Dessert Club, ChikaLicious

Dessert Club, ChikaLicious
204 East 10th Street
New York, NY 10003
(212) 475-0929

This was our last stop before lunch and I really liked how all these places were still quiet. Check out all those yellow boxes on top, they form such a neat display pattern. First off, Dessert Club, ChickaLicious is small - perhaps best for walking in. There is a small bar-like seating area on the left and booth-like seating on the right. The menus are posted on the walls and I can imagine this place getting full with people forming a line right out the door!

Let's have a better look at the case over on the left counter there.

The cupcakes are neatly lined up and labeled (except for S'mores and Toasted Almond - tell you why later). The Dessert Club has two types of cupcakes, regular and premium, mostly distinguished by flavour and their price. Your basic Vanilla, Lemon, White & Black are regular while flavours like Mocha, Carrot, Strawberry are considered premium.

They also have an assortment of macarons (Lemon, Salted Caramel, Strawberry, Chocolate, Rose, and Blueberry)

Look! More shiny cupcakes! I liked how the cupcakes all looked uniformed, they all have relatively the same height and dollop of frosting.

Look at those peaks!

Howard got to pick this time and he went for the S'mores Cupcake. But technically, he wanted the Toasted Almond Cupcake! He ordered the wrong one because of the switched labels! All I could do was shake my head because he wasn't thinking clearly. Even without the labels you could still tell which was which! ;)

Not bad, the cupcake did taste like a giant S'mores. I think the cupcake had graham crackers and there was a chocolate filling, topped with marshmallow. I really like how they even torched the top of the marshmallows too. And look! The cupcake liner got a little burned too.

This is one place we'll have to try again because we didn't really get to try their frosting. ;)


  1. I just read all your NYC posts. *Jealous*
    I want to do a year long food tour of the city :)

  2. Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes], a year long food tour sounds good! There are so many places to try in the city. You probably could eat at a different place everyday!

  3. Your aerial shots of the cupcakes look fantastic! I hope you've been back since then, because you did NOT eat what I believe is their best cupcake: banana. Tenka has a coupon with Chikalicious for buy $10 for $20 (http://www.tenka.com/web/creative/-1/10185.htm) if you're interested :)

  4. Hi Jessica,

    Thank you and in our next visit, we'll make sure to try the banana cupcake! =)
