In honor of spring, we decided to make some fun out of the blog this week by putting our sweet tooth to the test. Like everyone in New York City, we can’t deny ourselves a yummy cupcake every once in a while, so we decided to share our top three favorite cupcake spots and just what it is that keeps us coming back for more.
Baked By Melissa
The bite-sized cupcakes at Baked by Melissa are so delicious and perfectly sized to satisfy that small sweet craving most of us have. We love all the fun flavors to choose from and how moist each little cupcake bite is. These minis are also well proportioned for those of you who can never seem to find the perfect cake to icing ratio (believe us, this can be a real problem). And at $5.50 for a box of six mini cupcakes, you can’t help but buy one for yourself or to share!
Our favorite flavors: Tie-Dye, Cookie Dough, Red Velvet
Billy’s Bakery was a recent discovery after we were surprised with some cupcakes from a friend of the company, and it was safe to say that we were nothing less than impressed. Not only is the cake delicious, the icing on these cupcakes is also beyond heavenly. Billy’s cupcakes are moist, perfectly sweet, and tasted fresh out of the oven. And for our health nuts, they also offer tasty gluten-free options as well. We really love that Billy’s does a buy one, get one free happy hour from 4-5 pm, which for us, is a perfect excuse to grab something sweet after a long day of work.
Our favorite flavors: Red Velvet (the best of the three!), Classic Vanilla, Gluten-free Chocolate Chip
Everyone loves Magnolia, so there was no way we couldn’t add it to our list of favorites. You can’t go wrong with a cupcake from here. Made fresh all day long, the cupcakes are always moist and never too sweet. Their homemade icing is our favorite part and they always have really adorable designs. Beware of the long lines to get yourself a cupcake here, but we promise it is absolutely worth it!
Our favorite flavors: Chocolate Chocolate, Caramel, and of course Red Velvet
We hope you try some of our favorite cupcakes in New York City either to get your sweet tooth fix or reward yourself at the end of a long day at the office!
Yours in Style,
