Cupcakes in NYC

My personal blog makes constant mention of my love for all things cupcake.  So when I was in New York City last week, I had to purchase a few tasty treats.

Magnolia Bakery always has and always will be my favorite place to buy cupcakes.  Made famous by the TV show Sex and the City, I often have to ignore the crowds of tourists to venture inside for a cupcake any time I’m in town.  I love their simple vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting.  With each bite, I can taste the REAL ingredients that were part of the baking process.  Plus Magnolia’s cupcakes don’t seem to be too sugary sweet compared to others.

During last week’s trip, I also made my first visit to Crumbs Bake Shop.  I was amazed at the vast selection of cupcake flavors.  I tried the Cookie Dough and wasn’t overly impressed.  It was much too sweet for me!  But I want to go back again because there are several dozen more options in the case and I definitely want taste them.

Both Magnolia Bakery and Crumbs Bake Shop have several locations around NYC.  If you have a different favorite NYC cupcake spot, please leave a comment on this post.  I’d love to have somewhere new to try!
