oh the cupcakes! {live from NYC}


NYC has been incredible, it's been non-stop family/friends/shopping/shows and we're loving every minute! I don't really have computer access, but I had to share the cupcake trails that I've been blazing through the city. I'm on a mission to try them ALL, and since we walk all day long, I won't feel the guilt. Let's begin with the famous Magnolia bakery~love the small town shop atmosphere and the serve yourself white pastry boxes. The cupcakes themselves are a wee bit heavy on the butter cream for my taste, not that it stopped me. Next up, Billy's Bakery (image above) in Chelsea, a tiny old fashioned style joint filled to the brim with originality, the cupcakes are DIVINE, not too sweet and fab frosting/cake ratio. We'll be hitting up a few more today...and I'll be sure to share. xoxo
**Look for us tonight (Thursday) on the Dave Letterman Show!!**

Billy's are the best! (and once you get home and are hankering for one, you can get the recipe from the Martha Stewart site and make them at home, too ... delicious.)

Billy's are the best! You have to try Sugar Sweet Sunshine. Yumm-O! I do not know the exact address, but it is on the Lower East side. I used to make special trips down there when I was pregnant just for their Red Velvet cupcakes. xoxo

Were you a guest? Orin the audience? Sorry, I don't watch Dave... to busy putting my blog online at that hour.
I have never tried the Magnolia cupcakes... but a friend tried their recipe... their frosting is too sweet for me.
