Hey everyone,
Having a birhday party for my wife on 34th St. and 9th Ave, and i wanted to get some good cupcakes.
Please any bakery in the area, heard lots about Billy's Bakery and Cupcake Cafe.
Also night time delivery would be a big bonus (8pm or later on a saturday).

    I like Billy's. I think they're open on the later side.

      Babycakes have all natural allergen free cupcakes that taste good.

        Sugar Sweet Sunshine's cupcakes are seriously delicious. Located on the LES. They are open until 11 p.m. on Saturdays. There is a charge for delivery.

            Did my food tour of NYC this past weekend & have to concur here.
            Just wish their live service was as helpful as their telephone's.

            Anyhow, it's still about the cupcakes. DELICIOUS.

              Putting in my vote for Sugar Sweet Sunshine. THE best, paying for delivery would be worth it

              The best cupcakes in New York, in my opinion, are at Batch. Killer flavors, unique combinations - just delicious. Expensive at $3 per, but the ingredients are so high quality it's much more satisfying than your average cupcake.

                Yeah, I agree. I like a lot of the other cupcakes mentioned in this thread, but Batch is more creative. Lots of interesting and unusual flavor combinations, often with yuzu.

                The cupcakes at Sweet Revenge on Carmine are tasty and also beautiful.

                  Batch and Sweet Revenge are my favorite, don't know about delivery though
