After the ‘demise ‘ of our local Italian bakeshop – Angelo’s, my husband and I had to continuously look for a replacement bakery that can satisfy our sweet tooth. We’ve tried many local bakeries around our neighborhood, but they’ve been no more than one or two tries. There is a local cupcake shop, but they only offer cupcakes and we love their cupcakes.
Citarella, the ultimate gourmet market in Manhattan is now my ultimate bakeshop too. Through the years, from gourmet foods, hot and cold prepared foods, caviar and cheese, we have been more than satisfied and we really love their offerings. For almost one year now, we have officially adapted our sweet tooth to their awesome baked goods.
Here’s their Lemon Velvet cupcake.
Now, I’m praying for them to expand into our local neighborhood so I will no longer just depend on my husband to bring the goodies home. Since a trek to the city is not feasible for me to do everyday, having them right around here will be much better for me.
