Hosting several pop-ups in the Houston area that teased Texans with a taste of its handmade mille crepe cakes, New York-based boutique cake company Lady M has worked to create a presence in the Houston area over the years. And just this week, the cake shop is making a permanent commitment to the Lone Star state.

Lady M opened its first Texas boutique inside the Houston Galleria on Thursday, May 25, inviting dessert lovers and longtime fans to take whole cakes or slices to-go, while also giving them the option to devour them at the shop’s limited counter seating.

The mille crepe cakes have built a cult-like reputation for their pristine appearance and composition. Made of 20 delicate or “paper-thin” layers of pastry, which helped give the cakes their name (Crepes referring to its thin layers, and “mille,” meaning “thousand” in French, being a hyperbole), the cakes come in more than 10 flavors, including green tea, the new guava, Berry Mont Blanc, tiramisu, and Lady M’s signature original flavor. The intricacy comes at a cost — running diners more than $60 for a 6-inch cake and over $100 for a 9-inch.
