NYC Trip - Molly's Cupcakes!

Happy Monday everyone!  I am home enjoying a day off from work after the hubs and I had an awesome weekend in NYC.  We stayed with my sorority sister and her fiance in Washington Heights and had a blast watching the Bruins play (and WIN!) in Long Island, brunching in Soho, wandering around Union Square, and cupcake hunting in Greenwich Village!!

We stopped into Molly's Cupcakes on Bleecker Street- you may recognize the name as this shop was the WINNER on Food Network's Cupcake Wars!  What a cool shop.  The variety of cupcakes was impressive - these were unique and fun flavor combinations - there was definitely something for everyone.  I loved the artsy flavor labels!

If for some reason the flavors in the case aren't cutting it, Molly's lets you create your own, too!

A big seller for this cupcake shop is that it's not a teeny tiny storefront with a counter and a register; it's a nice sized cafe with plenty of room to sit, stay, eat, and play.  And by play, I really mean play!  There's a huge case of games that you can break into while enjoying your cupcakes with friends.  If Apples to Apple's isn't your thing, you can still get your 'play' on by enjoying your cupcake on one of the swing benches!

Our fabulous hosts, Amy & Zach, and friend Evan!
Swingy benches- so cool!
We had come here straight from brunch at the Corner Shop Cafe (MUST go--- adorable space and really delicious brunch food like truffled eggs or creme brulee french toast!) so Jake and I considered sharing a cupcake...until we saw the flavors.  After taking one glance at the offerings that "sharing" idea was out the window, hah!  Here's what we tried.

Jake - Cookie Dough (I really need to make these at home, maybe today!)

Amy - Pumpkin Spice

Me - Caramel Butterscotch - PERFECT cake & filling but salted caramel buttercream was way too salty for me

Zach - Cake Batter (oh man that looked good!!)

Evan - Peanut Butter Nutella - he said there was tons of gooey Nutella - YUM!
So needless to say, our cupcake hunt was a great success.  Have you been to Molly's?  What did you think? What other cupcake shops do you love in NYC?  I'll be back in a few weeks looking for another great one to try, so let me know what you think!
