Ladybird Bakery in Brooklyn is one of my favorite bakeries in the city, hands down. They have an amazing selection of cupcakes, cookies, cakes, pies and slices and each one I've tried (and I've tried a lot) is amazing. Their Strawberry Blossom cupcake ($4) is no exception. Strawberry cake, filled with a chunky, real strawberry filling, and topped with strawberry cream cheese icing. Since I don't live near the bakery (by any means!) I like to call in advance to make sure they have them out on that day. If you go to Ladybird Bakery, make sure to also get one of their Brooklyn Blackout cupcakes: chocolate cake filled with chocolate pudding. The great thing about these cupcakes is they are not overly sweet, which can be hard to find. The real flavors speak for themselves.
