For my twins' first birthday, I was lucky enough to stumble upon Sensational Bites in Lakeview, mainly because I live a few blocks away. So delicious was that cake that it's become a birthday tradition. And an after-school-reward tradition and a we-need-a-cookie tradition and I-should-bring-a-dessert-but-don't-want-to-bake tradition. Well, you get the point.

For birthdays, go for the vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. The peanut butter or key lime pie and over-sized slices of individually cut carrot cake are always a hit to bring for sweet endings to dinner parties. The colorful mini-cupcakes will bring a smile to any toddler's face without overdoing it.

Too sinful for words, and definitely geared toward the younger palate, is the Dirt Cup: chocolate cake layered with a truffle filling and gummy worms topped with its signature buttercream flower. Vegans will always find a cupcake choice, while brownie lovers will delight in finding every flavor possible.

Bottom line? No matter what your taste, if it's sweet, you'll find it here.
