The Cupcake is a classic dessert as well as a well-loved snack. You can find cupcakes everywhere, including prestigious high teas and tiny bakeries.
The cronut and the macaroon must have come into the dessert market trying to replace this delicious dessert but the cupcake still remains one of the best things that happened to dessert.
It’s literally cake, that you don’t need any effort to eat! It comes with its own paper (thin) plate and is the perfect sweet craving subduer.
New York, like its other foods, sells some of the best cupcakes in the world. If you’re looking for a sweet treat, we’ve got you covered, in frosting!
Here’s a list of some of the best cupcakes New York City has to offer:
1. Two Little Red Hens
Two Little Red Hens serves you food that feels like its straight out of a farm in the country but holds up to the New York City quality standards.
What to Try: The Brooklyn Blackout. This decadent chocolate on chocolate cupcake will have you licking your fingers as well as going, one more please!
Baked is your classic American bakery offering posh and upscale desserts and wonderful coffee.Yes
What to Try: The Sweet N’ Salty. This little beauty is also in the run for New York’s best! The cake is fluffy yet moist, and the chocolate frosting is airy with a generous sprinkle of sea salt!
3. Butter Lane
Butter Lane argues to be the best gourmet cupcake shop in the city. Focusing on only cupcakes, they make their buttercream frosting in two ways; The French (with egg whites) and American.
What to Try. The Elvis. A banana flavoured cupcake topped with a caramel frosting and kernels of caramel popcorn! Yes, and it’s delicious!
I like a dozen pack for my NYC to Washington DC bus. Makes the journey so darn sweet!
