Yeah, I’m sure you’re tired of the whole cupcake frenzy by now, and by the looks of it, The Little Cupcake Shop in Soho doesn’t seem to offer anything different from the hackneyed Magnolia or Billy’s bakeshops.
But…if you steer your eyes to the bottom shelf of the display case, you’ll find a variety of pretty unique flavors. I had a Friday off and Tru and I decided to indulge in some sweets after Cafe Habana.
Cue my lemon meringue cupcake.
The cake was fresh and moist, built sans gratuitously sweet icing. Instead, the topping was light and fluffy, bursting with even more lemony flavor. The space is also a bit bigger than its fellow Manhattan cupcakeries, so it’s a lovely place to just lounge over coffee and cake.
