This is my kind of post! ;)

I've never been to Billy's but I've only heard mediocre things about it. However...thick and sugar sweet icing? That's my kind of icing! Actually, I like all icing. And as for icing overpowering the cupcake, you haven't experience the extremity of that unless you've eaten one of the monster cupcakes from La Delice Bakery (I don't suggest it).

I tried Sugar Sweet Sunshine's Red Velvet cupcake and felt like the frosting was too light. Still yummy though. Their piggy pudding is really yummy, if you like pudding and shortbread and cream. And fat.

I'm not really into cream puffs so I didn't see the big deal about Beard Papa's. I'm also "eh" about Doughnut Plant but that's because I got an almond glazed donut (or something like that) but there was barely any almond on it. I also tried the Valrhona, which was good, but I don't like doughnuts enough to go back for myself. I don't really have a discerning taste so if I really wanted a doughnut I'd go to the Donut Pub (they also have COOKIES!!!).

I haven't been to Lafayette French Pastry, but I'm going to put it on my list. Heehee.

I don't know where four heart-worthy bakery is, but for more NYC bakery action, Lovescool did a series of "Dessert Week" posts (http://www.lovescool.com/archives/2005/02/28/dessertweek/).

Have you every tried bakeries in Chinatown? They're not like any other bakery but that could make them interesting. Part of the draw for me is the insane cheapness of everything. The other draw is that...everything tastes good. To me. I skip the cakes and go for the various buns with custardy fillings or some other sweet goo.

I had Red Velvet Cake around Christmas with a cream-cheese frosting that was out of this world. I believe that it was purchased over the Internet and delivered. Who knew?

Did you go to all of these during the course of one day?

When we went to Canada last year, we went to a cupcake shop and the cupcakes were cute but really mindblowing. It was more that it was quaint to be getting a cupcake in a shop that was fun. This was pure take away though. Nowhere to sit so a hand carry back to the room was in order.

WHEN DID I EVER MAKE DOUGHNUTS! IT WAS NANNA WHO DID AND THEY WERE THE BEST. WAS THE RAINBOW CAKES AS GOOD AS GRANNY'S? I FELT NAUEOUS-DID YOU REALLY EAT ALL THAT IN ONE DAY? I MADE A RED VELVET CAKE LAST YEAR W/ CRM CHEESE FROSTING AND THOUGHT IT SO INTERESTING--ODD FLAVOR OR SOMETHING LIKE A LITTLE SOUR. THAT'S A 40'S CAKE, I THINK, AS I CAN REMEMBER IT WHEN I WAS VERY YOUNG.
