It's National Chocolate Cake Day!

Pretty much everyone loves chocolate cake, right? Sinking your teeth into a decadent slice of moist cake slathered in the frosting of your choice … it really doesn’t get much better than that.

Treat yourself to a slice (or two) of chocolate cake from your favorite local bakery today. It’s a great moment of self care, and helps support small businesses. And we all know that Main Street businesses can use every penny right now.


Select from toothsome options located in our partner municipalities around the country:

La Baguette in Melrose Park, Illinois: A stunning selection of custom and retail cakes, plus pastries, including chocolate or course.

Shari’s Pie in Burlington, Washington: The Pacific Northwest is pie country, and Shari’s serves up a chocolate cream dream.

El Pastel Bakery in Kingsville, Texas: Knows as one of the best makers of pan dulce

Bake Erie in Erie County, Ohio: Pick up some old-school creme-filled chocolate cupcakes (and some milk, too!)

While you’re enjoying your first mouthful, consider how your can make life sweeter for local businesses. They're struggling to stay afloat and the last thing that a harried business owner needs to do is figure out how to navigate a municipal website to register their business or remit taxes.

Today's civic leaders need to be able to provide taxpayers with an online payment platform that's as easy to use as consumer-style tools. When you add Localgov to your site, your community is offering the business community a clear sign that you're on their side:

  • Offer taxpayers payment options that work for them (ACH drafts, credit, or debit) all processed safety
  • No more downloading forms, writing checks, and sticking stamps—it's all online, from filing to confirmation
  • Concierge-style customer care offered by our team of local-government experts

Learn how easy it is to add Localgov to your community's technology offerings. Because that chocolate cake will taste so much richer when you know you’ve done all you can to make sure your local businesses are set up for the future.
