I need a cake for this coming weekend and I although I love chocolate, I don't want an overly sweet cake. Nadler's seems to have so many options and they all sound yummy!! Can anyone comment on the following cakes:

Black Forest
Amaretto
Candied Almond Crunch
Fresh Fruit

Or if you have any other recommendations, please do tell!

The only cakes I've had from Nadler's are their famous strawberries and whipped cream cake (not sure the actual name) and their Tres Leches Cake.
They have the best Tres Leches Cake I've ever had... I think it's the best cake I've ever had in my life, period. It is amazing. I can't even tell you. It has become the holy grail of Tres Leches Cakes and causes me to be disappointed every time I eat a Tres Leches Cake from anywhere else. It's so amazing. It's so flight and fluffy and moist, and not overly sweet. I've served it to friends many times and they oggle over it.

Not sure if Nadlers is your final decision but Costco has a pretty darn good cake.

Black Forest is good. Whatever you order just make sure they will do it with the whip cream and not frosting. TXtrkgrl is right: Costco has nice selection, there too you can request the whip cream in place of frosting.
What about nice, fresh made Tiramitsu from Paletta's?

OK, you convinced me. I've never even had Tres Leches Cake (what exactly are the 3 milks they use????) but after your description, I'm in. I love Nadler's--I bought a coffee cake ring there that was 100% better than the crap HEB sells. It cost more, but every bite was worth it. They have really nice sandwiches, too.

Thanks for your input everyone. I'm not a fan of tres leches cake but DMARIE123, you convinced me to try it from Nadler's in the future (maybe for Thanksgiving).

I agree, Costco has some delicious cakes but we ALWAYS get Costco cakes for events so we wanted to try something different this time. I went ahead and ordered the Black Forest which has the whipped cream icing.

We always get them from Costco too, but.......... my daughter is having a party this weekend and she requested cup cakes from HEB I thought I raised her better than that

She was at a party last weekend and apparently the boy had cupcakes and my dd said those were what she wanted. Come to find out they were from HEB. I was kinda looking forward to my Costco cake

How do Nadler's cakes compare to cakes from The Cake Shop? The price and selection seem to be similar.

Bowie.....I can't answer to Nadler's but Le Cake in Olmos Park has the BEST buttercream icing in the universe! We used to just stop in when they were on Broadway and get their day old cup cakes for $1.50 and they were still completely fresh and yummy. I never did like their chocolate, however, but anything else is just incredible. They have become an order ahead only bakery because they just don't have time to bake daily extras.

Sapphire....I' ve never tried to make a Tres Leches cake, but my daughter had a friend who's parents had a bakery on Blanco that catered them all over town to different restaurants. They said they had regular milk, evaporated milk and condensed milk......add in whipping cream, and that sounds like Quatro Leches to me! It's so moist you practically have to eat it with a spoon....really moist like cake and whipped creams sort of layered. I can't eat one today because we honestly overloaded with TLC "connections". But if you have never had a good one, you'll probably even love a bad one! (not sure such a thing exists)

So...I've moved on......not sure what....just anything but TLC.
