one of the best things about my apartment: there is the best cupcake shop in new york city around my corner.
you really have not had a cupcake until you’ve had one at sweet revenge.
everything is perfection. the cake. the frosting. the delightful presentation. the neighborhood-y feel. the owner that is always there and that is always friendly and that everyone comes in just to say hello to. the fact that each flavor comes rather expertly matched with a wine cocktail or beer. if ever a conversation is leaning slightly towards anything cupcake related, i suggest sweet revenge. i take all of my visitors here.
i have tried them all (thanks mom for the box full of every flavor!) but the gem is definitely the raspberry red velvet with cream cheese frosting. this is the best red velvet. ever. they also have some savory goodies, like the jamaican curry cake (with chickpeas, ricotta, red pepper and coconut curry dipping sauce) and a delectable little croque monsieur, but really, you must have a cupcake!
