This week on Let's Eat In Cathy hosted Matt & Allison Robicelli, the married cupcake geniuses behind Robicelli's Cupcakes. Their mission was to take the high end buttercream frosting and cake baking techniques found in expensive wedding and "event" baking and bring them to the cupcake-eating masses. Robicelli's are widely considered to be THE BEST cupcakes in NYC and beyond, and one taste or even a glance at their incredibly varied and complex cupcake flavors will confirm this. This episode was sponsored by Whole Foods Market. New York Cityâ€™s Craft Beer Week is just around the corner, beginning Friday, September 24th and running through Sunday, October 3rd. To kickoff the annual series, Whole Foods Market Bowery is hosting a beer and food pairing event in their Beer Room.
