Is Sheepshead Bay ready for its own gourmet cupcake vendor? Well, at least two locals and hundreds of Facebook fans think so.

Signs went up for Cupcake Kings at 1613 Voorhies Avenue (off Sheepshead Bay Road) weeks ago, but little information was available other than “Coming Soon!” Then the owners wrote to us about their plans.

My name is Dennis and my partner’s name is Larry. We’re two local Sheepshead Bay guys and are trying to launch our first retail cupcake shop. We thought it would be a great idea to bring this project to the neighborhood we both grew up in. Along with many great flavors of cupcakes we will also be carrying cookies, brownies,muffins and other tasty baked goods. We will also be carrying custom cakes for all occasions,  we will be serving gourmet coffee, cappuccino and espresso and teas.

Apparently, Larry and Dennis have been in the food business a few years, and have most recently been distributing cupcakes, cakes, breads and more to a host of New York City cafes and food establishments. As he noted, this will be their first retail venture (and will offer free delivery) – but, with no on-site kitchen, the goods will continue to be baked in their East New York bakery.

The location is still under construction, but their 300+ Facebook fans are already drooling and making demands for flavors like peanut butter and jelly and red velvet cupcakes. The owners are aiming to be open within a month’s time.

The prospect of adding diversity to the businesses around Sheepshead Bay Road is awesome, but a couple of hundred Facebook fans isn’t enough to support a brick and mortar store. So, once again, it begs the question, is Sheepshead Bay ready for a gourmet cupcake shop?

        The’re want ad indicates that you need to speak Russian in order to be hired.
        Is that discriminatory??

          No. There are tons of jobs out there that require someone to be bi-lingual. They are looking for a skill, not discriminating based on age, sex, race…

          I would think so – this is America, why should an American business hire workers who must speak Russian? The Russians should speak English – we all know that they have to in order to become US citizens. They teach English in all the schools in Russia – they call it “British”. A Russian woman told me that.

    A gourmet cupcakery will definitely be welcomed by me! They could even sell some in the sex shop, get some of those into frosting and cream play sessions…

    Funny quote:

    [Jules, Vincent and Jimmie are drinking coffee in Jimmie's kitchen]
    Jules: Mmmm! Goddamn, Jimmie! This is some serious gourmet shit! Usually, me and Vince would be happy with some freeze-dried Taster’s Choice right, but he springs this serious GOURMET shit on us! What flavor is this?
    Jimmie: Knock it off, Julie.
    Jules: [pause] What?
    Jimmie: I don’t need you to tell me how fucking good my coffee is, okay? I’m the one who buys it. I know how good it is. When Bonnie goes shopping she buys SHIT. I buy the gourmet expensive stuff because when I drink it I want to taste it. But you know what’s on my mind right now? It AIN’T the coffee in my kitchen, it’s the dead nigger in my garage.

      As memorable as that quote might be sir, it makes you sound rather racist… Would you kindly Edit your post.

      on a side note, their cup cakes are Awesome! the lady who owns the place was working out of her house and like she ordered some signs from us came to pick them up brought some cup cakes, those cup cakes are made from the heart! Delicious!!!

      • Gene2

        Racist? and it’s coming from Death? Death does not care if you black or white!

        It’s a movie quote.. so if it’s racist go complain to Quentin Tarantino

          “Death,” by his own admission, likes to troll. I haven’t banned him because he doesn’t say anything too ridiculous, and actually says something meaningful (if not agreeable) frequently enough – but I’d ignore this comment and most of his others.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CIXKMWVRUVBKQ4CT75NB5BAEBU Death

            I was trying to keep it clean, There a lot of Quotes from movies + people that don’t really belong on News Blogs…

            And i changed the name Several times, i don’t know why it keeps showing me as Death if anything it should say Deathlock

          Magnolia Bakery

          • Eitan

            Brooklynq is correct, it was Magnolia, the cupcake bakery with the line wrapped around the block. I was gonna ask ‘how did you know’, but then I realised, he’s obviously not the only one.

  • bigmike

    what a dead space to rent for a business like that

    • Anonymous

      yep. and there is barely any foot traffic. but, if the cupcakes are really good, people will go out of their way to get them.

    Ok this needs to be said..generally i thought that this site was ok at best but now i see it for the confused piece of shit that it is. If it hadn’t been for “trollers” like “death” then your toilet paper of a site wouldn’t have made it past your mom’s house and into the real world. How about before picking on the people that make you who you are, you think about wtf your site is really about….The NEW YORK POST is a newspaper…The Sheepshead Bites is what i use to wipe my ass with when i run out of toilet paper :-D So thanks for your informative piece of asswipe! And Ned…you probably profiled Foxy’s in one of your shitty ass blog sessions (fucking geek) so go there and lose your virginity…then maybe you will stop acting like you have a bat shoved up your ass….

    • http://www.nedberke.com Ned Berke

      You wipe your ass with a computer? Seems tricky. Anyway, keep to one name Death.

        He is almost right. Your not a full blown geek. you are somewhere between a hippie and a geek with a twist of nerd.

          Sounds like an “I can’t get laid” cocktail. Fantastic.

            Dont worry about that Death will hook you up.

    Sounds like you guys are trying to copy The King of Cupcakes in Park Slope.

  • Joe Angello

    They should just there name from THE CUPCAKE KINGS TO THE COPYKINGS!!!

  • Barkingspider7

    they’re OK – $1.75 for a very small muffin – smaller than your average muffin tin.

    I must say though, 1 of the owners and a counter girl were in the store on the morning I visited – both very nice.

    Good coffee – strong and very coffee – y!
