Cupcakes at Billy’s

After our subpar meal at Co., Katie and I walked down a couple blocks to Billy’s for a sugar fix.

I asked for their yellow daisy buttercream cupcake ($2.25), and Katie got a red velvet ($2.75).

On a side note, I’ve recently noticed everything around me seems to be some form of pink (my phone, my camera, my nails, etc.). I didn’t ask for any specific frosting color — even though they have many — and the woman conveniently whips this one out for me:


Baby pink with chocolate sprinkles. Lovely.

I was probably having a bad day with food though because the cupcake was not as soft, and just not as good as the Billy’s cupcakes I’ve had before. I also ordered a latte that ended up being really watered down. Double Fail.


Katie’s red velvet with cream cheese frosting though was extra soft and extra good — which is probably why it’s also an extra $0.50.

The debate on best cupcake place in the city continues. What’s your favorite cupcake place?
