This was goddamn awesome!
That was the thought we all had in our drunken stupor as we downed our amazing cupcakes and Awesome Pudding. Yes, it really is called Awesome Pudding. For a good reason!
It was our first time ever visiting Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery here in NYC on the Lower East Side. It’s a tiny shop that makes some damn fine cupcakes. Only a few tables and chairs to sit at. Friendly counter service. Lots to choose from to satisfy that sweet tooth craving. I am kicking myself for not partaking in their glorious cupcakery sooner.
Could not resist dropping in here the other night after happy hour to sample some of the sugary treats that were beckoning me to devour. Terrific cupcakes, amazing frosting, and moist cake. A friend had a pistachio cupcake and drooled over it. I had a spiced pumpkin which I inhaled it was so good. Dat frosting tho! Fluffy, cream cheesy, orgasmic! Walnut slivers on top. If I am offered a least meal before I die these cupcakes must be the dessert list!
Oh, and that Awesome Pudding was no joke. The cup we recieved was dense and felt like a brick in your hand. You could almost use it as a weapon against a purse snatcher. We all shared this one. Peanut butter chocolate flavor which was described by one of us as “what girl scout cookies tasted like before they went gluten-free” which was a great way to explain it. Sorry, not sorry, but most things gluten free taste like cardboard. No reason to make everything gluten free. Glad this wasn’t! My taste buds bow to their greatness here.
The Awesome Pudding is pretty effing awesome! Along with their cupcakes which are only $2. Really, only $2! See, you can get something cheap in NYC that’s actually exceptional.

Yummy Phil!~ Wishing you a great weekend ahead :star: Aquileana 😀
Hope you had a great weekend filled with gluttony!!!! 🙂
And now I need a cupcake. You are so cruel.
If the goal of my blog is to torture those out there with food porn, then I have succeeded!
That look and sound amazing! We have a place in Houston called CRAVE Cupcakes. I was never a big fan of cupcakes in general, but those cupcakes were like nothing I’d ever had before! It sounds like the ones at Sugar Sweet Sunshine are the same! Cupcakes on a whole new level! 🙂
We have so many cupcake shops here now that it’s getting hard to keep track. Heck, Sprinkles has a cupcake ATM now!
Those cupcakes look awesome! You find the coolest places!
Way too many good places here in NYC! I might just have to buy a treadmill for my apartment on top of the gym I go to!
$2 cupcakes in Manhattan?!! I have got to go to this place! They look so yummy 😀
Thanks for dropping by and commenting!
Yeah, right? We couldn’t believe it ourselves! $2 and really delicious!
I must have.
Ooooh……that sounds kind of dirty! Hope you get some! 😉
Cupcakes and Awesome Puddings! Yum! I don’t know why you don’t weigh 400 lbs!
I am probably pushing maximum density soon! Just hope my gym never closes!
Wow, I love how cheap they are! I think I’d love that pumpkin spice cupcake, too. You’re making me miss the city even more than I already do- definitely need to plan a day down there in the next few weeks!
When you come back hit this place up for some cupcakes. They are the real deal. That frosting is killer.
I love the pudding idea. I always enjoyed pudding as a kid and it really lost it’s goodness once it was put in those prepackaged cups in the refrigerated section of our markets …ugh.
These do look awesome and I want one now!!!!!!
I agree! We used to have Snack Packs chocolate pudding in the cans. Damn, that stuff was good.
I have to run away from this post…from the cupcakes…now…
You can run……but you can’t hide!
Please send a dozen cupcakes and Awesome Pudding to California. I’m drooling over here!
No! We need them for ourselves. You can keep all the Mexican food! 🙂
This is next on my list… and handily just ten minutes from my office. I’ll walk off the calories in 10 minutes, right?! Good.
Thanks for sharing!
If this place was only ten minutes from my office I would be in big trouble!
Oh yeah – cupcakes. The creamier, the yummier. The yummier, the better! What is it with people when they talk of gluten-free, fat-free, sugar-free? The point of a cupcake is to have a handful of heaven. if you take everything out of it, it isn’t heaven, is it? It’s hell.
Demand “proper” cupcakes. Just say No!
Preach sister! You got that right! Get that gluten free sugar free abomination out of my face!
