I spoke to Key Winstead, the owner of Winstead's on Amsterdam between 81st and 82nd, and confirmed that the baker at the recently closed LES shop, Sticky Fingers, will be baking for Winstead's. His stuff, including the wonderful cupcakes, gingerbread cake, hermit cookies, etc., will be in the store either tomorrow or Thursday at the latest.
The owner of Sticky Fingers wanted nothing from Winstead or the baker -- she just wanted out of the headaches of running a small bakery. In fact, she facilitated the transition. Clearly, she's a class act.
