No frosting. No decorations. Yes, it certainly looks plain but this unassuming slice of Salted Caramel Cheesecake ($50 for a 6-inch cake, $8 a slice) from Bakerzin doesn't need extras to blow you away. It's got a super rich sea salt caramel layer mixed with just the right amount of Valrhona dark chocolate for that slight tinge of bitterness. Buttered on top of a smooth, creamy cheesecake that sits on a crumbly biscuit base, this sits right on that fine line between sweet and tangy — what we imagine the love child of a New York cheesecake and a bottle of salted caramel spread would taste like!
*Whole cakes have to be ordered two days in advance
