Every day, more than a dozen flavors of Bo Nuage cloud cakes--about the size and density of a hefty snowball--are baked.
The bakery on Melrose Avenue has a black-and-white color scheme that makes a snazzy graphic backdrop for the colorful cloud cakes.
In addition to single-serve cloud cakes, Bo Nuage sells bags of melt-in-your-mouth pastel meringues ($2.50).
Coconut, lemon, passion fruit and raspberry nuage cakes are gluten-free and under 100 calories each.
We?re fixed on losing the five pounds we gained over the holidays. But we?re not about to deny our sweet tooth, reawakened by weeks of baked indulgences.
So we?re borrowing a page from those French ladies who don?t get fat with single-serve cakes from new French bakery Bo Nuage. Run by a Parisian expat husband and wife, Bo Nuage is dedicated to making their homeland?s nuage, or cloud cake, a meringue-and-whipped-cream layer cake topped with chocolate. Yes, it?s très amazing.
Bo Nuage has 15 types of the five-inch mini-cakes ($6 each). There?s the popular red velvet nuage, which is topped with a half inch of its namesake sheet cake, and the peanut butter version, which is rolled in chocolate shavings and topped with a dollop of the creamy spread. But our favorites are the fruity ones--passion fruit, mango, lemon--which are gluten-free and less than 200 calories each.
The Melrose bakery has a supercute black-and-white interior, which sets off the rainbow of mini-cakes (larger sizes are available, too). Stop by for a cup of Stumptown coffee and a treat that will leave you feeling light.
