Yep, it is that time of year again (my BIRTHDAY!) and I need a CAKE!!! 2 years ago (based on suggestions from my dear Chowhound friends), I got a strawberry shortcake from Vicki Lees. It was ok but not mind-blowing. Last year I was in Paris for my birthday and well......the cake I ate there was YUM! This year, I am curious about the cakes at Lakota Bakery. Their cookies are AMAZING. Are their cakes just as fabulous? And if you have had cake from Lakota, what kind did you get?

Any other cake suggestions are appreciated. The only thing I really dislike is shredded coconut and artificial colors/flavorings.

Prefer a bakery in Cambridge/Somerville/Arlington/Lexington/Belmont/Watertown.

Thanks in advance. Drool.
