Sweet Little Brooklyn Treat

I was out getting my lunch the other day at work and decided to stop at Lassin and Hennigs to check out what kind of prepared food they had that day.

I walked inside and started to head to the back salad counter when I was distracted by a new bakery item. Red Velvet Cupcakes!

They looked so freakin good I bought one immediately and ran outside to eat it without even buying any lunch!

Wow! This cupcake did not disappoint. The frosting was your classic cream cheese but it had a stronger tang to it than usual. They definitely used a little more sour cream in their recipe rather than extra sugar which was good.

The main thing I was surprised about was how moist the cake was! I mean it was super moist. One of the best textured cakes I have had in a while. The flavor was nice as well. I find most Red Velvet's in the city have either too much of a chocolate flavor or none at all. This was perfect with just a hint of cocoa.

But that's not even the best part!

They come in two sizes- regular and mini. So you can eat a mini and not have the same amount of guilt as when you eat a huge one! The mini's are only $1.25 and completely the right size for satisfying my sweet tooth.

So if you find yourself by the Brooklyn Promenade sometime this summer, you may want to stop off and pick one of these little guys up. You won't be disappointed.
