New Cupcake Love

I am a Cupcake Whore, I confess. I profess my love for The Cupcake Cafe and swear by it...until yesterday.

Today is my father's birthday but I won't be able to see him so I went to my parent's yesterday to pay a visit (and crash). I did skip yoga so I headed down to Chelsea. Walking down 6th Avenue I begin to smell something. Something evil yet tempting. Like the devil tempting Jesus in the desert only he's tempting me with a sweet scent. I follow it and discover Billy's Bakery. I'm going in! After a bit of a wait, I leave with three vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting...



I brought them back to my folks and they loved it. I REALLY loved it. The smell of the icing, oh the smell. It's like butter, really it smelled like butter! I'm embarrassed to admit this but I had the cupcake wrapper in my mouth trying to chew every last crumb and drop of icing. I was tempted to swallow it, it's only paper right? What harm can it do???

Billy is my new love. What we had, Cupcake Cafe, was special with your moist cornmuffin like cupcakes but Billy's frosting is just too much to resist!

Billy's is so close to my office...it's dangerous. Gotta say, I don't understand the love for Cupcake Cafe though, I think their cupcakes are no match for Billy's.

I've learned that now although CC is soooo close to my parents, it is still hard to resist whenever I walk by.

just saw Bobby Flay's Throwdown with a cupcake maker outside of LA at Autie Em's Restaurant....

both hers and Bobby's cupcakes -- I think he's a cupcake anyway :) -- looked dee-lish!

That is so funny, that's how I feel about Crumbs cupcakes! Now I will have to try Billy's Bakery. My boyfriend works nearby there, I will have to convince (beg!) him to go pick one up for me!

I'm the same way about frosting. Some of it is just heavenly! Wish I knew how to make it at home. But then I'd probably double my weight.
