Obsession of the week

This week clearly was all about cupcakes.

It started with the Buttercup / Billy’s Smackdown. Continued with a stop at Out of the Kitchen. Then today, I had a couple of the most heavenly flavors yet.

I visited Keavy at Brooklyn’s Brownstoners Flea Market and had a Kumquat strawberries and cream mini cupcake. Two bites of strawberry-wow flavor. And then onto Batch in the West Village. At Mr. Ong’s suggestion, I tried the carrot and salted caramel cupcake, which was, yes, divine. But the new strawberry frosting/rhubarb filling is even better. Such vibrant, fruity flavors. And the cake and frosting have that beautiful home-baked texture and density.

Instead of being cupcaked out, I’m dying for more Kumquat and Batch.
