Two Little Red Hens Cupcakes!


Before my car accident, I had the pleasure of traveling to New York City this weekend to drink in some art, city life, great sushi, and cupcakes!!!!

Stephen and I hiked all the way up to the Upper East Side to Two Little Red Hens to sample their cupcakes. I had heard from some reliable sources that they were fabulous, and ya'll know how I feel about cupcakes.

At first, I was going to simply get a bunch of the mini cupcakes, but Stephen felt that the regular sizes were a better deal. We ordered white with vanilla buttercream frosting (my all-time favorite for cupcakes, it's classic), chocolate with chocolate buttercream, and a flavor called "Lemon Cloud," which is pictured above.

The verdict: Pure cupcake heaven. Dense, yet soft pillows of cake, and wonderful, creamy French buttercream. The flavors were so incredibly subtle and and delicious. And I really want one of those amazing lemon clouds again.

Should we have a cupcake party, maybe in late August? I know it's hot for baking, but...?

Cupcake party would be good, but there's also the cupcake happy hour at Baltimore Cupcake Company!!! ;)

I had no idea such a thing as cupcake happy hour was possible!

That cupcake looks delicious. I haven't had one in such a long time.
