Ten of the Chicest Cakes in New York

That’s why I had to go to school for three years!

Katharine Hepburn reportedly once said, “What you see before you, my friend, is the result of a lifetime of chocolate.” And if chocolate worked for Katharine Hepburn, it could also work for you. In honor of National Chocolate Cake Day, found the most sublime chocolate cakes in New York City. From a flourless cake from confectioner François Payard (he swears it just worked out that way) to the charred marshmallows and malted milk crumbs on Momofuku’s signature sweet, chocolate cake comes in many iterations, each as delicious as the last. Of course, we had to ask, what’s the secret to a good chocolate cake? According to Balthazar pastry chef Mark Tasker, “A good chocolate cake requires great chocolate, great complementary ingredients, and a knowledge of how to put them all together. That’s why I had to go to school for three years!” So whether you’re celebrating this momentous holiday, doing some preemptive planning for Valentine’s Day, or following Ms. Hepburn’s lifestyle choice, these ten cakes are sure to ignite the senses.
