not to be missed, and the staff really seem to enjoy their work

The cake is a bit dry, but the frosting is the worst part. It is way too thick and buttery, without any any of the nice vanilla flavor frosting should have (I haven't tried the chocolate yet). The shop is cute, but I would not recommend going there for the cupcakes...

Since Billy's opened I have been a follower, everything is great but esp the cupcakes! Billy's cupcake recipe is fantastic and even when I made it at home they tasted great because they really are mini cakes. And the frosting may put you into a sugar coma but its very smooth, creamy, rich. Even though Billy Reece (now Lauren) has left, these cupcakes are still little bites of heaven.

I was a die hard "other bakery" devotee. I would wax poetic about the cream cheese frosting and the carrot cake. But I always found all of their cakes a little dry.....then I went to Billy's. OH MY, instant conversion. The frosting is better and the cake is so moist and phenomenal. Both the banana and carrot cakes are to die for, plus the late hours allow me to feed the urge at any time.

LOL...I came here b/c I heard how this place was a spin off of Magnolia Bakery....well it's JUST as good w/ a WAY less wait! I got the red velvet cupcake which was PHENOMENAL and I devoured it in less than one block! This is the place that carries Katie Holmes fav cupcakes and I totally see why! I would DEF come back and would recommend for anyone to come here instead of Magnolia Bakery.....just as good cupcakes w/ not as bad of a wait!

Not a great value for what you're getting. My least favorite of the popular cupcakes places.

They have some of the best cupcakes in new york. The chocolate cake is good, too. I have tried other dessert places in the city and this one has some of the best cupcakes. The icing is not bad either.
