Best coconut cupcakes on the UES?

nycwriter Mar 1, 2007 08:32 AM

I need some truly delicious coconut cupcakes for a party on Saturday. Would make them myself but no time this wk and I need about 70. Any suggestions of where to order them?

    I know Crumb's on 3rd (and 78th) makes coconut cupcakes.

      Do you know if Crumb's version is any good, tho? Have heard bad things about that bakery.

        I had a cupcake from Crums once and found it awful - little red hen might be able to do them for you though.

          I haven't tried the coconut cupcake, but I have tried others and don't like them at all.

          I think Crumbs is good. I think their cupcakes are a lot better than Magnolia's and other cupcake places.

            I don't know if Two Little Red Hens makes coconut cupcakes, but definitely worth giving them a call. All the other cakes/cupcakes I've had there have been great.

              Buttercup Bakery at 50th and 2nd probably does, they have great cupcakes.

                I like the ones at Yura - 92nd and Madison - they have little mini ones as well.
