would like to plug the Keefer Court chinese bakery at the intersection of 4th street/cedar ave/riverside ave in the west bank nabe by the U and not far from downtown. my wife bought a humongous 12 inch birthday cake today and i liked it. a wonderful fresh cream exterior and a delicate kind of like a sponge cake inside-- a lot less sweet than typical American style cakes but very enjoyable IMO. fruit pieces on top of the cake and inside. according to the wife, this is their only cake, also available in a smaller size and as a sheet cake. perhaps they can offer a sample. this place also makes various chinese style buns-- pork buns in 2 styles and curry beef buns among others.they have been around for a long time.
