Is there ice in this pie? No. Is there a delicious and unbelievably smooth espresso & cream custard, milky dulce de leche, a spiced cookie crust, and a crackly caramelized brûlée’d top to boot? Yes, absolutely it has all of those things. The flavor of this pie recalls the best iced latte you’ve ever had and tastes way more sophisticated than the ingredient list would suggest.


Tiramisu is so luxurious and fancy, even saying the word makes you want to put your pinky out. This Tiramisu Layer Cake is certainly lush, but it’s got a lot of heart too.


Sure, you’ve had a pound cake. But what about a pound cake with all your sweet and salty cravings? This Ultimate Pound Cake mixes chocolate, butterscotch, oats, ground coffee, graham cracker crumbs and is topped with pretzels and potato chips—all the goodness that goes into our iconic Compost Cookies.


This is not your grandma’s pineapple upside-down cake. Our PUD is a tropical-inspired dream with layers of fluffy coconut cake, tart poached pineapple, maraschino cherry soak, box cake mix inspired PUD frosting, and a yellow cake crumb topping.


Carnival rides, ticket booths, that ring game that you just need to try one more time—state fairs are awesome. But the thing we love about them most? Fried circles of dough on a paper plate covered in a mountain of powdered sugar. Oh yeah, funnel cakes.


Fancy cakes are cool and all, but nothing beats a hot cake with a handle. Like our iconic Compost Cookie, this mug cake breaks all the rules with mix-it-if-you-got-it ingredients: potato chips, oats, ground coffee, chocolate chips, butterscotch, marshmallows, ritz crackers, pretzels, or any of your favorite snacks hanging out in the pantry.

Milk Bar Strawberry Shortcake Truffles

From Tosi: Compost Cookies® always turn out great in my mother’s kitchen because she infamously has a hodgepodge of mix-ins, none in great enough quantity to make an actual single-flavored cookie on its own. My brother-in-law calls them “garbage cookies”; others call them “kitchen sink cookies.” Call them what you want, and make them as we make them at Milk Bar, or add your own favorite snacks to the cookie base in place of ours.

Birthday Cake

We took the best parts of childhood, removed all of the awkwardness and added heaps of made-from-scratch birthday cake and frosting (inspired by the boxed supermarket stuff we grew up with). Meet Milk Bar’s B’day Cake, packed with b’day crumbs in the middle, even more on top and dreamy vanilla vibes throughout.

B'Day Truffles

From Tosi: My favorite offering at Milk Bar is our cake truffles, spawned entirely from leftover bits and pieces of cake! You can choose to follow the recipe, or get crazy, without our guidance, using leftovers to concoct your own. Don’t limit yourself to birthday cake; you can use any cake scrap and any leftover fillings, crumbs, or crunches from your kitchen!

Chocolate Malt Cake

Milk Bar's Chocolate Malt Cake is chocolate cake layered with malted fudge, malted milk crumbs and charred marshmallows all topped with malted chocolate frosting!

Cereal Milk

It took trial, error and more than a few taste tests to land on that hard to describe, but instantly familiar sorta sweet, sorta corny milk flavor at the bottom of your cereal bowl. Now you can recreate your own steeped milk sensation with our recipe as a guide.


Valentines Day, date night, just because - whatever the reason, our red velvet take on this luxurious - and cheesy in the best way - treat always brings the heat.


Introducing: Hilly's Strawberry Shortcake Icebox Cake. This season's spinoff on Strawberry Shortcake Cake takes inspiration from the classic Good Humor strawberry ice cream pop. It's giving us all the ice cream truck vibes and we're here for it.


Our limited-time-only Strawberry Shortcake Cake is all about the flavors of springtime — buttery vanilla cake and whipped cream frosting with a brilliant punch of strawberry jam (not to mention a throwback to one of Tosi's earliest claims to dessert fame). Try your hand at the recipe!


The beauty of this recipe: freestyle however you'd like! Use your fave cereal and mix-ins, or whatever you have in the pantry. This simple yet satisfying recipe requires no baking, and is the perfect (kid friendly!) activity if you want a dessert fix, without the fuss.
