Stepping into Billy’s Bakery is like going back in time. With their 1940′s decor, it feels and smells like you are stepping into the kitchen of your fabulous grandma who has been baking all day. As soon as you walk through the doors of Billy’s Bakery in TriBeCa, the hustle and bustle of the outside world stops. It’s homey, comfortable filled with sweet concoctions- what more could a girl ask for?
Billy’s Bakery is brought to us by two friends who met over ten years ago in business school. The goal was to provide the best classic American baked goods and since opening in 2003, they have been doing just that. Everything in the shops are baked from scratch everyday and if you can’t tell already, I am a huge fan! The cases at Billy’s Bakery are filled with delectable cupcakes, pies, cookies, bars, cheesecakes, layered cakes and brownies. Check out the full menu here.
The show-stealer at Billy’s Bakery is their Famous Ice Box Cake. This cake is has so many layer that it’s hard for people not to love. The cake is simple but detailed. With only two ingredients, fresh dairy whipped cream and chocolate wafer cookies, and over twenty layers, it’s the perfect cake for every occasion. I had the chance to get my hands on this Famous Ice Box Cake last week when we celebrated our October Birthday’s at my work. My friend Lauren and I picked up three of these cakes and headed back to the office to enjoy with the team.
Famous Ice Box Cake at Billy’s Bakery comes with your choice of vanilla or chocolate fresh dairy whipped cream. These cakes feed at least ten people and cost $35 each. Pick one up today at any of their locations in Chelsea, TriBeCa or The Plaza Food Hall. Not in NYC? Have their cupcakes and cakes shipped to your front door anywhere in the US.
So- there you have it folks, Billy’s Bakery is a great place that everyone should experience. So what are you waiting for? Run, don’t walk to Billy’s Bakery now and tell them Hungry White Girl sent you!
