I stopped by the Manhattan outpost of the Brooklyn Flea this weekend to do a little holiday shopping, but the highlight for me had to be the bacon cupcakes from Kumquat Cupcakery. Besides being so tiny and adorable, these were impeccably moist with just the right amount of sweetness.
We tried the red velvet cupcakes too (another winner), and I think next time I might just pick up one of these assortment boxes (cool logo). Don’t forget to chat it up with Keavy Landreth, the owner of Kumquat — she’s working the booth herself. And oh yeah, she’s got a blog here.
I’ve written about the Brooklyn Flea before, so you might know I don’t mind making the trip out there. But I’m still excited about the Manhattan version (aka, “Gifted”) in the old Tower Records annex space on West 4th and Lafeyette. You can check it out on weekends through Christmas this year!
