Recently Saucy made these amazing Birthday Cake Truffles from the Momofuku Milk Bar online cookbook. They were top-notch and delicious and what Saucy liked the most about them was the imperfect nature of the finished product. Unlike perfect just-so cake pops, these are a little rough and uneven. Almost artsy, one might say.
After visiting the Momofuku Milk Bar in Toronto last month, Saucy is geared up to visit the flagship restaurant bakery this weekend in NYC. She's going to sample a few more of the goods and come home to replicate them. Brace yourselves, kids. It's going to be a parade of compost cookies, crack pie and Froot Loops meringues for a while around here.
Leaving today for New York City, Saucy is looking forward to seeing the city she hasn't visited in almost ten years and to reflect, as we all are, on the terrible events of 2001. She has plans to visit a dear blogging friend and some friends who relocated there a few years ago. Might she even squeeze in a visit with her Japanese sister, who Loopy visited on exchange in Tokyo last year? If the stars align, if the stars align.
New York City is one of the greatest places on earth. And they have fabulous bakeries. If you haven't been, you need to go. Tell them Saucy sent you.
