Desserts by David Glass has a tasting and sale going on today and tomorrow (yesterday, too, but that won't do you any good). You can taste as much as you want of several different cakes and then buy at steep discounts. For instance, I bought a 10-inch chocolate truffle cake for $10. A 6-inch version sells for $60 online through Zabar's in New York!
I think the sale cakes may be slightly imperfect, but the sample chocolate truffle cake I tasted was pretty damn good. Not life-altering by any means, but well worth it at that price. I didn't care for the other cakes as much, but others may feel differently. The cakes are sold frozen, so you can stock up.
