Cupcakes on Wheels, in Park Slope, Brooklyn

Cupcake Stop Truck & Cupcake Enthusiast

Ah, who doesn't love a cupcake?

The Cupcakestop Truck is seen regularly in Park Slope, as well as Midtown, SoHo and the Upper East Side. They have a brick and mortar shop at 20th Street and Sixth Avenue, and a Twitter feed announcing truck locations in case your hankering needs a quick fix.

Cupcakes come in some 80 flavors, ranging from old-fashioned to gourmet. Enjoy Coconut Cream (coconut cake with cream cheese frosting), S'mores (devil's food cake with chocolate fudge frosting, marshmellow and a graham cracker) or Tiramisu (sponge cake dipped in espresso with sweet cream cheese frosting). Mmmmm...

The business was started in 2009 by a law school student, and has already been featured on the Food Network on cable television. The bakers are graduates of the French Culinary Institute.

My fiance Mark (not pictured above) tried the Oreo Cookie Swirl and Red Velvet, and gives them an enthusiastic two thumbs up. His review:

'Pretty good. Delicious, actually. They densen up when put in the fridge.'
(By 'densen', Mark means that the frosting and cake become more dense).

Order on their online store to receive cupcakes anywhere in the world. Check out their cute website here.

Ha Joe,

...or you could own your own cupcake truck! You'd make a killing.

Hi Lily
Ha. The photos of their cupcakes are pretty nice, and the menu is incredible. I envy the bakers!

Ha Matt!

Hi T.Becque
I have to agree with you. And they have multiple trucks. There is no escape.
