First Look at CupcakeStop, NYC's New Cupcake Truck


Photographs by Robyn Lee

CupcakeStop previewed their mobile cupcakery on Friday, starting in Chelsea on 23rd Street between 7th and 8th Avenue, then moving to 14th Street between Union Square West and 5th Avenue where they sold-out early for the night (all 650 of them).


Red velvet

They had three flavors: red velvet, Oreo, and triple chocolate. Taste report? I mean, they're cupcakes. Just good simple cupcakes. Moist, not sickeningly sweet, and the frosting wasn't too heavy or anything.


Triple chocolate

When they officially launch this Wednesday, June 3, the menu will be bigger, plus each month they take suggestions. If your flavor gets picked, you get 100 free cupcakes, and apparently they already have 500 suggestions for this month. Eventually, they also want to sell old-fashioned banana pudding, coffee, and tea.



The big ones are $2 and the minis are $1.
