Molly’s Cupcakes Rating: 9
So… I’ve been to “Molly’s Cupcakes” a few times now and clearly I need to have a word with this betch. Basically, cupcakes are to 2014 as Juicy sweat suits were to 2005. With that being said literally every bodega, corner store, super market etc. is jumping on the cute cupcake bandwagon. Like… even fucking Duane Reade, but hopefully by now we have all learned that not all cupcakes are created equal.
I give you, Molly’s Cupcakes.
Not dying for the interior BUT they do have swings for seats which is cute.
Oh, you have no idea. These cupcakes make looooove to the camera. Bite one in half and let the magic happen – every cupcake has some sort of ridiculously drippy and decadent filling that will literally have your instagram followers impregnated with a food baby at first sight.
Is there a chance I’ll run into a celebrity?
Ryan Gosling’s face is on their tip jar… does that count?
THAT time of the month. They have a cure for your craving, guaranteed.
Neighborhood: West Village
Cupcake lovers, tourists, hot dads with their kids, the sad intern girl who was sent to order cupcakes for the whole office.
The cupcakes themselves are somewhere between Pillsbury box mix & Magnolias…But trust me, that's a good thing. The cake itself is more moist and less dense and the frosting, though it varies for each flavor, is less butter creamy and more fluffy. In other words, if you closed your eyes and bit into one you might think they came out of some really devoted mother’s kitchen.
Be prepared to be overwhelmed at first glance because in addition to having a case full of tempting flavors they also have a “make your own” option.
The Ron Bennington: Sink your teeth into this bad-boy and go weak at the knees. If you’re like me, the dynamic duo of chocolate & peanut butter is literally what keeps you up at night. Just when you thought nothing could beat a good ole Reese’s peanut butter cup – this cupcake will prove you wrong. Decadent, rich, creamy, UGH. DYING.
Birthday Cake: People literally line up for this one. It’s fucking filled with cake batter. Literal uncooked runny batter, your childhood dream come true. Shout out to the moms who never let their kids lick the spoon in fear of salmonella – Molly’s breakin’ all the rules.
Peanut Butter Nutella: Dying for this Nutella ella ella EY EY EY.
Crème Brûlée: Living up to its bougie name… it doesn't even have frosting and it’s still daaaaamn good. Plus, there’s this rule called “if there’s fruit on it it’s healthy” so… this cupcake is basically a bran muffin if you ask me.
Cookie Dough: It’s a cupcake filled with uncooked chocolate chip cookie dough, need I say more?
Gluten Free Options:
Molly has a bit of catching up to do in the glufree area… Their chocolate flourless cake is their only gluten free option BUT it’s GOOD.
