Celebration of Vodka event was it's proximity to Bouchon Bakery, the bakery I desperately want to love. I've been going for years and always loved it, but the last few times haven't gone so great. Here's the latest.
Moniker and I left, we had to stop by Bouchon despite it being late in the day, and filled with food from the party. They had the Ho-Hos, the TKOs, but I saw a cupcake, a mint chocolate cupcake with gold. There was gold foil involved - I had to get it!!!! It looks so beautiful: little puffs of chocolate buttercream, a chocolate leaf, chocolate cake. The mint cream inside is similar to marshmallow cream in texture and perfectly minty. I could definitely eat tubes of the stuff. The cake on the other hand was a let-down; it was too dry for me even with the cream inside. The buttercream was also not as delicious as possible; a little too greasy and the chocolate flavor was a little too subtle.
I should have gotten a sticky bun.
