Street Snaps: Japan Expo USA 2013

Went out to the West Coast last weekend and stopped by first Japan Expo USA.  Although I only had my phone, I did manage to capture a few pictures.

Note: As always, please credit me if you decide to use these photos elsewhere. And if you see your photo and would like it taken down, please let me know!

Cupcake of the Week: Cake Tin

Found this spot in Delta Terminal 4 at JFK on our way to San Francisco this past weekend. Cake Tin had large cupcakes with flavors like Funfetti, PB & J, and Black & White.  While they are on the pricey side ($5), according to Yelp they are definitely something to checkout during a layover.

Cupcake of the Week: Brooklyn Cupcake

Visited a friends new apartment in LIC.  We both past Brooklyn Cupcake (irony?) and were highly recommended to try by a customer.

With flavors like French Toast (with or without maple syrup), Coquito, Rainbow Cookie, and Tres Leche who can go wrong.  These cakes can last a few days fridge and still taste good. 
Check out their website or follow on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

Treat House - Treat. Yo. Self

An unknown rice krispie treat shop had been gracing my Facebook feed. Between this and a new crepe shop in SoHo, it was hard to decide which to check out first.  Crepes tend to be more fun with people, so I went to check Treat House on it's grand opening.
I also treated myself to the American Natural History Museum to check out their whale exhibit which was a few blocks away. 
(For the record, I went to the museum first.)

Cupcake of the Week: Taking Notes

Lyntha Tye from Something Deeper: Anime, Manga, and Comics remembered I like things shaped like cupcakes. These cupcake shaped notepads can be found at your local Barnes & Noble.

Now if they only made scratch-and-sniff versions...
