tastes like the tropics and looks like snow—a perfect midwinter treat.
It’s a staple main-dish ingredient in southeast Asian cooking, but in
the U.S., it’s used most gloriously in baking.
“Coconut is why I
opened this shop,” says Leslie Fiet, owner and chef baker of Mini’s
Cupcakes and the new Retro Cafe. “It’s my favorite flavor. I love Dean
& DeLuca’s coconut cupcakes—they are worth the price tag of $6.
Basically, I went into the food business because I had to have a place
to get good coconut cupcakes.”
At Mini’s, coconut shows up in
lots of cupcakes—the Blue Hawaii, a tribute to Elvis, mixes coconut and
pineapple and replaces buttermilk with pineapple juice in the cake. The
Snowball is a Madagascar vanilla bean cake topped with Swiss meringue
and a shower of shaved coconut.
Fiet enjoys one—or two—with her tea every day at four o’clock, when she closes shop.

Back by popular demand, the Carrie Cosmo! We will no longer have the carrot cake on Fridays, we will have our most popular cocktail cupcake. The Carrie Cosmo is a cranberry cupcake soaked in cranberry juice and vodka, frosted with lime frosting topped with a fresh cranberry.

A disappearing breed, bakeries that bake from scratch. We are one of a very select few who have made the choice to bake from scratch, the way our grandmothers did. Our cupcakery is committed to doing it right, we do not use preservatives, additives, or chemicals in our baking. Our ingredient list is totally recognizable and you can pronounce each item; flour, vanilla, eggs, applesauce, sugar, cream, butter, cream cheese, chocolate, coco powder, baking powder and sour cream.
It takes a lot more time to bake from scratch, but we feel you deserve the very best. As owner and creator of these cupcakes, I am committed to providing you with the best cupcakes, made in the best way.
Thank you for supporting Mini's and we look forward to seeing you again. Leslie
