So on my travels today I found this cute cupcake shop in Harlem. It is a cute and epic spot called @bakedcravingsny. I got the chance to speak with Craig who gave me a rundown on the bakery. They are completely nut free. They sell donuts, cookies, cupcakes, and cake jars. There's one I'm definitely trying next time I go which was the Red Velvet Strawberry jar...it looked DIVINE!! He had some really interesting alcohol infused flavors but since it was my first time, I went with Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Banana and Vanilla. I usually test a bakery on how well they can bake a simple Vanilla cake and red velvet because it is very easy to mess up Vanilla. And red velvet takes a certain skill level to get right. Most places will give you red colored chocolate cake and say its velvet or worse, give you yellow cake that has been tinted red...ahh!
This place, I give 10 bites. The space was clean and didnt have weird smells. The pastries all looked amazing, I honestly wouldve spent my entire paycheck but then I realized, diabetes runs rampid in my family..lol.
The chocolate banana was different but a very good different. The banana was incorporated into the frosting. The chocolate cake wasnt dry or lacking in flavor.
The red velvet....oh mylanta! I want this cake forever....the cream cheese has the right amount of tanginess to it...the cake itself....it is the perfect taste...it isnt cake with food coloring, they got it down!! Now I'm going to go indulge in my cupcakes..Only 2 are actually mine. The other 2 I decided to be nice and share with my family. Lol.
Go visit them! Tell them tctastytravels sent you!
