There goes my diet!

I just started working on a project that is a hop, skip and a jump from Billy’s Bakery on Ninth Avenue. Needless to say, I picked up a delicious treat for myself after my walk though today. I can already tell that it’s going to take a lot of will power not to go there every time I visit the job site! The cupcakes are delicious and the cakes are as pretty as they are yummy! I can also personally vouch for the pumpkin square. Billy’s Bakery would also make a great place to pick up some sweets for your Valentine next month. Or you could just treat yourself! You’re worth it! Bon Weekend!

    Yummy! They look so good. I don’t think I would be able to go by without buying a cupcake or two.

    ALL of that looks SOOO amazingly yummy! I have such a sweet tooth and I would have to have will power if I was passing by this divine place too! But sometimes it sure is nice to get yourself a lil treat! 😉

    If I wasn’t already running on 100% sugar at the moment, I would be incredibly tempted.

    those cupcakes look delicious, especially the red velvet ones.. those are my weakness. PS- If you’re ever in Chicago, you must stop by Sweet Mandy B’s bakery in Lincoln Park! it’s absolute heaven.

    Yum! That would take some serious willpower to stay away! xo

    Oh, I spy some red velvet cupcakes in the fourth picture. That’s just not fair to those of us who don’t live in NY! 🙂

    YUM… so very jealous…
    If you’re in London, make sure to visit the Hummingbird Bakery. They also make yummy baked goods.

    YUM! Wish I had known about this place when I was in town last week. Or maybe not! 🙂

    Will see you there next time I’m in NYC!

    Oh my;
    Sound like my fascination with Crumbs!

    You just cannot have one bite!

    Oh, you desrve a little bit of a break now and again. Life is all about balance.

    good for you – i am always so afraid to go into a sweets showing alone even though i know i look fabulous and totally deserve it!

    Another reason I miss working in NYC…I miss Billy’s Bakery! Have a cupcake for me! 🙂

    You had me at ‘cupcake’!

    Those look so delicious! There is a cupcake place in New Olreans that I love and although I don’t need a cupcake, it sure would taste yummy!

    I was so happy to see this! As I sit here eating a double chocolate stuffed with dark chocolate mousse. Tomorrow I’ll eat my salted carmel cupcake.

    Looks delicious! I don’t blame you for stoppng. There’s something about the presentation of such beautiful presented desserts!

    they look lovely… are they as good as Magnolia?


  23. ebsqart January 30, 2010 | 4:47 pm

    How does Billy’s compare to Prantl’s on Walnut St here in the ‘Burgh? Anything as good as the Burnt Almond Torte?

    Hooray Heather! I am so happy that you finally made it to our bakery. I hope that you had a wonderful experience! I am so thrilled that you finally got a chance to come by. I visit your blog everyday to be inspired. What a pleasant surprise, Thank you!

    Red velvet cupcakes are something my only reason for getting out of bed, lol! Have you been to Georgetown Cupcake here in DC? If I worked near there, I would be in serious trouble. These look so yummy!

    I work across the street from a cupcake shop and it is dangerous. Red velvet cupcakes are bad news bears!

  29. pinknest February 1, 2010 | 7:41 pm

    It’s my favorite cupcake in NYC. *sigh* So dangerous. So delicious.
