10 Cupcakes to try

In part I of the sweetness galore, I shared my favorite Ice Cream spots with you. But I had more guilty pleasures, not just ice cream but also cakes, donuts, cookies, chocolate martini’s, candy bars…. Basically everything sweet and unhealthy. Now the last sweet thing I’d like to share with you are cupcakes. I cannot imagine that there’s a less cupcake minded city than New York City. Besides the big M sign, there’s not just a coffee shop on every corner. Also a cupcake place. There’s no way that I will be able to try them all out, but here are my 10 favorites so far (in random order):

 1. A Coconut Cupcake @ DC Cupcakes 

(111 Mercer street, between Spring and Prince street. Soho)

DC Cupcakes New York

 2. Mini Cupcakes  @ Baked By Melissa (various locations all over)

25 Cakes

Source: Target

I am thinking about what cake I would like to eat at my wedding which will be held this august. Since my theme colors are peach, coral, pink and some gold the cake should definitely contain at least one of these colors. Besides the cake being colorful, I also like the cake to to be pretty, romantic and fun. Below I selected 25 cakes that I love so far.


Wat voor een bruidstaart zal ik eens gaan eten op mijn grote dag? Liefst een taart die tenminste een van de thema kleuren (perzik, koraal, roze en een beetje goud) bevat. Naast kleurrijke taarten houd ik zelf van pretty, romantische taarten die niet al te gewoon zijn. Hieronder heb ik 25 taarten geselecteerd die ik persoonlijk mooi vind.
