Momofuku Milk Bar is the bakery-inspired dessert branch of David Chang’s Momofuku Restaurant Group.

Since its opening in November of 2008, Milk Bar has focused on putting a playful and approachable spin on familiar home-style desserts and savory snacks using quality ingredients and locally-sourced dairy.

The staff was very nice and the environment is clean and chic. We each got a cute headband to wear but the class itself was more like an elementary school cake assembly class rather than adult cake making class. No real decoration, no real skill. Was expecting Momofuku to deliver better/meaningful courses--a bit disappointed to be honest.
The people were awesome but the class is a cake assembly class not a cake making class.
It was fun!
The class was o.k. I prefer classes with more of the actual baking rather than just cake assembly.
A fab mix of food, fun & learning. Very well organized and would recommend as something to do with a friend, as a group or on your own.
I want to book a class with my girlfriends! We would have so much fun.
Very fun class in a beautiful clean facility. A bit expensive and the recipe is quite complicated for me to try to recreate but I had a great time regardless!
Most delicious course!
So much fun! Sarah and Ashley were great and I would definitely book another class.
The way the instructor spoke was really annoying! The class also moved pretty slowly and the quality of the ingredients used was sub-par.
