I recently went back to New Paltz. I discovered…Cupcakes! I’m really excited to have found a little cupcake shop called Moxie Cupcake . This place was awesome!
Moxie Cupcake bakes their gourmet cupcakes from scratch daily. They don’t use preservatives and buy their ingredients local. They have vegan, gluten free, and organic options. You don’t have to feel guilty about indulging your sweet tooth, which I like to indulge often. They have different flavors each time you visit. Some of their standard flavors are Vanilla Sky, Annie, The Moxie, and Smooth Criminal.
The Moxie is a chocolate cupcake with a chocolate ganache filling and vanilla butter-cream frosting. The Smooth Criminal is a peanut butter cupcake with chocolate chips and peanut butter butter-cream frosting. You can’t go wrong with any choice you make. On my trip there with my friends we got the Cloud Nine, Red Velvet, and Sunday Morning cupcakes.
I personally ate the Cloud Nine Cupcake. It’s a vanilla cupcake with coconut meringue. It was really light and coconutty. I loved every bite of it. This is particularly rare for me because I don’t like coconut. But I do now :). Two things that I found really awesome about this place, aside from the cupcakes, were that they make doggy cupcakes for Fido and they have re-chargable/non-expirable gift cards. It’s the gift that keeps giving!
The next time you’re looking for a sweet tooth fix think Moxie Cupcake. A bonus is that it’s a mini cafe, so you can eat cupcakes and catch up with friends! That’s what I call a sweet deal.
