Around the corner from Amma, Ricky dragged us to what had he heard was the home of the best cupcakes in New York.
“But Ricky!” I said, “We’re going to be late for our show!”
[We had tickets for WICKED at 8 pm.]
“We could go to four different cupcake shops and still make our show,” said Ricky rolling his eyes. It was 7:13.
“Adam you’re a little anal with time,” said Lisa.
So we went into a lovely-looking cupcake establishment.
“Mmm, look at all the cupcakes,” I said.
“So many choices!” said Lisa, excited.
“I know!” agreed Ricky.
“Do you want to each get a cupcake and share?” said Lisa to Ricky.
“Sure!” said Ricky.
Feeling betrayed, I quickly ordered my own not-to-be-shared cupcake: lemon.
Ricky and Lisa split a sour cream something and a devil dog something.
Here is Ricky with our plate of cupcakes:
How did they fare?
Mine was wonderful. I loved it. I love lemony desserts. But even if it wasn’t lemony, it was a great cupcake. Definitely the best I’ve had in New York (and I’ve been to Magnolia and the Cupcake Cafe). Lisa and Ricky loved theirs too.
Then Ricky went to the bathroom. “Take the camera!” I said.
BUTTERCUP CUPCAKE SHOP BATHROOM REVIEW
According to Ricky, the bathroom was really nice. He said it had a homey feel and that it was very
enjoyable. Unfortunately, the bathroom was out of paper towels.
Despite this, Ricky still enjoyed his bathroom experience. He gives it the following grade.
BONUS THEATER REVIEW: WICKED
At first, I hated Wicked. I thought it was a little cloying. But then Kristen Chenowith sang “Popular” and I got on board. And I had a lot of fun. There were definitely some really bad parts–the ribbon dancer of Oz, for example–but the end of Act One and some of the plot twists in Act Two made the whole endeavor worthwhile.
