390 Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
For such a cheery place: pink exterior, quirky paintings on the windows, and an adorable name like Cupcakeland, I was expecting service with a big old goofy smile. Instead we were surprised with an unexpected aloofness, teetering on rudeness but, what difference does it make if the cupcakes are good, right?
Well, they are quite good and most importantly, not dry – which is often the biggest flaw of a cupcake. I had the coconut with creamy, tangy icing, Jim the cookie. The selection is great – from plain vanilla or chocolate to red velvet, peppermint ganache and carrot. Everyone will find something to take home in a little pink box.
