Day 1

Today we will enjoy a day full of cupcake touring to some of the famous New York City bakeries. You will also have free time for lunch on your own in NYC. Previous tours included Sprinkles Cupcakes, Baked by Melissa, Huascar & Co. Bakeshop, Billy's Bakery and Magnolia's Bakery.

Sprinkles Cupcakes are handcrafted from the finest ingredients, including sweet cream butter, bittersweet Belgian chocolate, pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, fresh bananas and carrots, real strawberries and natural citrus zests. Topped with Sprinkles trademark modern dots, rich chocolate sprinkles from France or seasonal sugar decorations, Sprinkles cupcakes are a deliciously sophisticated update to an American classic.

Baked by Melissa is known for their bite-size mini cupcakes, handcrafted with only the most delicious ingredients. They've got the perfect gift idea for your upcoming special occasion! Each mini cupcake is slightly larger than a quarter in diameter, so 1 serving size is usually 4-5 delicious cupcakes... that means you can try so many flavors! Their famous flavors include tie dye, cookie dough, red velvet, cookies and cream, classic vanilla and triple chocolate fudge... yummy!

Chef Huascar was born in the Dominican Republic, where he learned to cook at home at his mother's side, and in hotels all over the island. He came to New York as a young man to study pastry arts at the French Culinary Institute (now the International Culinary Center). In 2012 he competed on Food Network's Sweet Genius, and in 2013, won Food Network's Cupcake Wars, a first for a New York baker! In changing the name of the shop, Chef Huascar wanted to honor the dedicated team that makes his small bakery so successful.

Billy's Bakery began in 2003 with two friends from business school who shared a sweet tooth and a dream of baking. Eighteen years later, they bake all of their products on-site, filling the 1940s-style store with the delicious smells of fresh cakes and pies to bring back that delightful, warm feeling of Grandma's kitchen.

In 1996, Magnolia Bakery opened its first location on a quiet street corner in the heart of New York City's West Village. From its inception, Magnolia Bakery has been cherished for its classic American baked goods, vintage decor and warm, inviting atmosphere.
