Stop! It's a Cupcake!Rushing off to work or school and needing a sugary pick-me up to chase the blues away? Dreaming of some rich chocolate frosting but don’t have the time to swing by the bakery? Well if you’re hoofing it on the streets of New York, lookout for the CupcakeStop Truck!

Parked at various accessible locations such as Union Square, freshly baked cupcakes that range from Red Velvet to Mint Chocolate Chip await to tempt your palate. The CupcakeStop Truck was the brainchild of law school graduate, Lev Ekster when he realised he wasn’t going to be working with a law firm anytime soon. Turning to his entrepreneurial talents he knew mobility with the city’s love of cupcakes would be the beginning of something new and exciting.

Hitting the streets of Manhattan from 10 a.m. till midnight the cupcakes are lovingly baked by Manal Mandy, an experienced pastry chef. And don’t worry, no unsold cupcake will go to waste as they will be donated to City Harvest, a food rescue organisation.
