Baked in Red Hook
We checked out Baked on Saturday after visiting the soccer fields. I didn't really have any expectations and was very pleasantly surprised. Loved the decor, the modern cabin feel and that crazy mirror behind the counter. Very similar to Chocolate Bar for obvious reasons.
I noticed right away that they were carrying one of my favorite Tisanes in a flavor I can never find so I quickly grabbed a box.
We weren't even hungry but everything looked so good. We tried a PB Crispy Bar (a homemade rice crispy treat with a thick layer of peanut butter and a very thin layer of chocolate) and a chocolate sandwich cookie (similar to the Bouchon TKO only bigger and fatter. Like a giant homemade Double Stuff Oreo). Bother were fantastic. We could really taste the quality of the ingredients. Loved the cream filling in the cookie. It reminded me of the silky smooth buttercream you find at Two Little Red Hens or Cupcake Cafe.
At the last second my BF also grabbed one of their chocolate marshmallows. It reminded me of Count Chocula. Not a bad thing in my book.
I'm already looking forward to my next visit. I'd love to try their Red Velvet. They also had an interesting looking Green Tea cake. Plus numerous cookies, bars, etc. I have a feeling we'll be back again and again.
I've passed by Baked on several ocassion while on my way to Fairway. How's the pricing on the cakes, etc.? Is it expensive?
The cake is $4 a slice but I must say that it's a big enough slice for two people to eat and be sickly-full. It is the biggest slice of cake I have ever attempted to eat.
Glad to hear it. I went there when it first opened and my friend spoke to the guy that owns the place and he seemed like a really nice guy...that was a while ago, and all I had was a small raspberry bread pudding, but I thought it was really good. I have wanted this place to do well.
