Well, its been a while. Life gets in the way, and before you know it, almost two months has gone by. But I MUST tell you about my new favorite little place. Tucked away on the north side of 7th Street in between Avenue A and First, is a little cupcake place called Butter Lane. Not only is it the cutest little store (think French and cheery), but they sell the most delicious cupcakes. The focus at Butter Lane is on pure ingredients and locally sourced dairy to make an exceptional cupcake. And an exceptional cupcake is what they make. The cupcakes aren't fancy - you won't find giant cupcakes covered in milky ways here - but they are delicious nonetheless.
I ordered the vanilla french buttercream cupcake and since they did not have any already made, the women frosted my cupcake right there in front of me. The cupcake itself was the perfect consistency with a slightly crunchy top, while the frosting wasn't overly sweet. And at $2.75, the cupcake did not break the bank.
