If you’re like me, half birthdays are celebrated with cake for breakfast. Thus, the recent visit to one of my regular NYC spots, Billy’s Bakery. I have a few favorite cakes in the city and Billy’s chocolate is among them. I usually go chocolate frosting, but today vanilla was the only option and that worked just fine. What sets Billy’s apart is threefold: they have a near-perfect cake to frosting ratio. I’ve never had a slice – chocolate or otherwise – that wasn’t just the right balance of moist and yet crumbly. And their frosting is sweet, but not overly so, and creamy rather than the crunchy, sugary texture that some bakeries use. If you’re looking for a classic slice of chocolate cake, Billy’s is hard to beat.
