who was was started by my mother we came from Cuba's immigrants started making cakes at home and selling them to their neighbors for whatever they could give her people to bring other people feeling each other's a lady and server like and sons that makes incredible cakes and the rest is just hard work and how many cakes are you doing these days oh my god we go 200 skin we have maybe 15 or 16 case that we make on a regular basis every day Hines up kids yes and the ones that we're gonna be showcasing uses their milk Ameri so yeah tell us about the recipe it's a tres leches so we take the turf like a sponge which is a sponge that's soaked in milk syrup and then we filled it with whipped cream and fresh berries we tried all kinds of different fillings and this was the one that everybody likes the most and ever since we put it out it's only been growing and growing it's our number one best song I think because they has the sweetness of the is ledger which is the conveys no but then the torque berries are we ended up using kind of cut it down so there's a balance when I first heard about Porto's I ask somebody where should I go to eat they told me about the potato balls cheese roll yes I know we're not eating though today we why not we gave you all the way low we're gonna get that's a guy okay we have now been presented with the famous token various take it is a tres Lake a cake stuffed with berries it's a beautiful thing I think first we take a sip of the Ordos quarter dates are two shots of espresso with condensed milk and milk in it and in this heart represents the love that I have for at all Cheers oh I love the condensed milk in there if you don't like the bitter taste of coffee this is perfect for you it still has a nice balance of bitterness it's there this will teach you how to like talk that this cake I can only tell them to like this cake off the bat I mean it's very pretty it's pretty but it's like still very natural you know my big complaint is when cakes are like a neon yellow oh this looks like I want to be my mouth right now so the underside that was on the plate is just so moist moist is a word we're going to be saying a lot in this episode it's the best use of a not great word this game is very good look how it stays here for tres leches cake it's all about being saturated with that syrup dense with moisture the creaminess that the sponge becomes is different than the creaminess of the whipped cream and then you bite into a berry and that's actually the hardest texture but then it explodes with more moisture in your mouth they should rename it three moistures my favorite part of this cake how it feels like I'm drinking the most satisfying glass of milk you would think that a cake milk doesn't taste good you'd be wrong I mean the bar has been set very I let's get out of here pretty good cake right guys they gave us sandwiches mmm tres leches milk and berries cake $27 it's a cake you can take home to your mother my mother works have any cake she loves my back field he also got some potato balls cake that I love okay we did it one quick video quick hit me with a moist cake sir did you know that German chocolate

tomorrow yes please just pop it in shove it in there where we go tomorrow my name is Darby Jocko I'm the pastry chef here at proof bakery and today we're going to serve you an espresso chocolate cake so walk us through that process boarding that cake first off we make the devil's food cake sort rim of broken down into three layers first layer so it's basically a little espresso sugar water commit which is a creamy pudding we cook ours a little bit further than normal we take it almost to the breaking point so it's really thick because we actually use it as a nice thing as well that's kind of really thick this is the espresso buttercream and then just build again repeat the whole process and then we crumb coat it which basically protects the whole cake so when you iced it none of the crumbs fall out and then glaze them right before they go out to the store save all the scraps that we cut off the cakes actually just get baked dried out and then we grind those or the crumbs that go on the side of the cake pretty much our biggest seller here besides our croissants it's not overly sweet it's not overly powerful with the espresso just balanced and we serve it at room temp otherwise the flavors get muddled in the cold I think he needs to have all the flavors kind of brighten up when they're room temperature do you have a favorite cake I mean this is press okay kai eat my birthday yeah that's a good measure yeah never Casey we through have a cake that I meet a girl yeah can't go wrong let's start with our cappuccinos cappuccino cappuccino cappuccino ah delightful powerful you would become very easily addicted to dress yes this whole thing is so satisfying to look at I also really like when she used the blowtorch tonight it elects this little Ridge of melted at the seam of every slice I find that very satisfying oh yeah you left-handed yes that's why setting the left side the cake improve here we go oh no you just try that with me outstanding incredible what word am I looking for right now let me the best cake I've ever had in my life it's room-temperature cake that's the difference I think it's room temperature it's alive in my mouth it's not too sweet but it's perfectly sweet it doesn't fall apart it's not too crummy everything is like in perfect order a structural integrity level that means the textures are balanced I can do this I can make my points with the cake okay that's a tight two you know that's what I like not too much going on but everything that is going on going on good I'm gonna say it this cake wins you haven't even seen a lot of cake yet I'm just gonna have truffles on it Adam okay leave those quest oh I'm driving respect the quest own ah look at those flaky layers doh look at that yeah so what do you think about proof I mean the proof is in the front room you know did the promoter neutral curmudgeon or pretty girl babycakes should be same I want to be like that can I go take back three kick back kick back did you know that FDR's favorite cake was fruitcake also my favorite my favorite cake is carrot cake did you know Bill Clinton's favorite cake is carrot cake cake is delightful I thought he's not proof yeah I was having a good time three cakes three days to the last pot Bottega Louie who cakes down one to go I had cake for breakfast I'm not doing too hot James Rozelle I'm the cake designer here at will take a Louie and we produce custom cakes anything you want we can certainly create anything tell us a little more about Bottega Louie what kind of place is bad so we'll take a looook was founded in 2007 have a restaurant and marketplace so restaurant specializes in Italian fare type cuisine while the marketplace is where you can come in get some pastries whether it's macaroons beignets chocolates we produce over 14,000 macaroons a day a day yes macaroons are probably our most popular sweet item here we're getting those and so we're going to be eating the cake tell us a bit about your process so if you want a cake from Bottega Louie and you'll sit down eat cake discuss details have some coffee maybe some champagne and during the consultation you get to taste 10 varieties of fillings along with our chocolate and vanilla cakes so Stephens already done all this yes it's already happy yeah you guys are already best friends yes we are I'm the one out of the boots and then we'll go into baking the cake once that sketch has been approved by the client so we bake cakes while them to cool during that process we'll be making all the before whether it's sugar flowers ribbons bows lace everything is done out of an edible media once all of the decorative aspects are completed the cake is filled and iced and staffed then at that point we just put it all together your cake I firmly believe has to taste as good as it looked so our cakes start at 9 dollars per person and they can go up depending on how intricate and detailed the design so the final price type for your cake turns out to be 1,001 that is the most expensive food we've eaten on this show to date and what does cake symbolize for you cake just symbolizes life celebration for me when I think about cake puts a smile on my face and I think that's how it should be for everyone else this is a I've never seen a cake like this it is very satisfying to look at it in case you were wondering where the cake is a box okay the box is the cake yeah I guess that see what's inside what mysteries it holds Wow art right here I love how perfectly square it everything is – worth it so what kind of cake did you select for us this is partially your yes your ideas what I told him was make it fun exciting I told him that you are very hard to please which is relative to you you're very easy to please I'm a happy person is that okay it's fine let's go to the cake the gift box cake the funfetti strawberry buttercream and white chocolate buttercream with a flavor explosion the end I can't wait to eat everything on his box

strawberry shortcake with sprinkles take me back to my childhood ten-year-old Stephen would have went ham on this cake the imagine ten year old Stephen though I'm just imagining a smaller version of you hmm I'm getting that sugar rush right now yeah I'm getting that sugar rush right now to the strawberry is a very fresh strawberry place it's like I'm sucking them right out of the peel the seeds on the cake the candy churn oh hi Karen let me like a little chocolate whopper I want you to break it off like a wishbone oh cool give it wish sure all right what was your wish didn't come true it's like decoration it's fun to eat something that's shaped like this it's like a dried pasta noodle that's sweet whoa I'm eating it tastes like paper I call the party hat do you want to wear it Party Time this is the most fun just eating whatever I want to eat and having no consequences except for the massive sugar rush from having disclaimer there are not no consequences to eating a lot of cake this cake is delicious but it is very clearly a cake inspired by your coming more two kinds of green eight layers sprinkles in there as well other kind of sugar bobbles everywhere it's like the lucid dream Stephen gates like that it's good KK with my Canadian the final question does it taste as good as it look I would say better I would say I think I'm incapable of eating any more all right let's get out of here oh my heart is ready Cheers which one was the most worthy at its price let me break it down we're take a Louie amazing I've never seen a cake like that in my life overall though proof was the most worth it was a perfect cake in the way that you actually had cake when you're a little kid we spent over a thousand dollars on a cake at Bodega I truly love what they got the experience
