For Unusual Flavors and Modern Design: Baked NYC

There are many places to get your standard birthday cake, and then there’s Baked. With locations in Tribeca and Red Hook, you can order cakes as classic or unique as you can dream up.  For the somewhat adventurous there’s Aunt Sassy’s Pistachio which is three layers of pistachio white cake, frosted and filled with vanilla honey buttercream, and topped with toasted pistachios.  For traditionalists that know their kids love color, check out the Funfetti. A guaranteed hit.
