Milk Bar was one of the first to feature “naked” layer cakes—cakes that have little or no icing around their sides to better showcase the deliciousness that lies within. The result is visually stunning and hard to resist. Milk Bar cakes come in 6-inch & 10-inch sizes (gluten-free versions are available), and they always feature a seasonal or holiday-inspired cake that never fails to delight. This is the cool big sister of traditional layer cakes, that will leave a delicious impression.

They are famous for their 7-layer cakes in flavors including chocolate, coconut, red velvet and carrot cake. The best seller? Their 7-layer caramel cake. Each 9-inch round cake serves 10 -14. Gluten-free cake options are available.

A mini 6-inch birthday cake serves four

Another favorite on Oprah’s list, We Take the Cake is an absolute “go to” to send wow-worthy cakes and cupcakes. When I think cake, my first though is the frosting: please, please let me get a slice with the big frosted roses on it. The more elaborate the frosting, the better. Apparently We Take the Cake knows my type and pipes elaborate cupcakes that make my heart swoon. They are also famous for their bundt cakes. The Key Lime Bundt cake (7-inch round, serves 6) is one of Oprah’s favorites.

One thing: Pay attention to the cake sizes. A six-inch cake may look good in photos, but they are pretty small IRL. If you are looking for a larger cake, consider Caroline’s 9-inch cakes above.

Daisy Cakes, Pauline, South Carolina

Four Layer Carrot Cake

Daisy Cakes Best-Selling 4 Layer Carrot Cake

Coconut Layer Cake

A 4-inch High Coconut Layer Cake

Daisy Cakes, created by Kim Nelson, came to national attention when Kim appeared on Shark Tank. Barbara Corcoran “bit” and invested in Kim’s vision for Daisy Cakes, and has since taken the bakery from sales in the 4 figures a month to sales of 6 figures per month. That’s a lot of cake (and happy customers)!

Kim bakes her cakes from recipes passed down to her from her great aunt Daisy and her grandmother who themselves were baking from recipes handed down for generations. Kim says her cakes are made from all-natural ingredients and lots of “Southern love.”

Current offerings include: Red Velvet cake, Chocolate Layer Cake, Lemon, Coconut, and their best-selling no-nuts-added Carrot Cake which is made with a pound of carrots, golden raisins and real cream cheese frosting.

The cakes are 8 1/2 inches round and 4 inches high. They are said to serve 16 – 20 people. Uh, Ms. Daisy has never been to my house. This size cake may feed 16 genteel ladies at a baby shower, but in my house, I’d estimate it would top out at 8 servings due to the generous proportions that my family thinks is “normal.” Not me of course! Oh, just a sliver for me…and please don’t notice when my sliver is gone that my fork is headed to your plate.

Cakes from Red Truck Bakery, Virginia

We have enjoyed and sent nearly every one of Red Truck Bakery’s cakes: Alma Hackney’s Rum Cake, the Almond Cake with Amaretto (so moist, so good), the Triple Chocolate Cake (still getting compliments), the Shenandoah Apple Cake (deep sigh of joy). Also, these cakes are full-sized, which we appreciate.

A beloved rural bakery in Virginia, Red Truck Bakery is located in a renovated 1921 Esso filling station at Courthouse Square in Old Town Warrenton, Virginia. It’s a magnet for folks who are happy to drive for miles to enjoy their cakes, pies, and coffee.

The Washington Post writes: On a typical day, county judges, fox hunters and maybe actor Robert Duvall will be sipping Red Truck coffee at the 12-foot table salvaged from a 19th-century Virginia barn.
