We can't help ourselves. Just the plain sight of red velvet cupcakes makes us want to hail a cab over to a cupcake store- ANY cupcake store in the city. But in case you are slightly pickier than us, BlackBook Mag has provided a list of Top Ten Bakeries with red velvet cupcakes.
The list contains vegan bakeries like Babycakes and Atlas Cafe & Bakery, Solomon's Porch in Brooklyn South, and the usual contenders, like Crumbs, Sugarsweet Sunshine, and Billy's.
BBMag doesn't exactly explain why these particular bakeries should be in the top 10 (is the cream cheese frosting creamier than others? are the sprinkles prettier?) but it does have a shortlist of reasons why people would want to visit that particular bakery in the first place. Hey, so long as red velvet is revered as a specialty, we're not going to complain.
