food : ode to the cupcake



a sublime combination : frosting & cake perfection : dear cupcake

My attempts in haiku might need a lot of work, but my love for cupcakes is refined. In my opinion, Cheeks Bakery in Williamsburg makes the best cupcakes in NYC. So, when you come to town or if you live here, try to visit this charming bakery. I know what you're thinking - 'What about 'Mag...?'. Trust me.

xo, Cindy

PS I hope Scott gets me some of these for my birthday this weekend - hint, hint ;)!

Early birthday greetings from me, too! I love that shot of the empty baking cup; it tells a story of something delicious fully consumed. I can just see a satisfied smile on your face!

Such a pretty tablecloth. I like the Stereophonics too. Saw them in concert a few years ago. In person they were sort of dirty, messy, smoky, just sort of nasty in appearance and behavior- perfect I think for British rockers. The Kooks seem to be the same way:)

cindy : quaint said...

thanks everyone! i can't wait for this week to be over. i need a cupcake or two or three.

chelsea - yes, i think the stereophonics and the kooks are old school rockers. at least that's what i attribute the grit and grime to ;)!

Melissa de la Fuente said...

cindy : quaint said...

Bonbon Oiseau said...

luuhhhuve cheeks---my birthday cake usually comes from there and although i'm not really supposed to eat things with wheat, i sacrifice a digestive nightmare just for cheeks (i like billy;'s bakery in chelsea too --i'm a sucker for cupcakes i shouldnt eat.)

cindy : quaint said...

sometimes a cupcake with a pepto-bismol chaser is just what the doctor ordered ;). love billy's too and had one at work yesterday.
