“One of my favorite New York City mottoes is: Life is short, eat dessert first. New York City is famous for its cupcakes. With a friend of mine, I made a summer pilgrimage to find the best cupcake in New York City.
We went to Magnolia Bakery, Buttercup Bake Shop, Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery, and Crumbs Bakery. After a whole day of eating cupcakes, we decided that Magnolia’s icing was melt-in-your-mouth sweet, and Sugar Sweet Sunshine takes the cake on “best cupcake overall.”
