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!
