Where to eat the best cake in NYC?? Christina Tosi's Momofuku Milk Bar.

Momofuku Milk Bar

Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past few years, surely you have heard of Momofuku Milk Bar, the bakery-inspired dessert branch of David Chang’s  Momofuku Restaurant Group.

In this delicious and sweet-smelling bakery you can get a slice of pie that is so addicting, it’s called “CRACK PIE”!

I was invited to a take a class at Momofuku Milk Bar’s main facility in Williamsburg, where I would learn from the best of the best!

Christina Tosi would be teaching us, “How to Stack A 6 inch Cake,”  from her Bake the Book series.

Master Pastry Chef in Charge, Christina Tosi, welcomed us to her home away from home, as we prepped ourselves for the adventure.

Tosi is a delightful and charming young woman who deserves every bit of praise she has garnered.

Class begins with, the tying of the SHMATTAH (Yiddish for rag). After tying the perfect bows on everyone’s heads, it’s time for selfies, of course.

Now that everyone is prepared, it’s time for some serious cake stacking.

Each of the wanna be bakers, has their own personal baking station, fully equipped with everything needed, to prepare a delicious dessert masterpiece.

Messes can be so much fun, especially cleaning up the bits of cake by putting them directly into our mouths.

My Strawberry Lemon 6 layer cake was “out of this world” delicious… AND I made it myself…almost.
