Cupcakes: Butter Lane

Eating Out
3apples

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.

    Yum! I love that you can purchase and extra frosting shot for $1. We'll definitely stop by this place when we got back to New York in a couple of weeks 🙂

    Ooh, I'm curious, what is a FROSTING SHOT?! Whatever it is, it sounds delicious. As does the Elvis cupcake.

    omg cupcakes!! I wish we had more cupcake stores here I love stopping by and having a good cupcake now and then instead of having to make them.

    For some reason I feel like I haven't visited your blog in a bit! I missed you~ hhaha

    Anyhow I love that they offer classes that is definitely something that I would want to try but I think I would eat more than I would take home. hmmmm

    I loooooove Butter Lane– one of my favorites. Have you tried Sugar Sweet Sunshine (126 Rivington) or Sweet Revenge (62 Carmine)? Sugar Sweet Sunshine has really cheap (but still delicious) cupcakes, and Sweet Revenge does a wine/beer pairing with their cupcakes. Isn't so strange how cupcakes have suddenly become this cultural phenomenon in New York City?

    I just did their cupcake class and it was very fun — lots of great tips (and I went home with 12 cupcakes, 5 of which I ate that night. talk about a sugar high!)
