyn Blackout and Strawberry Fields.
