Moxie Cupcakes

I am currently in my last two weeks of school at The Culinary Institute of America and I'm trying to check off places that I'd like to go in the area and haven't yet. Yesterday I spent the day in New Paltz, New York. I started at Taco Shack for lunch, which was not as impressive as I would have liked but then headed to Cafeteria Cafe to enjoy a hot chai latte and to do a little job searching. I was very happy to sit on one of the gold embroidered couches and sip my chai. Cafeteria Cafe was a really cool cafe. I can't believe that this was my first time there! My final destination was Moxie Cupcake. I ordered the one of the right, a peanut butter cake with chocolate chips and a peanut butter buttercream. And my adventure partner for the day ordered a chocolate cupcake filled with caramel and topped with salted caramel buttercream. Both cupcakes were heavenly and so was the atmosphere. We arrived, ordered our cupcakes and cuddled up in the cozy dining room and almost forgot to offer each other a bite before we finished our cupcakes. The best part of both of the cupcakes was their moist texture. It makes me want to start tweaking my cupcake recipe. Good job Moxie! I will see you soon!
