When you just don't know what to do with that stuff

On a walk back through Park Slope after enjoying lunch, felt the need for some dessert, but wasn’t sure where to go. Was pretty sure there was a bakery down one of the streets along the way back, it was just a matter of picking the right one. Crisscrossed a couple blocks and found myself along 8th Avenue, the correct street and found Ladybird Bakery – have visited a few times before, just wasn’t 100% sure of the location.

Step inside and there is a small seating area, next to an expansive display case, that greets you. Cookies, cakes, and cupcakes bombard your vision and it usually takes a couple views before deciding what would suit you for the day – there have been visits where a cake looked like a viable option. After a few walks back-and-forth before the glass display, saw these large carrot cake bars – thick-cut slabs of carrot cake, with a healthy layer of icing topping it off.

Brought it home and took a bite, the cake is moist with nuts that add a much-needed crunchy texture, then that icing – the icing melds everything together – one of those icings you could eat with a spoon.

A picture of the Carrot Cake Bar was added to Instagram (@pau_loreto) and, yes, it earned a “Like” from Zagat.
