It’s fair to say that cupcakes are having somewhat of a moment. In just a few short years the humble cupcake has sky-rocketed in popularity, turning from something whipped up from a packet mix at home to a gourmet treat. The designer cupcake is now a fashion icon in its own right, pictured gracing the lips of movie stars, musicians and even supermodels themselves. So of course, anybody who is anybody has their own cupcake shop. But you don’t have to trudge to each one to sample the tasty treats on offer. We’ve done the hard work for you, and had a nibble on every cupcake in town. So whether you live in Brooklyn or a planning a visit, may we present to you the top five cupcake shops in Brooklyn:
Based in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn Cupcake is regularly referred to as the best cupcake shop in New York. They have a mind-boggling variety of flavours on offer – if you’re feeling adventurous why not try Red Velvet or French Toast flavour? On the more traditional side, there’s Chocolate Raspberry and good old Vanilla.
Not strictly a cupcake specialist (they’re known for their Brooklyn Black Out cake, basically death by chocolate, amplified), but their cupcakes are divine, and gorgeous – the icing on these beauties is a work of art.
Based out in Red Hook, these cupcakes are little cuties. All homemade and with some contemporary classic flavours; the Sweet ‘n’ Salty is great and they do seasonal flavours for the holidays too, like pumpkin for Halloween.
Another cupcake shop known for it’s wide variety of original flavours. Ginger is a great one and Espresso Ganache Walnut. The twist at Ivy’s is they offer a masterclass on Sunday’s for those of you who want to try your own hand a cupcake making. Best part? You get to eath results.
Special mention goes to Robicelli’s in downtown Brooklyn for their yummy bacon cupcakes. That’s bacon flavoured cupcakes. Need we say more?
