One of the first cupcakes I had in NY, and still one of my favorites. It's just a perfect cupcake, everything you want, and the buttercream is perfect. Cute little spot, my favorite is the chocolate with vanilla icing.

I felt skeptical when I was told this would be my new favorite cupcake place, but low and behold, I have really found my new favorite cupcake place. It is a hole-in-the-wall in the hustle and bustle LES, and has such fun flavors. All the cupcakes are very fresh, and not too expensive. The staff is really great and helpful too!

Sugar Sweet Sunshine is hands down the best “hole in the wall” bakery in Manhattan. The cupcakes are light and fluffy and many of them feature the signature almond buttercream frosting. There are always unique flavors like red velvet, pistachio, lemon and chocolate peanut butter. But the best thing at Sugar Sweet Sunshine is the pudding. The classic banana pudding is the favorite, but check out other winners like the chocolate chip awesomeness which tastes like butterscotch pudding with crushed up chocolate chip cookies and whipped cream. They even have a “shot” size so you don’t have to feel guilty. Grab a dozen to go for a party or get something and eat it there in the bright, kitschy space.
