Rispoli Pastry Shop In Ridgefield

It sure was - and then some! Deliciously moist cake with alternating vanilla and chocolate custard, buttercream frosting and toasted sliced peanuts on all sides. Just perfect! Recommend fully!

Mombassa Spice

I've heard that they are available in Newark, in some of the Portuguese stores...

O... M... G! Best cake ever! I looked beautiful and tasted delicious! Thanks for all the recommendations! Now I must go back and try the lobster tails...

Good Burger Milkshake Place Suggestion

This might still be far, but I had a GREAT burger at a place called The Deck (I think), near Penn, on Sansom St. My burger was done superbly well and the service was more than friendly and accommodating.

Thanks for the tip. I've heard about a few places in Ridgewood that I've been meaning to try and will add this one to the list.

If you feel like driving up to northern NJ, stop by Bobby's Burger Place in Paramus. Pretty good, and I always get mine "crunchfied"! Also, Westwood has a great place for stuffed burgers called Iron Horse. They have killer pickles and slaw, on the house, as well!

Rispoli Pastry Shop In Ridgefield

Hi all,
In my quest to find my husband THE Italian creme cake of his youth (see http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/865073), I came across Rispoli Pastry Shop in Ridgefield. Has anyone tried their cake? I've come across several mentions of their lobster tail but not much about cakes...

Thanks!!

Italian creme birthday cake?

No - definitely no cannoli cream... Something with buttercream, for sure

Italian creme birthday cake?

Hi all,
I'm throwing my husband a surprise birthday party and would like to order what he calls fondly an "Italian creme birthday cake." Now, I have no idea what that means or where to get it! He grew up outside of Philly and his parents - both Italians - would get him one of these in South Philly every year.
Any ideas? I'm in northern Jersey (Teaneck area) but willing to travel.
Thanks!
