While I'm not much of a dessert person, whenever I walk by Magnolia Bakery I always pop in for a cup cake. Last weekend I was in Chelsea and I stumbled on a new bakery called Billy's (9th Ave between 21st &22nd Sts). I had heard that their cupcakes were amazing-- better than Magnolia's-- so I tried them. I have to admit, they were very very good-- but I wasn't quite convinced they were better than Magnolia's. Magnolia's were moister, and perhaps bigger? Although they looked identical (colorful frosting with matching sprinkles).
Any other cup cake recommendations?
