Attention Red Velvet fans: there's a new Velvet in town and it comes on a truck. The Street Sweets truck, that is. Yes, Street Sweets has brought One Girl Cookie's excellent Red Velvet Cupcakes to midtown...
Midtown has a few red velvet cupcake options, but the ones from the Street Sweets trucks are the best I've had so far, handily beating out Magnolia's too dry Red Velvets and the too expensive Red Velvet cupcakes from Dean and Deluca.
The cream cheese frosting here is sweet but it had a nice tangy finish. And the cake was moist yet toothsome with just the right amount of cocoa. Certifiably delicious. I'll definitely be getting these again.
Follow Street Sweets on twitter for updates on their daily location.
Speaking of One Girl Cookie, if you don't have access to Street Sweets in Midtown, One Girl is now offering their red velvet cupcakes as a cupcake special on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at their Brooklyn store. There full specialty cupcake schedule is below
