Buying a nice birthday cake can get pricey, especially when you want to eschew the 90-percent-frosting, 10-percent-yellow-carpet that passes for a pre-made cake at your local Foodtown. A reader, who will remain anonymous in case there is some birthday surprising afoot, tells us she has “zero baking ability, so DIY is not an option,” so she’s looking for n affordable alternative in the Williamsburg or Greenpoint area for her boyfriend’s birthday. And since his family will be eating the cake, it has to be at least halfway decent, without costing an arm and a leg.
Who’s got a suggestion? There’s cake involved here, people, so let’s take this seriously.
