The next stop on my quest (to try ALL the cupcakes in NYC) was The Cupcake Stop.  Combining my love of food trucks and cupcakes, The Cupcake Stop offers a variety of flavors, including black-and-white, fluffernutter, rocky road, and tiramisu.  A purist, I went with my favorite – the red velvet.

While I have a very clear picture in my head of the perfect red velvet cucake (moist and flavorful cake with dense cream cheese frosting), I’ve had a hard time finding it.  One of my preferred cupcake shops uses buttercream icing for its red velvet, of all things – unbelievable!  Others have dry or flavorless cake.  The Cupcake Stop’s red velvet looked promising – thick frosting and moist-looking cake.   I was a little skeptical of the sprinkles, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me.  I took an excited bite and…

…it was fantastic!  The frosting was decidedly cream cheese with a slightly tangy flavor, and hefty to boot.  The cake was moist and not crumbly at all.  I dare say it is my favorite red velvet cupcake in the city….so far.

I only tried the red velvet, but I hope to return soon to sample some other flavors (and perhaps add another apple to my rating).

Moist and flavorful red velvet cupcake with dense cream cheese frosting. Yum!
