1. Pastry Art Bake Shoppe — Birmingham, AL 

To find the best chocolate cake your taste buds will ever know, one must make a trip to Birmingham, a city that is in the middle of being re-born.

This isn’t your old Birmingham, though it still clings to its Dixie roots. While Birmingham is still considered a southern city, Alabama’s largest city is also beginning to take on a cosmopolitan feel, as evident by the cool neighborhoods sprouting up all over town.

Birmingham’s suburbs, too, are experiencing the “coolness” factor that is slowly taking over the core city, and that can be felt in suburban Homewood, which is where you will find Pastry Art Bake Shoppe, a cool bakery that is famous for their “baby bites.”

Those “baby bites” are like Pringles except in cake form. Once you’ve had one, you just can’t get enough, and you will find that, in just one sitting, you would have devoured the entire box. Of course, being that Chocolate Cake Day is fast approaching, we have to recommend the chocolate baby bite, which has a rich dark chocolate buttercream frosting that will have you floating on cloud nine.

Of course, Pastry Art Bake Shoppe also has a chocolate cake that is to die for and should be the one if you have friends or family that are also chocolate cake lovers. No matter if you get the baby bites or the full cake, you won’t go wrong with either at Pastry Art Bake Shoppe.
