2. Two Little Red Hens

When thinking of New York City cupcakes, most people’s minds go straight to Magnolia. While Magnolia certainly serves up some amazing sweets, we’ve got another location in mind for cupcakes: Two Little Red Hens. This all-American bakery on the Upper East Side is probably best known for its Brooklyn Blackout cupcake. This rich, fudgy cake is enough to make any cupcake lover’s mouth water – and require a glass of milk.

The bakery also serves “chilled ‘n’ filled” key lime and coconut cream cupcakes, along with cheesecakes and other scrumptious desserts. Two Little Red Hens offers delicious sweets for the cake-cravers of New York.
