Augusta decided early on she was going to get me the infamous funfetti Milk Bar cake. I have had it once before and it was DELICIOUS. It was one of the best cakes I had ever had. It's all over Instagram too and needless to say I couldn't have been more thrilled with her choice.

3. Butter & Scotch Cake

Birthday Cake, $50, Butter & Scotch

If you want EXTRA sprinkles because it's your birthday and you can, get a Butter & Scotch cake. Just like the cake says "Yas Queen!"

4. Explosion Cake

Explosion Cake, $150, Flour Shop

Flour Shop is know for having cakes that explode with sprinkles, and well magic. If you love that idea of rainbow and a surprise center, we think this is a perfect option for ya!

5. Cookie Cake

Cookie Cake, Insomnia Cookies

If you think there is nothing better in the world than a hot chocolate chip cookie with milk; Insomnia Cookies make cookie cakes. Yes, you read that right. We personally love going there, choosing our cookie flavor. But we didn't even think about getting the ooey gooey cookies in cake form. Order this and extra milk or ice-cream on the side.

6. Salted Caramel Pretzel Cake

Salted Caramel Pretezel, $70.50, Morgenstern's

There is no going wrong with an ice-cream cake, especially in the hot NYC summer heat! Are we right? Augusta and I have had ice-cream from Morgensterns and it was some of the best we've ever had. Truly! We knew when we saw they made ice-cream cakes, we had to include them into this post. The three flavors are Salted Caramel Pretzel Cake, Strawberry Vanilla Cake, and last but not certainly least Green Tea Pistachio Chocolate Cake.

These cakes are great for anytime really, it doesn't have to be your birthday! Either way, cheers to you!!
