Another beauty! Post from The Boroughbred.

✨NEW✨ STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE from City Cakes 🍓🍰✨ This new sweet treat is thin layers of light ‘Heavenly White Cake’ (similar to Angel Food), filled with layers of fresh strawberry compote and vanilla bean buttercream frosting! 🍓 Very different than the other City Cakes slices in terms of texture and flavor. I loved the combo of the fresh strawberries and City Cakes frosting (some of the very best frosting out there). The cake part is much airier and lighter than their other cakes. That coupled with the fresh fruit *almost* makes it feel “guilt-free” 😉 Pro tip: Best served chilled! Thanks so much to City Cakes for treating me to this new beauty! 💕

It was a pleasure & an honor to work with Axis communications yet again this time photographing their NYC grand opening.
Congratulations
to Axis communications on opening a new office in Midtown Manhattan! P. S. Look at that cake 😍 by City Cakes
Thank you, City Cakes, for the insanely delicious strawberry-champagne birthday cake!
What a hit!
I only wish I had a good photo of it....as I didn't see it until it was brought out.
Beautiful day for a Trans Pride Dark Horse Ube Sammie or Rainbow Ube Doodle! $2 from each one of our City Cakes collab ice cream sandwiches sold goes to Human Rights Campaign 💙🤍💖

Due to high NYC Pride demand, we will be accepting reservations for indoor and outdoor tables this Sunday, June 27th! Please TEXT us at 833.354.7744 to save your seat 🏳️‍🌈

PLUS you can grab our Rainbow Ube Doodle collab with City Cakes which $2 from each one sold will be supporting our friends at Human Rights Campaign. Thanks for the great pic ❤️
Just a suggestion: Since you do digital check out in the store, can you add a question (opt in): "would you like utensils or not". I got home and opened my bag to find two sets (I had purchased two slices of cake)...which I didn't need. That's more for the land fill and less for your bottom line. Thanks! (Still haven't decided which cake I liked better.)😋
I made these Rainbow Ube Ice Cream Sandwiches with Duncan Hines Classic White Cake Mix. This pride, I'm celebrating with a Rainbow Ube Ice Cream Sandwich inspired by my favorite cake shop in NYC, City Cakes! Happy Pride! 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🌈🖤🤎
