Robicelli’s Cupcakes Will Pop Up in Nolita This Weekend


Following the Open Gallery pop-up they participated in at the beginning of January, Robicelli’s Cupcakes is returning for a second go-round in Nolita.

On Saturday, January 29, Matt and Allison Robicelli will bring cupcake flavors old and new to Park Here, the gallery’s pop-up indoor park at 201 Mulberry Street. From 11 a.m. till 6 p.m., they’ll be selling creations like chocolate peanut butter pretzel, El Guapo (sweet corn cake, cilantro lime buttercream), Chicken ‘n’ Waffles, and the Hot Josh, described by Allison Robicelli as “the most controversial cupcake of our marriage.” Why? Because these are its ingredients: “Celery root & carrot cake with Point Reyes blue cheese buttercream and citrus tinged Buffalo chicken.”

The Robicellis have apparently been arguing since October 2009 over whether this thing should even exist. One could predict that customer reactions this Saturday will settle the matter once and for all.
