Johnna’s Pick of the Week (Travel Edition): Make My Cake (NYC)

[ 0 ] December 4, 2008 |

Sweets in the City. If you’re looking for love in New York you turn to Sex and the City, if you’re looking for sweets Make My Cake is where you go. All the cupcakes you can eat!! We love the red velvet cupcakes with the pecan topped icing. The cheesecake is worth a commute uptown to Harlem and the clear seating decor makes it even more fun for sweet treats. The bakery has all kinds of goodies for you to collect on your way out the door: skim through the card rack or fun lollipops they have hanging around as part of your souvenir shopping. JKGF does have to forewarn you, however: We are NOT bakers, we repeat we are NOT bakers…but for some non-bakers we know when our sugar tooth has been hit with something good and Make My Cake definitely gave us the comfort needed on a cold winter night in New York City.
