Milk Bar Overview
Milk Bar was founded by Christina Tosi, an award-winning pastry chef and a prolific entrepreneur who has changed the baking industry forever.
The company is known for its innovative recipes. They take delicious baked goods that people already know and love, then mix up the recipes to create new, fun ways to treat yourself.
Though Milk Bar started out in New York City, their fanbase grew quickly. The company now also has flagship locations in Los Angeles and Washington D.C., as well as numerous other bakery locations around the country.
The Milk Bar website is also packed with treats that can be ordered online and delivered nationwide. They also have a select offering of items that can be purchased in grocery stores around the country. More on this later in the article…
For now, let’s get on to the main event: the delicious treats offered on the Milk Bar menu!
Milk Bar Menu
Milk Bar is famous for such a variety of treats, most of which have morphed into fantastic reimaginings of their former selves, that it can be overwhelming to pick just one.
Luckily, we’ve got a list of their top items so that you can go into this delicious experience prepared!
1. Milk Bar Cakes
Cakes are perhaps the first item that comes to mind when anyone wants to try out a new bakery. Milk Bar Cakes are exciting because they are one of the primary showcases of what Milk Bar does best: create new takes on beloved classic desserts!
Below, you’ll find a list of their cake offerings or you can see all the cakes on their website here.
Milk Bar Birthday Cake
Talk about a modern twist on a classic treat! This vanilla cake has 3-tiers. Each tier is separated by a layer of thick, creamy Birthday frosting with more frosting, sprinkles and some cake truffle bits on top.
The sides of the cake are unfrosted to reveal the fun confetti-style rainbow of colors speckling the inside.
This cake is also available gluten-free.
Chocolate Birthday Cake
This Birthday Cake is very similar to the vanilla Birthday Cake mentioned above…except its layered with delicious chocolate cake and chocolate chips!
Don’t worry, you’ll still find the fun rainbow sprinkles and crunchy Birthday crumbs topping it all off.
Red Velvet Cheesecake Cake
There’s no dessert that can outshine the red velvet cake when it comes to an extravagant-feeling dessert—except perhaps Milk Bar’s Red Velvet Cheesecake!
It pairs layers of double chocolate red velvet cake and frosting with cheesecake filling and the perfect amount of crunchy red velvet crumbs for added texture.
2. Milk Bar Pie
Currently, there is only one pie offering at Milk Bar…but it’s a good one! The Milk Bar Pie is the company’s claim to fame.
Milk Bar Pie
The signature Milk Bar Pie starts with a delicious oat cookie crust. It’s topped with a sticky, buttery filling that is the perfect blend of salty and sweet.
3. Milk Bar Cake Truffles
Next up are Milk Bar’s Truffles. Milk Bar took their most classic and beloved cake recipes and added another option in the form of cake-made truffles.
The cake truffles are actually made from leftover cake scraps, so they have all the same intensely wonderful flavor as the cakes they were made from!
Created from the classic Birthday Cake, these rainbow-sprinkled truffles are a bite of nostalgia each. Also available gluten-free.
Chocolate B’Day Truffle
Another take on the childhood sweetness of Milk Bar’s Birthday cake, but with more chocolate to add to the fun rainbow sprinkles!
Red Velvet Cheesecake Truffles
Though they aren’t striped in style like their cake parent, the Red Velvet Cheesecake Truffles still pack all the delicious chocolate and cheesecake flavor into bite-sized packages.
4. Milk Bar Cookies
Milk Bar also makes fantastic cookies that have more than earned their spot on the menu. Cookie flavors are available to order individually, but also in tins of assorted flavors.
The Compost cookie is sometimes known as a “kitchen sink cookie”. This treat is packed with chocolate chips, vanilla, graham crackers, pretzels, butterscotch, coffee, oats, and even potato chips to make it the perfect balance between sweet and salty.
This perfectly chewy and fluffy vanilla Confetti cookie is reminiscent of the Birthday Cake with its rich buttery, vanilla flavor and colorful rainbow sprinkles.
Chocolate Confetti Cookie
Similar to the confetti cookie, but the Chocolate Confetti cookie is packed with cocoa flavor and mini chocolate chips (and of course, sprinkles!)
Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookie
What’s better than chocolate chip cookies? Only the Cornflake Marshmallow cookie that Milk Bar has created, with caramelized cereal bits adding crunch and gooey marshmallows adding sweetness to the mix!
The Corn cookie is simple but delicious. It’s made with Milk Bar’s founder’s family farm in mind thanks to the cornbread-like recipe made with salty, buttery goodness.
Fun Fact: The company actually recommends using two Corn cookies as the bread for a grilled cheese sandwich!
5. Milk Bar Gluten-Free Desserts
