There is one thing that is for certain, New York City is cupcake crazy. You can find a cupcake shop just about anywhere. Buttercup Bake Shop in Midtown East definitely stands out with their delicious classic American desserts. They have much more than just cupcakes at Buttercup Bake Shop. You can choose from scrumptious layer cakes, pies, bars, squares and puddings. The cupcakes come in regular size and mini because sometimes just a mini cupcake will satisfy your sweet tooth. Choose from flavors such as red velvet, chocolate chip cookie dough, devil dog and lemon. You can even order online for your convenience. 


I'm usually not a huge cupcake person, but the apple pie cupcake was pretty good. I also bought the lemon bar, but it was a little too sweet for what I was looking for.
