We both thought Momofuku's naked cakes were gorgeous, so we went with a four tier cake w/ alternating layers of salted pretzel and apple pie cake. To be honest I thought the apple pie was a bit too sweet, but the salted pretzel was delicious. I know there is a concern that naked cakes will dry out, but both flavors were incredibly moist.
Takeaway: the cake looked beautiful, tasted great, arrived on time, and they were incredibly easy to work with (e.g., responded to our email questions within minutes). Very happy we went with Momofuku.
I saw the naked cakes made by momofuku milk bar and knew we had to have one for our wedding. Being that these are the only type of cakes they make they really know what they're doing. The flavor combinations are so unique and you just can't beat how dramatic they look. For a tasting, they prepare all the flavors they make into 2 bite tastings for you and your fiancé. There is a charge for the tasting and you have the option of going to their bakery in Williamsburg or having the cake tasting sent to your home if you're not close by. For the tiers, you can select any combination of flavors. We opted for a 4 tier salted pretzel wedding cake + extra round cake for a planned 150 guest wedding. Because the cakes are minimally decorated they are surprisingly affordable, however the delivery charge can really eat into your wedding budget. Almost 50% of the total cake budget went to pay for delivery of the cake to New Jersey. However, I think it was worth every penny since everyone raved about how delicious and incredible looking our cake was. The cake comes fully constructed already so no need to worry about the cake being put together at the venue. However, this does mean that any venue you select should have a fridge big enough to fit the cake or you'll have to pay for an insulated box to keep the cake cool before the reception. Also, if you'd like to add decorations to the cake, like flowers, you have to do that yourself after the cake gets delivered to the venue.
One critique I have is that we were initially told that because we were having the cake delivered to New Jersey they would only be able to deliver it in the morning despite the fact we were having an evening reception. This was wrong. It wasn't until a week prior to confirming the delivery date and time we found out that there are actually THREE available time slots for delivery - morning, noon, and late afternoon. This should be something front of the house people should be aware of.
We have been huge fans of Momofuku milk bar and their cakes for a long time so it was a no brainer to go to them for our wedding cakes. We wanted it to be fun but still simple so instead of doing tiered cakes we decided to get a few cakes. We orded 3 14" cakes in different flavors and then a small 6" cake as our personal cake and for the cake cutting. Everyone loved the different options- we went for strawberry, dulce de leche and chocolate. It was going to be a long drive so we ordered the insulated boxes which was perfect for transporting. Everyone could not stop raving about the cakes.
I can't even begin to tell you how delicious and beautiful our cake was! We wanted something unique and different and when i saw their cakes in a bridal magazine, i knew we had to order thru them.
We ordered a 4 tier cake each layer with a different flavor. Ours was Chocolate malt for the 14" cake, then dulce de Leche for the 10", Vanilla Birthday confetti for the 6" and Apple Mode cake for the 4". It was delicious and all gone!!
We did end up picking up our cake to save the shipping or delivery fee (it was almost more than half of what our cake cost). The pick up was one of the easiest things i did through out my wedding! They packed in insulated box (the inside had ice packs..it looked like a little fridge on the inside) and we put it in the back of our car. Easy Breezy! The cake did not move nor did it touch anything. It was perfect! You will not regret this cake!
I order my naked wedding cake from them, they have been very helpful and very prompt to responding to emails !
Milk Momofuku Cakes are DELICIOUS! Everyone LOVED our wedding cake. It's a beautiful wedding cake that is so unique. The "naked wedding cake" idea was something we were really excited about and they made an awesome cake for us. Their flavors are so yummy and so fresh. We only had a three tier cake. We did the Dulce de Leche, German Chocolate, and Chocolate Chip with passionfruit curd (AMAZING!).
Delicious naked cake at an affordable price when it comes to wedding cakes.
Milk Bar is surprisingly affordable given the name and the quality they provide for favors. What I was shocked about how professional they were. Everything was done through email which made life so much easier and they even handled our monogram stickers for us at a very affordable price! Everything went smoothly and everyone loved our cookie favors. Definitely recommend for a different spin on wedding favors!
I'm a huge Milk Bar fan and knew I had to have a Milk Bar wedding cake. I loved the unique, raw, unfrosted presentation but unfortunately it just didn't taste as good as it looked. It tasted like something that had been frozen rock solid, then left out to defrost. Too dense and overly sweet. Disappointing.
I opted for a delicious 3-tier wedding cake without fancy frosting, which I knew all our guests would enjoy, over a typical wedding cake that may look nice but not nearly as yummy, and I would do it all over again.
My husband and I are huge fans of their entire menu of desserts, and it was pretty much a no-brainer when it came to where we would get our cake from. The only question was deciding what flavors to get (and they sure have many!). We got a cake sample pack for $25, and decided on two of their best: strawberry lemon for the top and bottom tiers, and german chocolate for the middle tier.
If you have not tried their cakes or other desserts, you're surely missing out. Our guests loved the cake and their cookies were a big hit at the end of the evening! The ordering process was quick and simple, and they of course had very friendly customer service.
The only glitch that I would note is the delivery, which was not very timely. I specifically requested a 1PM sharp delivery time when I placed the order and although this was confirmed by the sales rep, the delivery did not arrive until around 3PM on the day of. We had a 3:30pm ceremomy start time, and I wanted the cake to be set up and displayed during our ceremony. Luckily it arrived before the ceremony started, but it was a bit hectic at the last minute as guests were arriving while the cake had to be set up as they were being seated. It would had been a huge disappointment if it had arrived any later, but our catering staff took care of everything in a timely manner and it was smooth sailing from there.
Why anyone would get some fondant covered thing is beyond me. Momofuku cakes are the bomb. We got 3 tiers- pistachio, apple pie and chocolate malt. It was delicious and beautiful. Ordering was super easy too. The hardest part was picking the flavors!
What can I say - momofuku milk bar makes delicious, delicious desserts. We ordered three cakes for our wedding and over 1000 cookies (five varieties) as favors, and everybody who tasted them, raved about them. Truly a New York gem.
We ordered our wedding cake from milk bar and it was delicious!!!! The ordering process was fun and easy and the staff was super helpful with any questions. I was a little nervous with shipping and storing the cake until the reception, but they packaged and shipped it perfectly and it was in perfect shape. Thanks for helping make our wedding delicious!!!!
We chose to have our wedding cake baked by Momofuku after falling completely in love with their birthday cake truffle balls. My husband and I went for a tasting and fell in love with all the flavors and we knew it would be a hit at our wedding reception. The team at Momofuku was very professional and responsive and had answers to all our questions. The payment process was pretty flawless and left us resting assured that our cake was going to turn out great. After the event, our friends and family could not stop talking about the amazing cake we had and how unique it was. We were eating leftovers days after the event and it was still delicious! From a pricing standpoint, the price of the cake was on the higher side of cakes but it was well worth every penny.
Loved my cake! Very creative and absolutely delicious. We had 4 tiers and chose chocolate malt, pistachio, carrot, and birthday cake. Highly recommended if you want to do something other than a boring buttercream.
Our wedding cake was delicious and all of our guest raved about the Cookie favors!!!
