Looking forward to your next birthday? Want a cake that is out of this word? If you think that celebrating your birthday in New York means you'll have to settle for a birthday cake from a grocery store, that's not the case. There are several restaurants which have specialty desserts (including cakes) that will make your special day in this very special city even more special.
If you're looking for really unique birthday cake experience, visit Serendipity 3 Restaurant, located at 225 East 60th Street in New York City. Here you can choose from several decadent cake offerings such as Chocolate Blackout Cake or Celestial Carrot Cake.
Serendipity 3 is also home to the Golden Opulence Sundae, which costs $1,000 and requires a 48-hour reservation notice. If you go there, see if you can spot anyone who actually ordered one of these.
Deliciosa Cakes in New York City
Deliciosa Cakes bakery specializes in all types of birthday cakes, from fancy to fun. Their selections include theme cakes such as superhero or favorite character cakes, as well as cakes that can be used at a formal birthday dinner.
If you're celebrating your birthday in Brooklyn, make sure you get a cake from Lords Bakery. Located at 2135 Nostrand Avenue, this bakery was the first one to offer "photocakes" on the East Coast.
This is a family-owned business that opens 365 days a year, from 5:00 AM until midnight. Their specialties include red velvet cake and, of course, their famous "photocakes." You're sure to find a birthday cake that will please you and the birthday celebrant, too.
In case you're wondering if you can find a birthday cake at "Schnitzer's Bakery" the one that was mentioned in a very popular '90s sitcom, you can't. "Schnitzer's" doesn't exist, but it was patterned after the real-life Royale Bake Shop on 72nd Street.
