Sweets Week: Day 4: Buttercup Bake Shop

I think most New Yorkers know about Buttercup Bake Shop and have their thoughts on which is better, Buttercup or Magnolia Bakery.  I have been going to both since before Magnolia’s Sex and the City fame.  I prefer Buttercup, and not just because it has shorter lines.  I have fond memories of eating a Lady Baltimore cupcake and its perfect meringue frosting after nights of carousing the local Irish pubs on 2nd Avenue.  (I don’t like meringue frosting usually, but Buttercup does it right.)  I’m sure I’ve tried most of the cupcakes at Buttercup.  So, this time, I thought I’d try a slice of cake.  And what a slice it was–large enough for two, or so I thought after dinner at the Palm.

Verdict:  Same great frosting, fresh cake, delish filling.  Wouldn’t change a thing except maybe eating it on an empty stomach.
