Vendor of the Week: Cupcake Stop

By Maritza Myrthil

After enjoying a delicious dinner downtown recently, my friends and I noticed a large line of people forming by a truck. At first we thought it was an ice cream truck, but than as we walked closer we realized it was even more magical. It was a cupcake truck! Natural, a round of cupcakes was in order.

Cupcake-only bakeries, or Cupcakeries, are popping up all over the place, but Cupcake Stop is New York City’s first mobile gourmet cupcake shop, opened for business last year.

It was very hard to decide on a cupcake selection because the menu seemed endless. They had so many flavors, from Chocolate Oreo Crumb to Vanilla Vanilla and Funfetti. In fact, Cupcake Stop has more than 48 assorted flavors of cupcakes. I finally settled on a red velvet cupcake and it was absolutely delicious!

The best thing about Cupcake Stop cupcakes is that they are very cheap! A mini cupcake costs only $1 and a regular cupcake is $2.25. For college students, these prices are perfect! What could possibly be better than cheap and tasty desserts?

So my fellow Rams, if you ever spot a Cupcake Stop truck, I suggest you stop by and treat yourself! You won’t be disappointed!

Cupcake Stop has many locations that vary throughout the week. Its regular midtown docking station is on 50th St. between 6th and 7th Aves., where it is generally stationed on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. It’s a bit of a walk from campus, but with summer weather and the motivation to burn a few extra calories before enjoying a delicious cupcake, it’s so worth it! Parking locations may vary, so checking up before you make the walk is always a good idea. You can follow @Cupcake Stop on Twitter for up-to-the-minute location updates and other exciting cupcake news!

Also, look out for their new bricks-and-mortar storefront, opening this summer:

Limelight Marketplace, 1st Floor
47 W. 20th St. at 6th Ave.

    $2.25 for flour sugar and eggs…are you kidding! Only in a city this expensive would and with gas prices so high would you call that a deal.
