Crazier Than Croquembouche
WEDDING CUPCAKES BY THE BATCH
By Pichet Ong of P*ong
(Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry cupcakes, topped with an extra-large vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting; $12 per serving).
Our Verdict: “Cupcakes make people ridiculously happy! The plush little ziggurats of frosting are light and creamy, with none of that gritty confectioners’ sugar texture you get from certain West Village bakeries. The cakes are moist, flavorful, not greasy, and easy to eat standing up. On the downside, the frosting slumps quickly. They may need to be refrigerated until just before the bride-feeds-the-groom moment.”
