I love coconut cake. And Cousin John's in Park Slope knows how to do it right. Layers of velvety cake, rich buttery frosting and a tons of coconut make this one of the best versions in the city. You can buy it by the slice or the entire cake. But guaranteed one bite will lead to another.
There is lot more to Cousin John's than just coconut cake. The shiny glass counter reveals strawberry shortcake and black forest cake, tarts topped with fresh berries and black-and-white cookes. Oversized cream puffs get a dusting of powdered sugar, while red velvet cupcakes are piled high with frosting. Wedding cakes are also available.
Let's just say Cousin's got you covered.
