Cupcakes - ISO Dutchess County
I am always in search for a fantastic cupcake - I live in Dutchess County. The best one I ever had (so far - including from famous bakeries in NYC) has been the cupcakes now served at Adams's Cafe - in Adam's Fairacre Farms in Poughkeepsie. They are amazing, big and only $1.95! I am trying to figure out where they get them from - I was told that they get them locally but the woman did not divulge where........they get them frozen. They are so delicious - taste like homemade and the frosting is fantastic - not like the fake bakery taste some of the locally bakeries have. They do not have them every day - it is always a great treat when I go and they have them. Also, I know they do not come from the Pastry Garden next door - I have had their cupcakes and they do not hold a candle to these.........
Anyone in the area have them? Anyone know where they came from? Anyone know of any other must have cupcakes to try?
I'm intrigued by your post! I go to the Adam's Fairacre Farms in Lake Katrine, but I have never noticed or tried one of their cupcakes. If I see cupcakes like the one you described, I will investigate for you. Also, have you tried asking the folks who organize the Gardiner Cupcake Festival? I went to the festival in May to cover it for my blog. It was a great time! So many extreme cupcakes everywhere! Good luck on your cupcake quest!
Hi, I did solve my Adams cupcake mystery from last year - they were actually sold in Adams Cafe so that is probably why you did not see them in Lake Katrine. I found out that they get them from the Boar's Head truck - whoever has the route must sell them. They come to them frozen and they put them out - a very large cupcake for $1.95 - I have had a few that were dry though so my excitement about them is now pretty much over. After the Gardiner Cupcake Festival this year (which I cannot believe I had not heard of until this year!), I discovered Moxie cupcakes - I fell in love and all my loyalty goes to them now - after sampling so many in NYC nothing holds a candle to Moxie. I am excited to try the ones at Twisted Soul though - thanks for the tip Applesauce23!
Moxie just opened a cupcake shop on Main Street in the Medusa Building in New Paltz - I encourage everyone to go try them - you will not believe it!
