I am completely in love with this bakery. I make special trips from NJ to come get treats here now and then. My two faves are Brooklyn Blackout cake/cupcake or the Peanut Butter/Chocolate Cupcake, but I’ve never had anything from here I wouldn’t get again!

A friend brought me here to try the best cupcake she has ever had. Cupcakes were much better than my expectations. Delicious and moist. The Chocolate peanut butter was my favorite of the ones I tried. I will be coming back when I visit again.
