10 NYC Dessert Destinations To Satisfy Your Summer Sweet Tooth
Cyn Eats

I get at least one text a day asking for food recommendations in New York City. Maybe that’s because I have a list on my phone of all of my favorite places, or maybe it’s because I have my own foodstagram account. Either way, I am always happy to share. As most people know, I am obsessed with finding the newest, trendiest and most delicious dessert destinations in NYC. Here are some of my faves! Enjoy!

1. Big Gay Ice Cream

If you have never been to Big Gay you are seriously missing out. Their ice cream creations are out of this world. My go to is the Salty Pimp- vanilla soft serve injected with dulche de leche then topped with sea salt and dipped in chocolate. You can even get your cone lined with Nutella. Can you say YUM?!?

2. Sprinkles Cupcakes

A trip into NYC is incomplete without a visit to Sprinkles. One time I literally went to the city just to get a Sprinkles cupcake, and I’m not kidding. Their cupcakes have the perfect frosting to cake ratio and their ice cream is some of the best I’ve ever had. Do not leave without trying the Sprinkles Sundae- one scoop of ice cream in between a cupcake top and bottom!!

3. Magnolia’s

Magnolia’s is a classic, and if you have never been you must go ASAP. Their desserts are simple but delicious. You can never go wrong at Magnolia’s. Their famous banana pudding is fluffy, light and sweet- what’s not to love?! Their cupcakes also never disappoint. A cupcake a day keeps the doctor away, right?

4. Two Little Red Hens

My cousin raved about this place so I figured I would give it a try. And I was not disappointed. I tried the marble cupcake and the banana cupcake with peanut butter frosting. The cupcakes were moist, and the frosting had the perfect texture and was not too sweet. I will be back!

5. Levain Bakery

Levain cookies are some of the best cookies that I have ever had. My favorite is the Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie. You have never seen a cookie so large in your life- they are literally the size of my face. These cookies are hard on the outside but soft and gooey on the inside. Just thinking about them is making me drool!

6. Bread’s Bakery

I stumbled upon this little bakery last summer because it was right around the corner from my office. One morning, they were standing outside with free samples of Chocolate Nutella Babka. Obviously I took one because how could I turn down a free sample? That bite was full of warm, chocolaty, gooey, goodness. I instantly became obsessed. It was so delicious that I had to go inside and buy some more. This babka is dangerously good.

7. Amorino

If you want authentic Italian Gelato, Amorino is your place. Every ice cream cone is an artistic creation. You choose as many flavors as you want and they shape it to look like a flower- the perfect Instagram opportunity!! But seriously, this place is the real deal.

8. Momofuku Milk Bar

Birthday Cake Truffles. That. Is. All.

9. Doughnut Plant

I had heard about this place for years and had always wanted to try it. Let me tell you, it was worth the hype. Out of all of the flavors I tried my favorites were the Coconut Cream and the Chocolate Hazelnut. The doughnuts were warm, fluffy, and full of flavor! How could you go wrong?

10. Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream

If you come to Morgenstern’s in the summer, you best be ready to wait in line. However, it is totally worth it. This homemade ice cream is so creamy and flavorful that you can taste the fresh ingredients. My go to flavor is the salted chocolate! I can honestly say this ice cream is among the best that I have ever had.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
