Did someone say CUPCAKES?!! If I could put in a million little hearts right here, I would put two million beeeeeeeecause I LOVE cupcakes. Love ‘em. Seriously, you guys. When I was preggers, I would eat like 600 a day. Which means you can only imagine the amount of trips poor Lucas had to make to the bakery.
So if you’re wondering where all the cupcakes went? I ate ‘em. I ate ‘em all.
What was I saying?
Right! New York.
New York City has a special place in my heart. For those of you who don’t know, Lucas grew up in NYC and I fell in love with it the first weekend I spent there, but the fact that it is Cupcake Heaven (I swear I’ve seen li’langelic cupcakes floating on fluffy clouds) totally makes it all the more lovable.
The city boasts of some amazingly crafted, sugary, mini-cakes. Little cupcakeriesdot almost every street- from the ultimate chocolate chip cupcakes and my all-time favorite red velvet ones to funky delightsinfused with pumpkin; they have ‘em all!
What are my favorite cupcake shops in the City you ask? Here we go!
From banana nutella cupcakes to boxed mini cupcakes, Billy’s may be one of the reasons why I’m a certified cupcake addict. Okay maybe ’coz I can’t stop gorging on their yummy delights whenever I stop by (sugar rush!).
Tiramisu cupcake anyone? Brooklyn Cupcake’s got it. Having shops in three different locations in the city, the rainbow cookie and the vanilla raspberry cupcakes are also absolutely magical! Not to mention my favorite red velvet cupcakes (can’t stop raving about these).
One of the famous cupcakes in NYC, cupcakes here are a must-have. Don’t mind waiting for hours in the queue just to get my hands on one of the pumpkin pecan cupcakes. Never was a pumpkin fan when I was younger- now it’s a mystery how I go for them every time!
It’s the raspberry swirl all the way (if you haven’t already guessed, I’m pretty crazy about raspberries too). This nationwide brand also offersgluten-free cupcakes.
Tucked away on Court Street in Brooklyn, this bistro-style place is hard to miss if you visit this area. Best known for a variety of desserts, I’d highly recommend their delicious chocolate cupcakes.
If you haven’t been to any these places, you for sure don’t know what a real cupcake tastes like! Pop in and get mesmerized by these melt-in-your-mouth treats. MmmmJ
And now I’m all nostalgic!Gotta plan a trip soon.New York, here I come!
