The Cupcake Tour of New York

Product Review (submitted on January 4, 2014):
First off, I'd give this 4 1/2 if that was an option as the tour was a lot of fun.

We ordered our tour from Groupon for two families of four. I believe our group had a total of 18 people which was manageable over the Thanksgiving holiday. The biggest issue I had was the start where our confirmation gave us an address but the tour was waiting at the edge of Union Square park. The guide called us to find us which was great. We were only a block or so away, so not a big deal but if you go, pick up is Southwest Corner of the park on the park side.

The tour was likely about 1 mile and half total. We started at Union Square Park and ended up in the Village on Bleeker (don't start and stop at the same place).

1st stop - very small cupcake which was tasty. I'm guessing they do a flavor of the month you get. Everyone got the same flavor.

2nd stop - Crumbs - brought out some samples sizes. Different flavors, but first come, first serve.

3rd stop - Gelato place that was mango. Everyone got a spoonful

4th stop - Got to "make your cupcake" by picking from flavor of cake and icing. About 5 choices each (and my favorite one)

5th stop - Milk and Cookies. It was a salt caramel cook. Kids weren't a big fan. I think it would depend if you like salt or not. No choice, everyone got the same one

6th stop - Magnolia Cafe and red velvet cake. It was nice because they put those in the box to eat or take home.

All in all, the group had fun. I did find it a little weird that the cupcake tour had cookies and gelato as well. They were a nice change of pace, but kind of goes against the theme. We only went in one store as most are small and they bring the food out to you. Again, only one place did you get to pick your flavor.
