Buying a "Carousel Bakery" cake for Uncles 88th b-day. Oprah has a favorite but what's yours? Pls help, b-day Tues...

Snowed in and won't be able to make Uncle's b-day this year but still want to make sure he has a cake for his special day. In all honesty, will be sending this to him and just wanted to know your favorite cake of theirs or which ones have you had and your thoughts in general on this bakery.

Usually my Uncle is in Florida by now for his b-day but this yr he's been sick and still stuck up North. I'm down to the wire as his b-day is on Tuesday.

I had planned to send from bakery in Florida that I've used before but shipping rates were about as much as the cake so decided to look at other options closer to home and remembered seeing something about this bakery on "Oprah's Favorite Things" a few yrs ago . She raved about their red velvet cake. He's not really a red velvet fan at least that I know of so I'm thinking of going with the chocolate and vanilla mousse cake. Has anyone had this or any other mousse cakes of theirs before? Supposibly, this is one of a few that "Ess a Bagel" sells. Hate sending something I haven't had myself first but "Hounds" I trust your opinions so please help if you can. I really appreciate all your help as always.
Many thanks.

These cakes are carried by a lot of NY markets and restaurants including Zabars, Grace's Market Place, Ess a Bagel and more. Bergdorf has even served their cakes that's why I'm posting here and not under General Topic Boards.
