If you're wandering around Uptown and craving something sweet, you need to stop by Make My Cake, home to one of NYC's best slices of red velvet cake. Not only does Make My Cake serve up the best tasting baked goods in the neighborhood, but the cozy atmosphere makes it an excellent spot to chill for a minute or two while you enjoy your desserts in peace. You will get addicted to their cookies, pies, cupcakes, cake pops, cobblers, whoopie pies, and cake slices, so alternate between the 116th and 135th locations, so you look like you're only buying decadent sweets twice a month and not once a week.
