Momofuku: Wedding Cake Tasting

image
Last night we decided we would try out the Momofuku Wedding Cake sample kit so we can finally order the cake for our wedding, which is around the corner. Over the past two years we have pretty much made it a ritual of bringing their cakes to every birthday party we attend, something about the cakes makes even the most boring parties seem tolerable. We have had everything from Birthday Cake, Chocolate Malt Cake, German Chocolate Cake, Apple Pie (which is one of the best things I have ever had)… We also bought my two little cousins classes at Milkbar to teach them, and my fiancé, hienz make their cakes and truffles (Read My Article, it was the best idea ever).

So we bought three of their sampler packs ($25/each) and we invited over some family to help make the decision. The package comes with 12 flavors, which included: apple pie cake, banana cake, birthday cake, chocolate malt cake, chocolate chip cake, german chocolate jimbo cake, dulce de leche cake, mint cookies n’ cream cake, pineapple upside down cake, pistachio cake, pretzel cake, strawberry-lemon cake. Below are some of our favorites, which I think you should try either for a wedding cake – or their 6″ and 10″ cakes.

pretzel cake: malted pretzel crumbs, stout ganache, burnt honey frosting.

pistachio cake: lemon curd, pistachio frosting, milk crumbs.

pineapple upside down: coconut cake, pineapple upside down frosting, yellow cake crumbs, cherry-buttermilk soak.

banana cake: banana cream, hazelnut crunch, gianduja fudge.

apple pie cake: cheesecake filling, apple compote, pie crumbs.

lemon cheesecake, pickled strawberry jam, milk crumbs.

Momofuku Classes: Best Gift You Can Get Your Significant Other (Trust Me)

So for Christmas I bought my fiancé, and my two little cousins, classes to goto Momofuku Milk Bar. Unless you have been living under a rock, I will assume you know what Momofuku is – if not, I guess I can try to explain. Momofuku was created by David Chang, and their Milk Bar is probably one of the best creations known to man. They take classic desert items, and put their own crazy twist to it, and the end product is fucking amazing. So wouldn’t it be nice to have these snacks whenever you like – thats where my idea formed. BUY THIS CLASS for your girlfriend, wife, mistress, someone else’s wife … JUST DO IT. At the end of the day, you will be the one reaping all the benefits.

The classes will cost you $95/per person and I definitely suggest grabbing the Milk Bar Cookbook, so she can make these items whenever she (you) would like. Just in time for Valentines Day, I just gave you one of the best options ever. Also, even if she wants you to go with here – its not that bad, and they serve Brooklyn Lager during the class. The minute we got done with the class, both my fiancé and cousins were going on about how they can’t wait to make crack pie, cakes, truffles …etc.

Go to their link, Classes @ Momofuku Milk Bar, and look at their schedule and I can guarantee she will be extremely happy, but more importantly you are the true winner. The classes are in their Williamsburg Location, and last about 2 hours.
