Cupcake Café

I picked up a couple cupcakes from Cupcake Café for dessert tonight.

We've passed by this place a few times since moving into the neighborhood. We even went inside at one point, but were quickly turned away by their hot and humid climate.

The air conditioner was on during the current visit. I got one small vanilla and one small chocolate cupcake.

I'm not sure why the lights in their display case are chronically broken. They were that way a few months ago as well. It's a shame because the cupcakes all look very nice when there's nice light.

Here's what they look like in nice light.

Mabel and I really like these cupcakes. Unlike most other cupcakes, the frosting is not too sweet. They are attractive and taste good.

that place is classic hells kitchen. they used to be down a block and across the street on 9th avenue on a corner. some people think they use too much butter, but I'm not sure that's possible.

I agree. For cupcake frosting too much butter is just the right amount.
