Cupcakes from most bakeries come with American frosting—that's a sweeter version of the silky egg-white-and-melted-sugar French buttercream frosting you can get at Butter Lane, the East Village cupcake den that's ruffling the wrappers of Magnolia and ChikaLicious (Time Out New York nominated Butter Lane for 2009's Best New Bakery). Today's Groupon gets you six Butter Lane cupcakes (a $16 value) for $8. Use your Groupon Monday through Wednesday and receive a bonus cupcake.
The cupcake connoisseurs at Butter Lane offer frostings—espresso, maple pecan, raspberry, blueberry, and more—in traditional American style while also offering chocolate or vanilla French-style frostings. Choose any flavor. Stock up on cupcake staples, such as dark chocolate and vanilla, or try unique icing flavors like sea-salted chocolate or cinnamon honey. Beyond innovative icings and fine flavors, these cupcakes have integral character —they're made from high-quality ingredients, including real vanilla beans, pure cocoa, and fresh fruit.
The New York Times says Butter Lane has "a bowl of new ideas," and food critics on Serious Eats and Cupcakes Take the Cake savor the flavors of the tiny, sweet-smelling shop. Pink floral wallpaper and a chalkboard menu make Butter Lane a cozy spot to sugar up. Let the friendly staff help you navigate the saccharine seas of incredible cupcake choices.
