This is a slice of opera cake from Balthazar Boulangerie.
This is a slice Mon Gateau Fine Bakery and Cafe.
The first bakery I decided to visit was Balthazar Boulangerie located at 80 Spring St, New York, NY 10012. The bakery had a very French style to it with multiple breads lining the walls on shelves and multiple pastries and cakes on display in glass cases. There were also baskets of baguettes as well as many pastry chefs working in plain sight of the customers. The second bakery I visited was the Mon Gateau Fine Bakery and Cafe located at 8101 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11209. The bakery in comparison to Balthazar, is a more modernized bakery with a section with glass cases lined with pastries and cakes which was followed by a section with a multitude of breads.
