Cupcakes in the Village?

Scribbler Feb 18, 2010 06:23 AM

Thanks to all who responded to my previous post about a German restaurant for my daughter's birthday. I've looked into all the recommendations and decided Lederhosen fits our needs the best. The birthday girls wants cupcakes for dessert - is there any great cupcake place in the area where we could go for dessert??

    You won't be too far from Sweet Revenge-and they also have wine! Their cupcakes are super moist and delicious. Whatever you do, don't be tempted to join the masses in the gigantic line at Magnolia! Biiig waste of time/money/calories.

      I prefer Amy's on Bleecker Street -- very flavorful cake. Magnolia cupcakes are way too sweet and frosting is chemically tasting

        Second Amy's, especially on Fridays/Saturdays when they have red velvet!
