The Best Cupcake in New York?


After conducting an epic search for the best cupcake in the city, Serious Eats has awarded the honor to Baked in Red Hook for its “consistently moist cake, good cake-to-frosting ratio, and interesting flavors that highlighted the title ingredient.” Tellingly, behemoths like Crumbs and Magnolia didn’t even make it into the top 12, and neither did smaller but much-fetishized shops like Butter Lane and Babycakes. Merely looking at the slideshow photos is enough to induce a sugar coma; file this under “Tough Job, but Somebody Had to Do It.”
