Where does the good go

Crazy

I don’t like vanilla/vanilla cupcakes anymore. They just taste bland to me now — like chewing flour.

I blame Mary and her freaking Jesus cupcakes for this.

When I was in Vegas, I found this great bakery called the Cupcakery.  They had these awesome lemon cupcakes that did the trick. I ate like five of them everyday. On my last day, I tried these caramel filled chocolate cupcakes that were also pretty boss.

So now, I wander the streets of New York City looking for cupcakes to eat. I’ve acquired a taste for red velvet, but only with cream cheese frosting. And so far only from Billy’s. When one doesn’t have a job, good cupcakes are very important. And when one doesn’t have a job, one spends hours wondering what it means to have lost the taste for that which one so loved at one time.

    Alright! I like me some cupcakes. Let me throw some recommendations at you.

    Molly’s Cupcakes. It’s a Chicago cupcake shop that opened a location in the West Village. The Ron Bennington (named after a radio personality) is the best, but they have a great selection.

    Everything Frosted. It’s a little shop in Chinatown that has a lot of weird flavors. Avoid the cupcakes with the whipped toppings (too thin, like whipped cream), but the other cupcakes are great, especially the Boston Creme.

    hahaha, glad I could be of service!

    Funny, I was just working on a client’s site, Hello Cupcake, a shop down in DC. Unfortunately I’ve never had any of their cupcakes but they all look tasty to me! So next time you are in DC, try them out and let me know if they are any good.

    I think you should give 2 Little Hens another chance their cheesecake frosting is the best.

    Once you’re off white
    You don’t want another bite?

    Cupcakes aren’t cool anymore anyway. Tartlets are where all the action is.

    Tartlet? that sounds suspiciously like pie, you hipster.
