Any German Bakeries left in NYC or Long Island?

tractarian | Jun 1, 2011 07:33 PM

After reminiscing with family over Ebinger's (blackout cake, mocha cake, Othellos, etc.), we were wondering if anyone knew of a German bakery left in either the 5 boroughs (most likely Queens) or even out on Long Island that made decent mocha cake, blackout cake, Black Forest Cake, bienenstich, or fastnacht? I know that Bauer's in Middle Village used to have these items, but I heard they shut down. It is a shame they closed down before I managed to get out there. I am also looking for a bakery that makes good cakes with REAL buttercream. Not artificial buttercream, which is what I got when I ordered a cake from Leske's in Bay Ridge (although their coffee cakes are still good, as was their sachertorte), but REAL buttercream. Glaser's is rumored to have real buttercream, but I am open to other suggestions. We are at a loss here. Or if anyone has recipes for a good Ebinger's style German Mocha Cake, that would also be good.
