heaven- in cupcake form *
i have just eaten the world's greatest cupcake. i'm sure everyone will have their own opinion on what their personal best is, but after walking past blue apron this afternoon on my coffee break, i noticed NEW cupcakes in the window, cupcakes that definitely weren't blue apron's variety (although those are good, too). i was instantly drawn to the store and plunked down my $2 for what has to be the best thing ever to come out of an oven.
after asking who made these, i found out it was red hook's finest bakery, baked. after finding their site i realized they have garnered quite their share of press- and it's well deserved. after inhaling a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing (with a hint of cinnamon and a red hot on top) i realized i'd found a new favorite cupcake maker. i highly suggest that you check them out if you're in the nyc area. they're painfully delicious.
