One of the things I love about NYC (and this may be true for other cities, but I have no personal experience), are the cupcakes. Baked shamelesslyl and with as much buttercream frosting as possible, I love a cupcake baked in NYC.
There are several companies that make them: Cupcake Cafe, Buttercup, Crumbs, Burgers & Cupcakes, (to name a few), and the cupcake featured here today: Sage American Kitchen. Sage is right down the street from me (oh no), and today we tried the Red Velvet and the Imitation Hostess. Both TO-Die-For. Both, so worth whatever I paid for them...I didn't even ask, just handed over the cash.
On Monday nights, we have Family Home Evening and tonight we played name-that-tune with the primary songs my daughter is learning in primary at church this year, and then ate these cupcakes. This was an EXCITING FHE for us...normally we just pick out a scripture story picture from a large file and tell the story with little gusto (unfortunately). I think these Sage cupcakes significantly raised the bar on FHE and might have to become a Monday night tradition.
