We had such a good time walking around the city and eating. We hope that you'll get to visit some of these spots one day!
First up, we visited Baked on Sunday, August 15th:
359 Van Brunt Street
Brooklyn, New York 11231
Baked. With all your accolades and press, we just had to try it for ourselves. Howard was skeptical. I was worried walking in because I had such high expectations.
Now that we have visited, what can we say? We're impressed. I am so happy that I have their cookbook and I'm looking forward to the next one (also check out the trailer). But first, let's look around the bakery:
After browsing, Howard and I bought a few treats to go:
I was given the honour of first bite. I ate the chocolate and vanilla cupcake first. I was jumping up and down to wave Howard over - he went to get a drink. I told him that he had to try the cupcake, especially the frosting. I was going to save the pistachio for later, but didn't. We ate the cupcakes back-to-back because of the frosting.
Seriously, the frosting is just amazing. It is light and fluffy and isn't too sweet.
Howard thinks it is the best frosting he's ever tried yet!!!
Another sure sign that we couldn't stop? Well, we generally try 1 or 2 items from each bakery we visit. Here, we found ourselves getting 4 delicious items! So hats off to Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. Please visit Toronto for your next book tour?
