Cupcakes come in a wild assortment of flavors, ranging from the best-selling Banana Pudding to Pineapple Upside-Down to Southern Red Velvet. Or, if you're feeling naughty, you can opt for one of the boozier varieties, such as Bailey's Irish Creamette, Pina Colada or Pink Moscato.

Owner Miesha Stokely is a true renaissance woman: a registered nurse at Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville by day, and a baker by night.
