Georgetown Cupcake in Soho, New York City

I finally got myself back to Soho after quite a long time. It has for sure become much more crowded, as well as commercialized which I didn't like. As I was walking around, I wanted to find Georgetown Cupcake. I watched their show for a little while, but the owners kind of got on my nerves so I stopped. I have wanted to try their cuppies however, so here we are on Mercer Street with those cobblestones! 
Very cool sign, very clean looking 
They looked really good, I like the doll-up of icing on top of each one 
Their cupcake menu varies each day, which most places seem to do these days. 
They look like the old fashioned cupcake your Mom would make for you 

Okay, this was M A J O R ! A rhinestone covered KitchenAid mixer. The girl told me they had one in every store. How cool is that? It was really gorgeous, everyone needs some sparkle in their kitchen!!  
The decor is very sweet, lots of pink, and very happy looking. 
My choices were the gluten free peanut butter fudge on the right, and the salted caramel to the left
The gluten free was something I just wanted to try to see what the taste would be, the cake was a bit dry but the icing was quite yummy. The salted caramel was really very good. The cake was moist and the icing was very flavorful. They should sell icing shots, I would buy one for sure! They were selling them on QVC, and the reviews were mixed, so I was curious to try them in person. I think fresh is the best way to go. I would stop in again for one if I was in the area. 
Fun cupcake design on the wall

I really love Grand Central Terminal. The area is great too as not very crowded with tourists, lots of folks who work in the city are buzzing around. These sweet cookies are from Eli Zabar, a New York City vintage gem, so much fun! What great gifts to take back home to family and friends! Just remember, the week is almost over, tomorrow is Friday! Hope your day is fabulous !!

The Hotel Edison

The Hotel Edison is a very historic hotel located in the theater district. Opened in 1931, the lights were turned on by "the" Thomas Edison, hence the name. It could hold 1,000 guests on 26 floors. It is Art Deco at it's finest, and I just love Art Deco everything! I was happy to pop in here prior to seeing It's Only a Play
When I walked in, I found these amazing murals. I just loved them!! They really speak Art Deco and if they sold them as prints, I would buy in a heartbeat!! 

Can you find the Simpsons in this one? 

Cool lobby, right? 

Being a Yankee fan, this one was just pure joy! 

I had to try to show you what was around the mural as it was so fabulous !! 
I want one of these phones!! 
Cafe Edison made an appearance in a Sex and the City episode in Season 5 as Carrie dined there. Prices seems pretty affordable for New York City, I will have to try to pop in again for a bite to eat. 

I hope you enjoyed this little trip to Hotel Edison. A classic hotel which just screams New York.
