Obviously my NY itinerary would always include Cupcake haunts... some old favs and some new discoveries... and Santa was also good to me with my very own Cupcake stocking!
I sampled 5 cupcake haunts.... fortunately just round the corner to my hotel was the Buttercup bakeshop, a lovely Breakfast Cupcake & coffee was sampled here. On another walkabout I stumbled upon Crumbs Bake shop which was lovely (there are several of these dotted around NY)
Whilst ambling around Soho I was captivated by a little pop-up ButterLane Cupcake store which was there just for December... how lucky was I. This was a welcome retreat on a cold wet day!.. how cute is the delivery bicycle in the window.
On the same day parked in Broadway was the fantastic Cupcake Van... how fab is this!
My last Cupcake stop in NY was of course the fabulous Magnolia Bakery there are 3 magnolia's now in NY, Columbus circle, Rockefeller centre and the original Bleecker Street ... I arrived anticipating Q's but as you can see it was crowd free!... Here i sampled the legendary Red Velvet ....mmmm very yummy.
I loved them all, if only we had a cupcake van here!......
Obviously with my cupcake obsession , it was never going to be hard to fill a stocking with treats... here are some of my goodies that the Cupcake Elf delivered this year, several to adorn my desk: Cupcake screen wipe,
Desk calendar 365 days of cupcake recipes!
Cookie cutters, Calendars & diary and Handwarmers... just what i need in my pocket at rugby!
