A while ago, we passed by The Little Cupcake Bakeshop in Brooklyn. With 3 locations (1 in Manhattan and 2 in Brooklyn), it’s a great place to stop by to sweeten up your day.
The brand was launched in 2005 and they explain that 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.”
Plus, they continue by saying that their milk comes from “grass fed cows and the espresso bars serve organic teas and Non-GMO illy caffe.”
At every store, they are awesome in supporting the local community and having “a green architectural design”. They work in different sustainable projects locally, nationally and even internationally.
We do love their well known favorite “Brooklyn Blackout Cake”, but the “Carrot Cupcake” was also very tasty! And, of course, like every good New Yorker, we love the Red Velvet options too!
If you’re thinking they only sell cupcakes, wait! They have also layer cakes, half sheet cakes, cookies, bundt cakes, cheesecakes, ice creams, puddings, pies, sweet bars and even breakfast options!
If you are vegan, they have some really tasty options, so you certainly won’t feel left out!
We love businesses that incentivizes the vegan lifestyle and helps to show that vegan food is just as heavenly and temping…so why not try!
Speaking of which, you should try Eat by Chloe and her sweet store in Soho. All vegan! All amazingly tasty!
You have to agree, it’s a real temptation!
Want to know a super cool thing about them?
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? We definitely need more businesses that have this type of conscious business model.
The store we enjoy the most is the Little Cupcake Bakeshop in Brooklyn, on Vanderbilt Avenue. You’ll be just a few blocks from Prospect Park, so grab your cupcake and go eat it on their lawn!
Oh! Celebrities like Leonardo Di Caprio and Steve Tyler love the spot too, so keep your eyes opened when you go there…maybe you’ll bump into an undercover Hollywood Star.
New Yorkers! Don’t roll your eyes to our comment above. Come on! If you favorite actor was having a cupcake beside you, we know you’d be tempted to talk to him. Why not break down your pre-conceived ideas of “what’s cool” and just ask for a picture!
