Just in time for Valentine’s Day, and for all you single chocolate lovers waiting for that February 15th chocolate sale:

Salt Lake Magazine’s picks for the 5 Best Chocolate Cakes in Utah (and lovely plates to serve them on). You’re welcome!

Salt Lake Magazine’s Best Utah Chocolate Cakes

1. Tulie Bakery 

This is a true American layer cake—no fruit, no melting center, just layers of moist cake and icing (pictured above).

2. Cakes de Fleur.

These are some of my favorite cakes in the city‚incredible icing. There are some available in the case but it’s best to preorder. 

3. Whole Foods 

 A controversial choice, but I have always gotten extraordinary, very traditional chocolate cakes here.

4. Tuscany 

Only if you’re very brave or very large—this cake is a full 7 inches tall. 

5. Red Butte Cafe

A 3-layer cake with chocolate filling and icing.
