A while ago, we passed by The Little Cupcake Shop's store in Brooklyn. With 3 locations (1 in Manhattan - SoHo, and 2 in Brooklyn), it's a great place to stop by to sweeten up your day.
The brand was launched in 2005 and their desserts are produced by "using only the freshest, sustainable ingredients, predominantly sourcing locally, from farms in the Hudson Valley, Catskills, Vermont, New Jersey, and in strides, seasonally, with all baking done in small batches on-site, everyday. No shortening. No preservatives.”
Their milk is from "grass fed cows and the espresso bars serve organic teas and Non-GMO illy caffe.”
Every single store they have, has "a green architectural design and are active in supporting local community groups, and sustainable development initiatives at local, national and international level."
We do love their well known favorite "Brooklyn Blackout Cake”, but the "Carrot Cupcake" was also very tasty!
Want to know a super cool thing about them? Well, their "goal is to create a new business model that works for people and the planet.
Each Little Cupcake Bakeshop institutes energy efficient practices, appliances, equipment and tools.”
How amazing is this?
The one we most like is their store in Brooklyn, at 598 Vanderbilt Avenue.
Oh! Celebrities like Leonardo Di Caprio and Steve Tyler love the spot, so keep your eyes opened when you go there...maybe you'll bump into an undercover Hollywood Star!
