I don’t post “What’s Cooking Wednesday” quite as often I would like these days, so whenever I do, I like to share something really cool that I’ve cooked or baked. To be honest, despite it being called WCW, I much prefer baking to cooking! Cooking (during the week, anyway) always seems like a chore; a task that needs to be done to put food on the table for your family. Baking isn’t a necessity by any means, so I feel like I get to choose baking instead of being “forced” to cook if that makes any sense! And lately, our cooking meals haven’t been super exciting. We’ve been using Blue Apron to take all the guess work out of meal planning and truly love it – they have simple recipes with healthy ingredients that are the perfect portion for two adults.
Anywho, I was digging back through the archives of some of my adventures and found these images from a cake I made about two years ago and knew I had to share it!! I have always wanted to visit Milk Bar in NYC, but knew even if I got there, there would be no need for a giant cake! I found a recipe for this cake on, where else, Pinterest and knew I had to give it a try. The results are below and yes, it tastes as good as it looks! Plus it’s so pretty!
Momofuku Milk Bar Birthday Cake
Recipe: Sheri Silver
Notes: This is definitely a super intimidating recipe when you first open the website simply due to length. I promise, it’s not as daunting as it seems! Most of them are very simple, you just need to prepare the time it takes to work through each one without rushing! I made this cake in a few hours one Friday when I was off work. The author also mentions that you can break up the recipe in a few different steps if you prefer to split it up. When making this cake, I followed the recipe to a “t”. The only thing I would change next time around is the level of salt — I thought overall, it was just too much and would prefer to lower it a bit. Otherwise, it’s a perfect recipe!
