Essential techniques, recipes, and more!
I wanted to, but just couldn't love cupcakes from Tribeca Treats. Above is the Cookies & Cream Cupcake ($2), one out of many cupcake options. A perfectly decent chocolate cake base, moist, but flat and unmemorable in both flavor and texture. Studded with chocolate cookie crumbs, the cream is painfully sugary. Brownies, chocolates, and cookies are also offered, and it may be worth returning for housemade ice cream sandwiches. There's a big communal table at the center of the bakery, good for stopping in for afternoon sweets with friends.
