Cheap Eat of the Week: the b’day cake truffles from Momofuku Milk Bar Toronto

After months of rumours (and months of denying those rumours), Momofuku announced the opening of its newest Toronto venture last week: Milk Bar. As the uber popular dessert branch of the Momofuku empire, Milk Bar boasts multiple locations in New York City, all of them supplied by the Milk Bar bakery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (where Toronto’s supply also comes from — it’s shipped in by UPS).

The small shop, located on the second floor of Momofuku Toronto, stretches 6.5 feet by 12.5 feet, and only six to eight shoppers are allowed in at one time (it’s tight in there!). Those who make it inside can stock up on the famous crack pie ($6 per slice), compost cookies ($2 each, 6 for $11 or 12 for $22) or cake truffles ($4 for a pack of three, $16 for a dozen).

Our cheap eat this week: the b’day cake truffles. Inspired by the Funfetti rainbow birthday cake her mom used to make, Christina Tosi — Milk Bar’s chef and founder — summarizes the Timbit-sized wonders as a “guilty pleasure; what you do behind closed doors.”

They start with already-baked rainbow cake that’s crumbled up, blended, mixed with vanilla-scented milk and dipped in white chocolate, then they’re finished in a rainbow cake crumble. It’s like childhood in a bite.

Momofuku Milk Bar, 190 University Ave. (second floor), 855-333-MILK
