Two Little Red Hens Bakery
Two Little Red Hens is my go-to bakery for cakes. Located in the Upper East Side, it’s also pretty convenient for me to go to, so that might play into it as well.
Their cakes are just so scrumptious. And even when you think you are just way to full, you just think to yourself, OK, one more small slice.
My favorite of theirs is the Brooklyn Blackout. It’s dense and rich and heavenly and yes, I understand I have written about it before, but I’ve been eating a lot of Two Little Red Hens recently so it’s on my mind. The Brooklyn Blackout has chocolate cake, chocolate pudding and fudge frosting. Sometimes I just want to smash my face into it, except I feel like cake would go wasted that way.
For Dinne’s birthday I got her favorite which was chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, but I added a hazelnut praline filling. And then for her birthday gift I bought a second identical cake, but had them frost the words: DINNE’S CAKE, DON’T TOUCH on it. OMG, so freaking good.
For my uncle’s birthday, I opted for a Red Velvet cake and Cheesecake. OMG, so freaking good.
For my friend Grace’s birthday, I went with their peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes because she loves them. It’s really smart on their part to fill it with crunchy peanut butter, because that additional texture is fantastic. OMG, so freaking good.
I have also eaten their chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, Boston cream cake and chocolate pecan pie in between these birthdays. I’m starting to think that they put crack in their baked goods. Luckily, I may have some red velvet of theirs stashed in the kitchen.
