Boardwalk Bakery

 

The sign says, “Come on in!” Well, who am I to disobey??” ;)

The Boardwalk Bakery is a great place to find a delicious cupcake. Today they had Strawberry, Lemon Blueberry, and Oreo.

 

 

 

Not feeling like a cupcake, my search continued. These salads looked really good…

 

Especially this one that was covered with what looked like goat cheese…

 

However, my sweet tooth was not impressed and told me to keep moving on… :rolleyes:

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, look at the not-so-hidden Mickey in the fruit tart…

 

But it was the item next to the fruit tart that really caught my eye…

 

Ding, ding, ding…we have a winner!!!  The Napoleon! :thumbsup2

 

And closer…

 

Earlier in my trip I had taste tested the Napoleon from Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie…

 

Even though they had claimed to have improved this recently, making it more like their Napoleon from the old Boulangerie Patisserie…


The old Boulangerie Patisserie Napoleon
…to me this was a fail. :sad2: The filling tasted like a very “eggy” custard and the icing on top was sickly sweet. Blech! Most of this went into the garbage.

But during my last trip I was thrilled to find that a Napoleon that is very similar to the old Boulangerie Patisserie one can be found at the Boardwalk Bakery.

And here it is in all its glory…

 

The filling of this one is light and creamy and the powdered sugar on top adds just the right amount of sweetness. Oh, and the chocolate dipped strawberry half is a nice bonus! :thumbsup2

So IMO the Boardwalk’s Napoleon kicks the French Napoleon’s butt and is the clear winner of my Napoleon challenge. Has anyone else tasted both? I’d love to hear your opinion, even if it is different than my own. ;)
