Little Cupcake Bakeshop Pushes Open Its Doors and Welcomes Waiting Foodies

The only thing I love as much as the rush I get from a moist and creamy cupcake is a classy little bakery where I can take a seat and grab a cup of coffee. I remember my sugar-filled days of patronizing the original Little Cupcake Bakeshop where I grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, so I am enthused to report that a branch opened to the masses of Manhattan earlier this month.

Admittedly, once I heard about the new location, I stalked 30 Prince Street like it housed a slew of famous celebrities. After months of what felt like never ending renovations, the plywood was finally peeled away to reveal a striped mint and white wraparound awning, adorable little ivory marble tables, bright chandeliers, and white and black checkered flooring.

The new corner shop boasts quite a few little bites of heaven. The Coconut Cloud and German Chocolate cupcakes are two pleasantly fresh and distinctly-flavored treats, And if you’ve been overloading on those Crumbs cupcakes, Little Cupcake offers a variety of other options, from bars to banana bread pudding that could compete with Magnolias. Cupcakes are about $2.00 each, bars are $2.50, and puddings range from $4.00 to $5.00. A large slice of cake will set you back approximately $5.00.

Those concerned with our ever-growing carbon footprint will be pleased to know that the bakeshop prides itself on being a “green” establishment. Aside from using energy-efficient lighting, the shop donates proceeds to Carbon Fund, an organization that plants trees.

You can place a large order by calling 212-941-9100. The Little Cupcake Bakeshop is open Monday through Friday 7am to11pm;
 Saturday 8am to 12am; and Sunday 8am to 11pm. For a complete menu and list of prices, visit their site (http://www.littlecupcakebakeshop.com/). These cupcakes might be tiny, but they can satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth.
