Review: Sweeties NYC Cupcakes

The What: Sweeties New York Pastry Co: Carrot and Banana Cupcakes
The What’s Up: Brooklyn (home) based bakery enters the vegan cupcake wars. I tried two current flavors: Carrot Cake with Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting and Banana with Peanut Butter.
The Yes: How would I describe Sweeties cupcakes in one word? Delicious. Here’s the what’s what:
Banana Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting: The banana flavor was both subtle (and nutty) while being quite rich; the frosting was velvety and smooth. The two flavors played off each other well; the addition of banana chips (on top) was a winner. This was my favorite of the two.
Carrot Cupcake with “Cream Cheese” Frosting: While the cake part had just a hint of carrot and spice it managed to stay bright in its flavor; both moist and airy. I couldn’t tell if there was meant to be a salty undertone to the cupcake but I loved it nonetheless. The “cream cheese” frosting had more of a “buttercream” flavor than what I had hoped but it was still delectable.*
The No: See (the sorta “no”) * above.
The Word: Sweeties NYC cupcakes are deliciously rich and moist. The two cupcakes I tried were both delicate and balanced. I’m a believer.
The Info: Sweeties New York Pastry Company can be found at the GreenPoint Food Market. More information can be found at their website.
