The Baking Bean in Brooklyn, New York is helping its customers feel nostalgic by recreating a classic cake from their childhoods. The bakery is offering Ring Dings, its own version of Hostess Ding Dong chocolate cakes.
These throwbacks come in two flavors. The classic Chocolate Ring Ding ($6) is chocolate cake and vanilla buttercream, all enrobed in 60 percent chocolate. The Funfetti Ring Ding ($6) is housemade funfetti vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, all enrobed in 60 percent chocolate.
Ring Dings can be found at The Baking Bean’s vendor locations at both the Columbus Circle Holiday Market and Bryant Park Winter Village, as well as on the bakery’s website.
These aren’t the only unique desserts The Baking Bean is currently offering. The winter menu also features an ube (purple yam) pie with a coconut crust, ube cream, and freshly piped toasted marshmallow, as well as peanut butter and jelly s’mores, which are made with peanut butter shortbread cookie, raspberry jam, and marshmallow enrobed in milk chocolate.
