America's Best New Cupcakes

Slide 15 of 23

Blue Smoke Bake Shop, New York City

F&W editors’ all-time favorite cupcakes hail from this offshoot of NYC restaurateur Danny Meyer’s popular Blue Smoke barbecue restaurant. The bake shop offers one new flavor each month; recent editions have included piña colada (pineapple cake with coconut frosting) and peanut butter and jelly (peanut butter cake filled with house-made concord grape jelly and topped with peanut butter and jelly frosting and chopped salted peanuts). The insider pick, however, is an off-the-menu special order for cream-filled chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
