The dish: Pumpkin Pie
Okay, so this isn’t your traditional pumpkin pie. In fact, Go Cakes refers to it as “Not Your Usual Pumpkin Pie.” It’s an accurate way of describing this ingenious cake/tart/pie hybrid by founder Stephanie Fong, who once trained with Instagram’s most revered pastry chef, Amaury Guichon, and turns out delicate, delicious, Asian-inflected desserts from her San Marino shop. Beautifully decorated, like all of Fong’s creations, this “pie” is a symphony of taste and texture, encapsulating the best flavors of fall in one bite. First, your teeth will sink into carrot ribbons and cream cheese mousse (a wonderfully pleasing texture mashup of crunch and fluff). Then, you’ll reach an incredibly moist and flavorful layer of carrot cake. Finally, you’ll hit spiced pumpkin pastry cream and a crisp, buttery crust.
