the bonbonerie

I’m checking things off of my Cincinnati bucket list. Today I had The BonBonerie Opera Cream Cake. I’ve listened to so many native Cincinnatians rave about the cake and how it’s the only one they request for birthdays and special occasions. And let me tell you people, it was chocolate heaven.

The cake is chocolate chip that is then soaked in brandy, crème de café and a vanilla syrup. Then, layers of creamy white icing are added. Next is a chocolate icing, and last chocolate curls are packed onto the sides.

  1. My favourite pastry in Cincinnati:) I’ve ordered a slice for breakfast at the cafe before! The manager made a snide comment that i was eating cake in the morning. It was rude, but whatever, I can’t help it that it is just that good!
