There are lots of incredible bakeries in NYC, but when I'm truly looking to impress I head to Lady M Cake Boutique for her dazzling array of cakes and pastries. I've been obsessed with their wondrous Mille Crepe for years but the other offerings as just as fabulous like the Gateau aux Marrons and Strawberry Mille Feuille.
This towering mass has layers of strawberries, whipped cream, sponge cake and strawberry jam all sandwiched between flaky, buttery pastry. The only challenge is getting a bite of everything at once.
