Located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Baked was founded by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, who call themselves dessert archaeologists because they dig, research and eat their way through the regional desserts of America. Their own desserts are as impressive as any found around the country, with a distinctive poof of frosting resting on top of each cake base. Instead of a typical swirled frosting, Baked's cupcakes have smooth, rounded tops a unique decoration that is all their own. When you check them out, make sure to ask for the Caramel Apple cupcakes. — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012
