I’ve recently become mildly obsessed with cupcakes. Okay, I’ll be honest – I am completely obsessed with them. They’ve taken over my dessert dreams. My boyfriend and I plan days around stopping to get cupcakes at various locales.
I really can’t think of a better dessert. Yes, that’s right. I think cupcakes are the best.
This all started a few months ago when I took a trip to the famed Crumbs Bakery that opened in my town. Well, it was love at first sight. I spent a few hours prior to my trip analyzing the menu (something I do before every food trip I make). As soon as I opened that menu page, I was sucked in.
After visiting a hand full of times, cappuccino is my favorite. It was a decadent cream-cheese filling with a thick chocolate/coffee frosting surrounded by mini chocolate chips. S’mores and Brownie are a close second/third.
Since that fateful day in oh so many ways, I’ve been on a quest to obtain gourmet cupcakes anywhere, and any way I can.
The New York Times recently published an article about the growing cupcake trend, and conveniently listed the top 10 in the city. Well, you can only imagine what I’ve got planned.
My first stop was the newly famed CupcakeStop. This will blow your mind. It’s a cupcake bakery, on wheels!!! They travel throughout the city and post their location and daily flavors via Twitter. It really is ingenious. For a bakery on wheels, their cookie dough cupcake was pretty spot on. They’ve even introduced two sizes and gluten free!
I think my next stop will be the famed Magnolia’s on Bleeker St made famous by my girl SJP in SATC. I’ll have to see where the sweet deliciousness takes me from there.
I have every intention of trying any and every cupcake I can get my hands on. I promise to keep you posted on my journey.
