Need a great cake!

I need a delicious birthday cake for the end of December. I am looking for something fresh that tastes homemade, not necessarily something that just looks pretty. I like store-bought cakes, but most have that "been sitting in a commercial refrigerator" taste.

I have tried Lulu's in Scarsdale, but the quality of their buttercream has gone downhill - it now tastes like you're eating a stick of butter (and to be clear, I LOVE butter and buttercream more than anything!)

Riviera in Ardsley tastes fresh and the cakes are beautiful, but they aren't life-changing. I don't like Homestyle in Peekskill at. all.

Any others that I should consider? I have heard reviews of Sweet Lisa's in Cos Cob, and Alibethcakes in Sleepy Hollow. I'm leaning towards the latter since it's located in my home town!

Thanks in advance!
