Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. I’ve got some exciting stuff on the blog this week (including a giveaway!) so stay tuned! But first, I was digging though my photo folders just now, and I realized I never wrote about these luscious cupcakes – a TRAVESTY!!! As you may know by now, I LOVE cupcakes. I can’t resist popping into a cupcake store when I pass by one, as recently was the case. My little detour into Butter Lane proved to be well worth it. Located smack dab in the East Village, Butter Lane screams super-cute the minute you walk in:
Just look at all those cupcakes, waiting to be eaten!! (by ME! muahahaha). Loved this. I perused the menu:
… and decided on one of the specials – The Elvis (first cupcake in first photo). A banana cupcake with peanut butter frosting, The Elvis was dense, soft and flavorful (I’m talking about the cupcake here, though I guess the same might have been said about THE Elvis). The peanut butter frosting had heft but didn’t overpower the light banana flavor of the cake. This morsel of deliciousness was gone pronto.
Butter Lane apparently offers cupcake classes – but for gluttony’s sake, I think I’ll just stick to purchasing them for now:
If you’re in the East Village, pop into Butter Lane for a quick cupcake fix in a quaint and cozy shop. You won’t regret it!
Cute cupcakes, cute atmosphere.
Tell me – what cake/frosting combo from the menu would you go for?
