Yes, this is a cooking blog, but if you haven’t noticed, I am obsessed with Cupcakes.

Recently, Serious Eats did a ““Best Cupcake of New York City”. I was delighted to see Robicellis on the list. (Surprisingly, the cupcakes used in the taste test from Robicellis were over a week old! And they still placed 10th in the City!)

(BTW, if you have not seen it yet, go watch the Robicelli’s Cupcake War Audition Tape)

Number one in the city was Baked, based in Red Hook. For me, Robicellis were better than Baked. However, Baked Totally won over my heart with their Red Velvet Cupcake. Why?


Ahem, sorry for the caps. I have no idea where the whole “Red Velvet with Cream Cheese” craze started. The original, and correct, icing is Cooked Flour Frosting. This frosting can be tricky to get right, but it tasted oh so divine.

Surprisingly, I have done only a few cupcakes on this blog.

What type of cupcakes would you like to see?


  1. Spicy Mexican Chocolate CUPCAKES? Are you kidding me?? Holy YUM!

    Forgive my ignorance – how is sugar not Vegan? *curious cat*

    Cane sugar has to be filtered to be white. Many companies use bone char (literally, charred bones) as the filter, so most conventional sugar is not vegan. Organic brands, and a few others use other filters, and are thus vegan (and typically more expensive)
