While in New York City, we had a chance to check out Lady M Confections and were we glad we did! We wanted to dine in and had to wait a couple minutes for a table, but it was well worth it!
Here's a picture of the boys sitting out front playing on their phones, waiting for a table. I swear, this picture wasn't posed. They just happened to be sitting the same way!
The cakes available that day displayed behind the glass from the front, they had the Lady M® Mille Crêpes, Marron Mille Crêpes, Strawberry Shortcake, Gâteau aux Marrons, Green Tea Mousse cake, Gateau Nuage, Checkers, Tarte Au Citron, Strawberry Mille Feuille, and Banana Mille Feuille. They also had individual cakes available as well! Nom nom nom!
A close up of their signature Lady M® Mille Crêpes. Constructed of more than twenty paper thin, hand-made crêpes layered with light and creamy vanilla custard!
What we ended up ordering, clockwise from the top, and individual Mont Blanc, chocolate croissant, Checkers, and the Lady M® Mille Crêpes!
A close up shot of our slice of Lady M® Mille Crêpes. We unanimously agreed that this is by far the best cake ever! I generally don't like custard, but the vanilla custard in the Mille Crêpes was absolutely divine. As well, even though I knew that there's more than twenty paper thin crêpes, before I bit into it I doubt that I'd be able to tell, but I was! The texture was absolutely wonderful! It's too bad they didn't have any dry ice, otherwise, we'd definitely bring some home.
Our slice of Checkers cake. A chocolate and vanilla sponge cake woven into the pattern of a checkerboard with a thin layer of fresh cream, covered with dark chocolate ganache. Yum! Checkers was good, but beside the Mille Crêpes it paled in comparison. I have to admit its not quite fair to compare the two, but all in all, we had an awesome time at Lady M's!
