Lady M Confections is a popular cake boutique that is known to attract very long queue in the upper east side of New York City, mainly for their famous Mille Crepe Cake. This boutique prides itself on creating the freshest finest cakes and desserts accompanied with aromatic tea and coffee. I have queued for 10 minutes on a Saturday night at 8pm to enjoy a heavenly experience.
Let's start from the best! Their signature Lady M Mille Crepe ($7.50)
was surprising affordable considering the brand and the complexity of perfecting this cake. It may seem very plain and simple but don't judge! Never judge. We were told by the waitress at 8.10pm that they only left 2 slices of this and asked whether we wanted it before it's gone. Regrettably, we only ordered 1 slice, the most regretful decision I've made that day! This slice basically brought us up to heaven, the perfectly caramelized golden top with exactly 20 thin meticulously handmade crepes covered with layers of sweet pastry cream was more than amazing, the best cake I've ever had this entire year of 2013!

We then got ourselves the Strawberry Shortcake ($7.50), which was great too. Light and pure in nature with sweet cream and delicious fresh strawberries, the vanilla spongecake was something I miss having for a long time.

We also got their Tarte aux Fruits ($10), which may seem the prettiest among all 3 cakes we had that night but not the best I've tried. It's not that bad with all the fresh fruits, but nowhere near the taste I get from the mille crepe in comparison. A good try nevertheless!

Overall, I wasn't expecting to experience a heavenly moment here. Everything served here was great! Appearance wise, the mille crepe may not be the best. But in terms of taste and quality, I say I wouldn't mind coming back just to take away up to 10 slices of their signature for my family.
