Cake Spade’s phenomenal selection of baked treats might leave your head spinning, so we’ll go ahead and recommend its most interesting creation: the strawberry tofu cheesecake. This specialty cheesecake is lighter and less sweet than the ones you’re probably familiar with, and features a jelly topping with fresh strawberries encased within.
