Molly’s Cupcakes

Molly’s Cupcakes! Besides all the traditional flavors, you can mix your toppings and create your ideal cupcake! And there are options for mouth-watering stuffed cupcakes like this one in the picture! People’s favorite one is the Red Velvet, you can bet on it and I’m sure you will like it. (you won’t get it wrong!) Something very nice and important mentioning is that the company supports local community schools, reverting part of the sale to the cause. So you can eat and do a good deed at the same time! The bakery is in the West Village at 228 Bleecker Street.



Buttercup Bake Shop

Believe it or not I was flabbergasted when I heard that the famous Buttercup Bake Shop was founded by no one else other than the creator of Magnolia Bakery! Yes, Jennifer Appel opened Magnolia Bakery in the West Village in 1996 and then ventured out on her own, opening the Buttercup Bake Shop in 1999. And all the goodies they have it there are a delight! The store takes orders for events as well and  you can order it online. To try all the cupcake variations and other menu scrumptious goodies in person, there are 4 addresses, click HERE to see them all!
