NEW YORK: EAT SEE PLAY SHOP SLEEP OUT OF TOWN

CHELSEA

Billy’s Bakery. Diagnosis…Delicious

The cupcake competition in New York has swelled to epic proportions and it seems like there are cupcake pop-up shops everywhere all of a sudden. I am not sure why, as a society, we have become so obsessed with this portable baked good but who’s complaining? I am totally psyched to be able to get my hands on one in a moments notice.

Having young kids, I have sampled pretty much all of the major places in town and I am picking a landslide winner (drum roll). I really do love Billy’s Bakery the best because their cupcakes not only TASTE but LOOK home-made. They do not try too hard to be what they are not and they certainly don’t give you the attitude like some of the others. They come in pretty old-fashioned colors and strike the perfect balance with a generous heap of creamy icing supported by moist and sweet cake.

Billy’s has two little shops – one in Tribeca and one in Chelsea — and offer a nice selection of colorful cupcakes, cakes and pies. And if you need a gluten/dairy free alternative then there is Babycakes – which is also delicious.
