If you read yesterday’s post, you might’ve thought it was the end of cupcake entries for a bit. Well, my friend Dan e-mailed me to let me know that I had accidentally put up the wrong data; I posted the most flavorful cupcakes in NYC, not the best cupcakes! Oopsie doopsie! I must be going crazy:


Here are the best bakeries:


1. Buttercup – you read about it yesterday; flavorful, cutely decorated, the frosting is awesome.

2. Baked – everyone loves their cupcakes (their brownies are awesome, too). My friends bought me their cookbook for my birthday and all of their recipes are pretty much the best things on earth.

3. Sweet Revenge – I adore their cupcakes; they’re sweet but not too sweet, the frosting is amazingly rich and decadent, and the flavor combinations are creative!

4. Billy’s – my friend Tim Lee introduced me to this bakery a couple of years ago and I’ve preferred it to Magnolia’s ever since I first stepped into the Chelsea location. I haven’t visited the Tribeca store yet, but I’ve heard it’s just as cute and friendly.

5. Flour and Sun – our entry from Pleasantville! Sumon and his wife liked the bakery and the flavors were cute and creative. I haven’t visited myself, but once I make it up to Westchester to visit Sumon and Koyel, I’ll definitely stop by this bakery.

Every bakery was so delicious in their own way and I really can’t wait to do another cupcake cagematch – maybe it’ll be a semi-annual event! Thanks for reading – I’ll be posting my Aerogarden update soon!

Loved reading about your Cupcake Cagematch – if you need another judge next time, my stomach and I would be honored to participate. I’m glad to see that Baked scored well in all categories as my fiancee and I are getting cupcakes and brownies from them for our November wedding.

We visit NYC at least once a year (more often if withdrawl symptons take over). Every trip, we must stop at Magnolia Bakery and purchase no less than 2 dozen each time. Who cares the length of the line, it is worth the wait!
