In New York, there are neighborhoods with several sweet shops and bakeries. Sometimes they proliferate so closely that it’s results in a “sweet spot”, and the West Village is one such neighborhood. As we reach the tail-end of summer I’d like to bring your attention to an ice cream and gelato sweet spot in the [...]

While I don’t have any big events planned (May ended up being super-busy again), I do want to make a special post about this May being CST’s third blogiversary!

Passover is March 29th and 30th! Pictured above is one of faves from them, the Lace Cookies Florentine. Yum! They’ve also come out with [...]
This illustration of Cookie O’Puss spiking a Shamrock Shake with Bailey’s Irish Cream came to me in a surreal vision, a St. Patrick’s Day sweets mash-up if you will. It is, of course, satirical – shout out to Carvel, Baileys, and McDonalds! Hope you enjoy it! As for St. Patrick’s Day in NYC Here [...]

This being my second Fancy Food Show, I learned from last year and started from the lower floor where there were more sweets and less chance of being distracted by all the (seemingly thousands of) different types of cheeses and olives on the third floor. Now that’s what I call a real cheese cake!
I haven’t tried the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck yet, but you know at the least it will be very Pride appropriate! He posts for Sunday he will be “Near the parade, probably in the 40′s around 5th. Will update.” So check the site for updates!

In case you were wondering why there were no new comics in May here and at The L Magazine, it’s because The L is in the middle of a big web revamp. New comics will be posted this month. Yay!
For those who observe Passover, kosher for Passover candy can bring a lot of fond memories. Raspberry jelly rings, macaroons, fruit slices, that Barton’s chocolate you were encouraged to sell to your elders every year (just like girl scout cookies!).
Luxee’s Winter Dessert Party was just as fun as the Fall party with a bevy of new desserts to try! We got to start off with a dessert of our choice from behind the counter. I picked the Tart Tatin (sorry no pic but I couldn’t wait to eat it)! It’s a generous slice of [...]
There’s always something magical about holiday time in the city with all of the lights and festive atmosphere. Lately I was wandering down Greenwich Ave. and have come to the conclusion that it is a great place to shop for gifts!
I had a blast at the preview night and fashion show which opened this year’s Chocolate Show. To my delight, the theme was superheroes and I managed to get some shots of the yummy fashions!
The grand tasting was fun, but had a lot less in the sweets arena than I was expecting, perhaps because of the Sweet event, they focused mostly on savories. But there was still a lot of good food (and beverages) to be had and I found some sweet spots. Here is the insane Target Choxie [...]
