DESSERT: Oreo Goodness at Martha's Country Bakery in Astoria

Was finally able to swing by Martha's Country Bakery at 37th and Ditmars Boulevard yesterday for dessert. Mr. Fox and I decided to go down the Oreo route out of everything in the menu. Here's what we ended up ordering:

Mr. Fox's Oreo Crunch Cupcake. The frosting was amazing and comparable to his favorite cupcake, Cookies And Cream from Crumbs Bakeshop. His only complaint is that the cake is airy and not as fluffy and moist as it should be according to his standards. Overall, the cupcake was delicious for its size and $2.25 price.

For my dessert, I ordered the Oreo Mousse Layer Cake- chocolate cake bottom layer, a generous layer of vanilla mousse with Oreo bits, another layer of chocolate cake then topped with fresh whipped cream. It was really creamy and rich. The mousse made the cake delicious but was a little overwhelming for me after eating it for awhile. If the cake was smaller in size then I would've been able to finish it, or perhaps if they made the cake and mousse in equal proportion it would have been much more enjoyable. But over all not bad for $4.50. This dessert would be perfect for mousse lovers.

Overall, Martha's Country Bakery is a great place for all kinds of sweets. They have a wide variety to choose from like cupcakes, specialty cakes, pies, cookies, puddings, sorbet and gelato, hot pies, pastries and any hot or cold beverage you can imagine. There's indoor and outdoor (seasonal) seating with a 30 minute table limit. The prices are also really affordable. It has a quaint ambience and friendly staff that will keep you coming back for their amazing sweet treats!
