PB&J cupcakes in Brooklyn

leave a comment »

If there is anything that immediately draws my attention it’s a pastry shop. Whether it’s some high-end place selling french macarons and ornately-decorated cakes or a little bakeshop with a variety of cookies and cupcakes in their display case, it is always a gorgeous sight.

Wandering Bay Ridge on the last visit to New York City, happened across the Little Cupcake Bakeshop. It is lovely little shop with a variety of goodies in their display case.

Apparently, they also have three locations across New York City – two in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan.

When a place offers such a wide variety of goods, it’s always difficult to choose. However, on this visit, it wasn’t so hard a decision. There was the fact that I was staying with friends in the neighborhood, so a follow-up visit was more than likely; then spotted their peanut butter and jelly cupcake – there’s no denying anything PB&J.

The cute little cupcake, topped with peanut butter cream and drizzled with jelly, was just beautiful; even typing about, the PB&J smell that wafted from the cupcake are coming to mind.

In all honesty, as mentioned before, anything PB&J is a must – but a cupcake might be one of the best variations.

Encountering a sweet monster in Hong Kong

leave a comment »

Wandering Mong Kok, meandering through the market stands just opening up for business, walking in and out of the endless shoe stores, and perusing menus of all the restaurants lining the shopping avenues in the area, attention was grabbed immediately while passing a shop covered in cartoon monsters. Took a closer look and it was a soft-serve stand.

Amongst the bright colors and caricatures, there were a variety of toppings offered for, what appears to be, the standard delicious soft-serve ice cream.

Of course, with a soft spot for peanut butter, it was the first choice – did spend time going back and forth, but it is always good to stick with instincts.

Watched the attendant gather a healthy portion of ice cream into the cone, decorated with the shop’s monsters, followed by sprinkling on powdered peanut butter and garnishing with a pretzel, it looked exactly like the picture on the wall. There was no doubting how amazing it would be and it was exactly what was needed after hours of window-shopping.
