Cupcake Cafe

The picture of the cupcakes from Cupcake Cafe on 9th Ave between 40th and 41st are over a year old but their cupcakes are still good.  And gorgeous!  Out of all the cupcake shops I have visited thus far, I think my favorite is still Cupcake Cafe.  We were hosting a dinner and prayer meeting for our Grace and Race events and after the order from Carmine’s didn’t work out, we had to rustle up dinner in Midtown on short notice.  Chinese food from 38th and 8th it was, and then we looked up Cupcake Cafe on the iPhone since we had heard they were good but never tried them before.  Needless to say, they were a hit!

Cupcake Stop (truck)

I had just struck out at the Wicked lottery and it was a wicked hot day today.  I headed up to Columbus Circle to take shelter at the air conditioned Borders when I spotted the Cupcake Stop truck parked at the corner of 58th and 8th.  Diana and I split a Vanilla Latte Cupcake.  The cake was nice and dense without being dry.  Ratio of frosting to cake was absolutely perfect.  Definitely recommend it if you pass by.

Burgers & Cupcakes

Burgers & Cupcakes on 9th Ave at 36th.  Not much explanation needed, though this location was also serving pizza.  I had a crispy chicken sandwich, my friend had a turkey burger and we ordered a basket of chili cheese fries.  Warning, the baskets of fries are large and quite salty.  It was otherwise all really well done using fresh ingredients.  There’s nothing I hate more than being served wilted lettuce.  I get served wilted lettuce fairly frequently in New York and that has become a pet peeve of the Californian in me.  So kudos to Burgers & Cupcakes!  They also gave us our cupcakes gratis after our meal.  I had a carrot cupcake and it was yummy!  The cake was nice and moist (and not too sweet) and the cream cheese icing was smooth.   The meal lifted my spirits and got me pumped up for my job interview the next day!
