Pastry cream blended with whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and three layers of chocolate cake. Meet the Daisy Cake ($7.50) from Blackhound Bakery. The size suggests a mini-celebration for two, or a particularly rich celebration for one. I am rather fond of Blackhound's buttercream, used lavishly on this cake—positively decadent and smooth through and through. The cake itself is a bit on the dry side, but cream, in no less than three forms, plays the starring role.
