There goes my diet!


I just started working on a project that is a hop, skip and a jump from Billy’s Bakery on Ninth Avenue. Needless to say, I picked up a delicious treat for myself after my walk though today. I can already tell that it's going to take a lot of will power not to go there every time I visit the job site! The cupcakes are delicious and the cakes are as pretty as they are yummy! I can also personally vouch for the pumpkin square. Billy's Bakery would also make a great place to pick up some sweets for your Valentine next month. Or you could just treat yourself! You're worth it! Bon Weekend!

Red Door Home said...

Yummy! They look so good. I don't think I would be able to go by without buying a cupcake or two.

ALL of that looks SOOO amazingly yummy! I have such a sweet tooth and I would have to have will power if I was passing by this divine place too! But sometimes it sure is nice to get yourself a lil treat! ;)

If I wasn't already running on 100% sugar at the moment, I would be incredibly tempted.

those cupcakes look delicious, especially the red velvet ones.. those are my weakness. PS- If you're ever in Chicago, you must stop by Sweet Mandy B's bakery in Lincoln Park! it's absolute heaven.

Heather said...

Oh, I spy some red velvet cupcakes in the fourth picture. That's just not fair to those of us who don't live in NY! :)

YUM... so very jealous...
If you're in London, make sure to visit the Hummingbird Bakery. They also make yummy baked goods.

Maison Luxe said...

YUM! Wish I had known about this place when I was in town last week. Or maybe not! :)

Will see you there next time I'm in NYC!

Those look so delicious! There is a cupcake place in New Olreans that I love and although I don't need a cupcake, it sure would taste yummy!

I was so happy to see this! As I sit here eating a double chocolate stuffed with dark chocolate mousse. Tomorrow I'll eat my salted carmel cupcake.

How does Billy's compare to Prantl's on Walnut St here in the 'Burgh? Anything as good as the Burnt Almond Torte?

I work across the street from a cupcake shop and it is dangerous. Red velvet cupcakes are bad news bears!

pinknest said...

It's my favorite cupcake in NYC. *sigh* So dangerous. So delicious.
