I loathe birthday cake—too sweet, to sticky-icky. But Butta’ Cake’s birthday cake is a thing of joy—no matter what age you’re turning.

(See my review of Butta’ Cakes luscious cupcakes)

For my hubby’s birthday, I ordered a chocolate cake with mocha icing. We’re big fans of the cupcakes from this small East End bakery located in Greenport, LI, but I wasn’t sure their baker could pull off a standard size cake.

What made this birthday cake so outstanding?

The icing: Not too sweet, but sinfully rich. And they must apply it with a fire hose. If you’re an icing freak, this is the birthday cake for you.

The cake: Usually, the cake layers in your run of the mill birthday cake are too dry and/or cloyingly sweet. Butta Cakes’ devil’s food layers are deeply chocolaty and moist.

They’ll do just about any frosting/cake combo you want. These birthday cakes are worth the trip. In fact, why not order one, then stop at on of the North Fork’s wineries for a little vino to top off your celebration?

What are your favorite bakeries for purchasing birthday cakes?
