Dessert tonight? A cupcake from quite possibly my favorite bakery in NYC: Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery. I love their cupcakes. The boyfriend actually surprised me with 28 of these guys for my 28th birthday back in November. I’d invited a bunch of people out to a bar, so we all got to have cupcakes! It might have been the best surprise ever.
I borrowed this photo from their website, where you can also read the story of Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery’s beginning. It’s another tale of two brave friends who built their now-booming business with dedication and a real love for what they do. “Peg & Deb don’t claim to be pastry chefs-just two girls who set out to do their own thing. They wanted to create an atmosphere that’s warm, inviting, fun and remains carefree enough to believe in the “Why Not?”
Love that. So much.
After having had a full, heavy meal already tonight, I sat in their shop with a friend and enjoyed every morsel of my chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream. We walked it off a bit afterwards, though, which felt good. The sweet treat was as delicious as always and very filling.
Now I’m going to fall happily into bed with memories of a lovely Friday evening in the city dancing through my head.
