Brooklyn is one of the busiest parts of New York City. When you hear busy, you think of traffic.
People love setting up businesses where there is a traffic of people to get customers quickly.
Now, if you are going to visit Brooklyn for the first time and looking for the best cupcake stores in the area, this is your lucky day.
Even if you are not new to the area, you can still sample a couple of Brooklyn’s most delicate cupcakes from different stores.
Straight off, let me give you my top twenty stores.
Best Cupcakes In Brooklyn
1. Brooklyn Cupcake
If you like cupcakes and have been to Brooklyn, you will most likely have visited one of the most popular cupcake shops known as the Brooklyn cupcakes.
Cupcakes that taste that good should be illegal because you just can not get enough of the sweetness.
My favorite is the Tres leches cupcake. It is fresh, moist, and full of flavor. Just thinking of the whipped cream on that delicious cupcake will make you want to drool.
Unlike the regular cupcakes that you will find in most shops, the Brooklyn cupcakes are not too sweet. Instead, they have just the right amount of sweetness to keep you hooked.
They have a wide variety of cupcakes, and I am sure that one if not all of them will fit your liking. I recommend you try the Rainbow cookie cupcake, the red velvet cupcake, and the french toast.
If you reside far away from Brooklyn and do not have the time to visit Brooklyn Cupcakes in their physical stores, you can request a shipment.
Brooklyn Cupcakes have partnered with a gold belly to ensure that all their customers get a supply of their sweet cupcakes wherever they are.

2. Little Cupcake Bakeshop
My sister had been raving about the cupcakes from the little cupcake bakeshop, so I decided to visit them one afternoon.
Since I love the strawberry flavor, I decided to order the Good Humour strawberry cupcake. It was delicious, not too sweet that you cannot enjoy it. It also had a good texture as well as a candy consistency.
I noticed that the frosting did not smother the cupcakes, which is something most people like. Moreover, they had a perfect size that was neither huge nor small.
Although it is called a little cupcake bakeshop, interestingly, there are more cakes than cupcakes on the menu. However, they do have excellent flavors of cupcakes.
If you like gluten-free desserts, Little Cupcake Bakeshop has a good selection of gluten-free cupcakes that you can try out.
Aside from the Good Humour strawberry cupcake, I recommend you get the rainbow cupcake because it is super delicious.
Location;598 Vanderbilt Ave Brooklyn, NY 11238
3. The Bakery On Bergen
I like cupcakes from Bakery on Bergen because they have been baked using local fresh ingredients that are organic.
My vegan friend recommended this place because they have vegetarian options, which is a plus for me. They also have gluten-free cupcakes.
This is one of the first stores where I tried a vegan option for dessert, and I must say that it was delicious.
I used to have this misconception that vegan dessert or somewhat vegan food was not delicious. However, after having the chocolate vegan cupcake at the Bakery On Bergen, I changed my mind.
They also have a nice variety of cake options.
Location;740 Bergen St Brooklyn, NY 11238

4. Lady Bird Bakery
When you visit the Ladybird Bakery establishment, you will find a line of people waiting to be served. The number of customers in line is enough to tell you the kind of cupcakes you will find in this store.
The first time I went to this place, I stood in line for about 20 minutes before placing my order. So do not be discouraged because the wait was worth it.
The Ladybird bakery has cupcakes regularly sized at $2.25 and mini-cupcakes that go for $1.75 each. To me, that is a reasonable amount to part with for this taste of goodness.
There are so many finger-licking desserts that it is going to be hard to make a choice.
I believe that their signature cupcake is the Brooklyn blackout cupcake. It is made using dark chocolate cake with chocolate pudding filling fudge frosting and topped up with cake crumbs.
The regular-size marble cupcake, which contains chocolate and vanilla flavors, is also another fan favorite that you should try out.
Aside from cupcakes, they also have cakes, pies, and tarts.
Location;1112 8th Ave Brooklyn, NY 11215

5. Clementine Bakery
If you are vegan, then you will love the clementine bakery. All their food is organic and vegan. They also have the option of being gluten-free.
The first cupcakes I tried were the green velvet cupcakes. They were very delicious, and I would try them out again.
My favorite, however, was the poppy lemon seed cupcake because I liked the lemon flavor and the taste of the poppy seeds.
Another exciting thing is that for only 45 dollars, you get to build your range of cupcakes which will be a dozen.
Therefore, if you have a vegan friend and loves cupcakes, take them to this place. You can also get the cupcakes delivered to their home or office because they have delivery options.
Aside from the cupcakes, I would also recommend that you try out the vegan blueberry cheesecake.
However, the texture wasn’t all that great because it was a little challenging. The flavor, however, was on point, and it can make you overlook the texture.

6. Brooklyn Sweet Spot
Brooklyn Sweet Spot is a gem that is hidden and not on the busy side of Brooklyn. The name speaks for itself because the desserts in this place are fantastic.
Let me start with the texture. The cupcakes are spongy, and every bite is satisfying. They are moist and contain just the right amount of flavor and sweetness. The red velvet flavor is my favorite cupcake from this store.
I also sampled their banana pudding, which was very delicious and can be likened to the magnolia, if not better.
What I liked most about this store, aside from their amazing cupcakes, is that they accept apple pay as well as credit cards.
So if you like not carrying cash, this is the store to visit.

7. Keily Cakes
Keily Cakes is a business that operates out of a home bakery in Brooklyn. The business aims to provide the ultimate cakes or desserts for your events.
Since the business is run by a self-taught chef and has not grown to be very big, there are many well-thought-out things that you might not necessarily experience in larger stores.
Their cupcakes are made from high-quality ingredients: natural cream, real vanilla beans, and pure cocoa. When using store-bought ingredients, the taste will be slightly different from natural ingredients.
They have a range of cupcakes that will cater to your sweet obsession. They are moist and can stay that way for even two days.
They also have an exceptional menu that caters to vegans and those who would like a gluten-free dessert option.
They accept custom orders given a reasonable amount of time. However, there are times when I have given them an order on short notice, and they are still delivered on time and in excellent condition.
The only thing I did not like is that you can only select one flavor per dozen. There is no option for assorted cupcakes.
Currently, the only option is to do a curbside pickup or get the cupcakes delivered to your doorstep.
Location; Brooklyn, NY 11215

I found Bakenvy back in 2020 through Instagram. I was searching for a business that could deliver cakes for me at home. The business is run by a lady called Tiffany, who bakes everything from scratch.
I liked the range of cakes, and I also decided to try out the cupcakes. The bling cupcakes were the best that I have ever tasted.
First of all, they looked so beautiful you would want to use them to decorate your house instead of eating them.
The cupcakes were spongy and delicious. They were also very colorful, which would be great for an event.
I left some of them for the next day, and to my surprise, they were still moist and delicious.
Although Bakenvy mainly deals in cakes, especially ones for events, they also have a special menu for those at home.
The specialty menu of Bekenvy includes vegan and diabetic options.
I was curious about the diabetic option cupcakes. I was wondering how they would taste since I am sure that they do not have sugar.
So, that is the next cupcake that I will be sampling from them.

9. Sweetly Brooklyn
Sweetly Brooklyn is a fantastic place where you can get cupcakes with sweet homemade flavors and a beautiful design.
My neighbor used them to make cupcakes for a gender reveal party. The cupcakes were moist, soft, and very delicious.
I have also enjoyed sampling their cappuccino cupcake, and I could not get enough of it.
Location; 447 6th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215
10. Sweets For The Sweeties
Sweets for the sweeties is the place to go for sweet cupcakes and excellent customer service. Some of my family members frequent this place.
Some more than it is allowed, but you cannot blame them because this place has super delicious dessert options.
The apple pie cupcake is my favorite from their range of cupcakes. The hot chocolate cupcake and the chocolate-dipped strawberry cupcakes are also some of the cupcakes I would recommend that you try out.
Location210 Hart St, Brooklyn, NY 11206
11. Sugar Monster
Sugar Monster is the business you contact when you organize an event and you want someone to bring your idea to life.
At Sugar Monster, Ashley who is the business owner will go above and beyond your expectations.
Those numerous positive google reviews are not for nothing.
Have you ever seen a display of food that is so great you want to eat it, but it is also presented so well that you do not want to?
That is the feeling that you get when you are served with a sugar monster cupcake.
The cupcakes are not all looks and have no substance. Instead, the cupcakes are fluffy and moist. The frosting on the cupcakes is also very delicious.
They also have very creative designs that will make your event unique and one that will be the talk of the town.
Aside from the cupcakes, sugar monster offers delicious cakes.

12. Jan’s Cupcakes
One can best describe Jan’s cupcakes as sweet and satisfying. Jan is a professional who provides quality and reliable services.
As you know, expensive does not always mean better, and cheap does not always mean poor quality. Jans cupcakes are the best in terms of their quality, and they are also very affordable.
The ratio of the frosting or buttercream to the cake is always on point. There is a perfect balance of sweetness.
Jan has mastered the art so much that even the enormous fancy cakes still maintain their great taste.
I was very eager to taste the liquor-infused pull-a-part cupcakes after I saw the name on her website.
True to the reviews, the cupcakes did not disappoint. They were sweet and had a great texture.
She is also very famous for her banana pudding. The pudding is so tasty that you will be hooked once you have sampled it.

13. Ella Bakehouse
I was introduced to Ella Crown bakehouse by one of my neighbors. She knew that I love cupcakes, and she insisted that we visit the place. She told me that I would be eternally grateful to her.
The cupcakes were delicious. However, I did not find them to have a wide variety of flavors for cupcakes.
As you might have seen by now, I am not one to shy away from sweet foods. That is why I went on and tried the chocolate chip cookies.
The cookies had a rich chocolate flavor. I liked the texture, slightly crispy and great to chew.
Aside from the cupcakes and cookies, I also liked the beverages that accompanied them. The cappuccino tasted great, and I will recommend it to anyone who takes coffee.
To get the tasty cupcakes, you can make your order on their site or call their business line, and someone will take your order.

14. Mia’s Brooklyn Bakery
Mia’s bakery was born one evening when two families were sharing dinner. They later discussed how hard it was to find great desserts as they had baklava.
The families noticed the joy that Mia derived from eating her chocolate soufflé. They then decided to open a bakery and name it Mia’s bakery.
Mias Brooklyn Bakery has a variety of cupcake flavors that will tickle your tastebuds. All the cupcakes are spongy and flavorful.
This store has so many delicious cupcakes that I do not know which one is my favorite. But, I like all of them.
I will state my top five picks. I like the creme brulee cupcake, the lemon coconut cupcake, the tres leches cupcake, the salted caramel cupcake, and the strawberry banana cupcake.

15. J & J Delicious Cakes
If you want delicious freshly baked cupcakes, J&J is the place to go.
They have such a good reputation for having excellent customer service and quality products.
J&J has a wide variety of flavors.
The pistachio cupcake is the fan-favorite. It is spongy, moist, and very delicious.

16. Happy Zoe Vegan Bakery
Like the name suggests, Happy Zoe Vegan bakery offers food geared towards the vegan community. However, just because you are vegan does not mean that you cannot try out these delicious treats.
Everything that is served in the store is vegan, and this includes vegan cheesecakes, vegan cakes, vegan cookies, gluten-free doughnuts, vegan buns, and cupcakes.
Location; 102 B Nassau Ave Brooklyn, NY 11222
17. Brooklyn Baby Cakes
When you want to be served quickly, Brooklyn Baby Cakes is the place to go. Brooklyn Baby Cakes is a business born out of curiosity in baking. However, the owner of the business started with little to no baking experience.
The very first cake that she made was the red velvet cake in 2007. So you can say that over the years, that recipe has been perfected because the red velvet cupcake is my favorite from her range of flavored cupcakes.
Most people who have visited the place agree with me that the red velvet cakes are the best. From their website, they say that red velvet cakes are the top seller.
The cupcakes are made from scratch, preserve free & trans-fat free. This allows them to use local fresh products which are in season in their recipes.
They use pure ingredients such as 100% Madagascar bourbon vanilla, seasonal fruits, dark rich cocoa, exotic spices, and fresh dairy products and eggs.
At Brooklyn Baby Cakes, they have unique flavors of cupcakes that you want to try out.
Location; 506 Nostrand Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11216
18. Betty Bakery
Betty bakery is a neighborhood bakeshop that is situated in the heart of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.
The business has a touch of modern and retro. For example, it uses the term Betty as paying homage to mid-century baked goods that used to come out of grandma’s kitchen but with a modern touch.
They have excellent customer service who will help you figure out precisely what you want. In addition, they have a range of desserts, including different flavors of cupcakes, cakes, and cookies.
The cupcakes are sweet and full of flavor. They, however, do not have a wide range of flavors. I would recommend you try ou the vegan chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles.
It is exciting to note that they have vegan options and gluten-free options.
All the cupcakes are fresh and reasonably priced.
My nephews love the unicorn cupcakes from this place. I also noticed that is the flavor most kids ask for from the shop. So I would also recommend that for kids because they will love it.

19. Martha’s Country Bakery
Marthas country bakery is a place where you get your baked food in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
All their desserts are baked on-site, so you can just imagine the smell of delicious food that will hit you when you visit their store. Everything is baked from scratch while using very fresh ingredients that are locally sourced.
They have a range of delicious cupcake flavors. My top five picks are the oreo, the hazelnut, the red velvet, the vanilla, and the cappuccino cupcakes.
Please visit them and have the pleasure of getting confused about which delicious flavor of cupcakes to take home.
Location; 263 Bedford Ave.Brooklyn, NY 11211
20. Buttermilk Bakeshop
Buttermilk Bakeshop is a dessert store that sells super moist and spongy Cupcakes. The cupcakes are very delicious and easily addictive.
My favorite cupcake from the buttermilk bakeshop is the GF chocolate with espresso frosting. The taste and texture of this cupcake are just out of this world.
They do have a selection of other great flavors. If you have an appetite for sweet foods, I am confident that you will frequently visit this place.
Location; 260 5th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.

Getting the perfect cupcake can be a hustle, but some businesses have hacked it in Brooklyn.
The high competition pushes entrepreneurs to up their game; otherwise, they will lose their customers to the competition.
It does not matter if you like them very sweet or if you like gluten-free or vegan; in Brooklyn, you will find a cupcake that fits your taste.
