Fancy Cake Week: Lady M

Oh, what a beautiful day yesterday!  Perfect day to walk over to Lady M near Bryant Park and indulge in afternoon cake.  Everyone had a piece, plus 2 more to just try.  They are known for the green tea crepe.IMG_7797

I went with almond as my main one.  And a chocolate to share.   I’m a sucker for almond.  Lady M does a great job.  Very light.  I almost feel like I didn’t eat cake!

Fancy Cake Week: Harbs

Harbs, a Japanese bakery, opened in Chelsea in January.  We’ve been meaning to try it for months and finally made it.  Mark made the walk there Sunday and picked us up a piece.  One piece.  Because it was $10.  They put a lot of care into the packaging and presentation.  It was light, it was tasty.  Is it my favorite slice? No, I’m a carrot cake girl at heart.  I wonder if I can’t appreciate the delicate flavors, the preparation, the ceremony (they show you the piece they are about to cut).  The place was busy, though.

Maybe we need to try one more time.  I’m always willing to give a dessert another try.  I’ve designated this fancy cake week because we are making a trip to Lady M tomorrow afternoon…
