Opera cake at Alon's BakeryAlon's Bakery & Market - Morningside !
Chef Alon Balshan created a drama in three acts with one dainty but glamorous layered sliver of cake. It glimmers in the glass case where it’s housed next to colorful macarons and fruit tarts. Layers of almond sponge cake soaked in coffee syrup, decadent bittersweet ganache, and luscious espresso buttercream mingle beneath a sheet of glossy chocolate glaze. It’s sleek and smooth, light but rich, and as dazzling as it is delectable. $4.99.
