Billy Bakery’s cupcakes are famous in New York City (and beyond)! When I want to send one of my New York friends a cupcake delivery, I call Billy’s Bakery! They bake cookies, cakes, pies, and cupcakes from scratch every day in their NYC locations. It is their vanilla buttercream that is so popular, however, as it is perfectly sweet with the perfect rich and cream texture.
