The cute confection known as the cupcake is popping up all over Westchester.
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a cupcake revolution going on. Once the mainstay of school lunchboxes and birthday parties, the cupcake has become the coolest bakery buy, even in the land of diets. Today’s cupcakes aren’t your regular chocolate and vanilla concoctions, either. They may feature Oreos jutting out on top, have frosting mixed with peanut butter, be sprinkled with candy confetti, or sport mile-high buttercream icing delicately placed on ever-so-moist red velvet cake. What makes these butter-and-sugar confections so popular? They are bite-sized (more fun to eat with your hands!) and decadent enough to satisfy a sweet tooth, without busting a belt. Thankfully, in Westchester, we cupcake aficionados have lots of choices.
