Review: Cake and Shake

New York City! What a place! I love food, so it was heaven for a week. I knew I would be eating lots of cupcakes, so I had to pace myself. I made a little map and referred to it often as I traveled around the city.

On my first real tourist day, I spotted a cupcake stand setting up as I came out of The Met. Since I wasn't in a hurry, I watched them set up and was the first person in line when they were ready.

Cake & Shake sets up their cart in front of The Met daily. They have been at this location for about nine months. They feature 5 of 20 cupcakes daily, along with 3 of 8 shakes.

You know me...I always have a hard time deciding what to get. Although I wanted to try them all, I didn't want to be sick on my first day. I choose Whoozeewhatsit. This cupcake with a unique name had milk chocolate cake, caramel mousse, and nougat frosting.

I have lots of good things to say about this cupcake. The cake was moist and delicious. Because it was milk chocolate cake, it was sweeter than I expected. Caramel had seeped into the top of the cake making it oh-so-good! The proportion of cake to frosting was just right. This unique cupcake was easily my favorite of the whole trip.

Beside the location at The Met, Cake & Shake also has a location at Washington Square Park. If you are ever in New York, you must find Cake & Shake to taste a delicious cupcake and maybe a shake too. Their cupcakes are $3 each.

I bought a Disney Princesses "Cupcakes and More" cookbook at Disneyland last nite and thought of your blog. The cupcakes look delicious and are soooo cute. I think it's right up your alley. :)
