Twill make old women young and fresh,
Create new motions of the flesh.
And cause them long for you know what,
If they but taste of chocolate.
Cupcakes have always been a favorite in NYC. Perfect size and edible without utensils. That being said I love cupcakes. I am willing to say of bakery cupcakes I would nominate Tonnie's as my favorite. Well...my cupcake experience has been taken to a new level. A Village find of Sweet Revenge. Nestled on the corner of Carmine and Bedford the scene is warm and inviting. A motley crew of nine moms celebrating the Aquarians in the crowd gathered to check it out. Marlo, the owner, has a pleasing personality and was holding down the fort solo for much of the night. Did I mention it was packed? We started with wine, champagne and some lighter weight beverages. Delightful cheese plates and savory cakes soon followed. To cap off the night we had to indulge in cupcakes. In order to experience all the goods we asked for a flight of cupcakes. Crimson and Creme, Carrot, Pure Vanilla, Dirty (chocolate) were hard to rank because they were all amazing. There is still an assortment of flavors to check out. Definitely will be back.
If your post dinner plans find you on Carmine check it out. Or better yet, start at Sweet Revenge. Dessert is often meant to be eaten first...right?
