  • Lemon snack cake induces labor.
  • No seriously, try the Red Velvet Twinkie. Its out of this world.
  • The salted caramel cupcake is everything. de-lish.
  • Sexy desserts for those who like to keep it luscious! If you like cake, you will love this place, you can smell the butter when you walk in. Gets a modern courtesan thumbs up and then some. Nosh on!
  • Don't be afraid to try everything. And the people here are great as wel!
  • Small black and white cookie. Excellent! I have never liked the B&W before but love it. The guy who assisted me was really sweet (no pun here) and that's why I bought anything at all.
  • cupcakes are a bit sweet for my liking, but their snack cakes are spot on. Definitely recommend their lemon snack cake (others call them twinkies). They make customize fondant cake too. $2.95/cupcake
  • The red velvet cupcakes are to die for!
  • Nothing beats the red velvet twinkies - and trust me, I've tried everything.
  • I love the Red Velvet Twinkies & Chocolate Snowballs at LuLu Cake Boutique in NYC. Chef Anne Thornton, Dessert First
  • The red velvet twinkle should totally be on your bucket list.
  • The black/white and red/white cookies of all sizes are the best thing on the menu!! The mini-cakes are also worth a spin--lemon and red velvet in particular!
  • The homemade Twix bar was a let down.
  • Cupcakes to die for
  • get the pink snowball or red velvet cake dipped in white chocolate!
  • Try the almond flour cookies- mouthwatering! And the red and white and black and white minis are perfection in a bite. Yum!
  • You're going to want one of the swiss rolls, but it turns out Yodels made by professional bakers taste like Yodels. If you want your mind blown, try the pecan bars instead.
  • Not up to par with NYC's other specialty cupcake shops.
  • Brooklyn blackout cake
  • Chocolate-dipped snack cake rivals the Chocodile
