Here at Papery & Cakery, we consider ourselves confectionary connoisseurs. While brainstorming our final post for this fabulous birthday week (before Cakery Friday), we agreed we should talk about some of the best cupcakes we’ve ever eaten. After all, we love cupcakes both in our logo and in real life!
My favorite cupcakes in NYC are at CC’s Cafe. They are light and airy with just the right thickness and sweetness of the buttercream.
I love the red velvet cheesecake at the infamous Magnolia Bakery. Although it’s not exactly a cupcake it sure looks like one and it tastes incredible.
I also adore all of the cupcakes from Billy’s Bakery.
When Cole and I were in Houston last fall for a Ravens game we visited Crave Cupcakes. Not only was I completely obsessed with their amazing storefront, and the fantastic mixer silhouette in their logo, but the Red Velvet Cupcake really couldn’t be beat.
In NYC last Spring my friends Michelle & Shelley told me I had to make a pit stop at Crumbs Bakery. I tried the peanut butter cup cupcake which was frosted with a cream cheese icing with Reeses cups mixed in. My stomach is growling just thinking about it.
My all time favorite cupcakes are the ones that Ali made for my shower a few years ago. They were vanilla pound cake with a cream cheese frosting (see a pattern here?) and were iced with adorable fondant daisies. If you’re in the NYC area and want to order these from Ali, she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any suggestions for more cupcake inspiration? Where are your favorite cupcakes from? We’d love to hear. We’re planning to visit L.A. and San Diego in the near future and would love some cupcake recommendations to check out on the other coast.
