Park Slope blogger Here’s Park Slope brought this new purveyor of sweet delights to our attention on Oct 26th, reporting that King of Cupcakes on 7th Ave between 4th and 5th streets would be officially open for business the following day, the 17th.
Now somehow HPS managed to get in early for a pre-opening cupcake tasting and said “these are some seriously good cupcakes.” (See HPS’s article here for photos of said cupcake.)
The owner, Shawn, is a former gelato distributor reports HPS, and decided to open King of Cupcakes after getting laid off.
The word back in September was that the KoC would “offer cookies, cakes, sandwiches” in addition to the King’s namesake cake of the cups and gelato (undoubtedly something Shawn knows a thing or two about, having been in the business).
So far we can find no other reviews of KoC on line and so are feeling the heavy weight of obligation is falling upon our own shoulders.
Well somebody is going to have to try all of the cakes and gelatos!
