Flour & Sun Bakery

Snap(shot) Judgements are posts that will appear with no real regularity. It’s primarily a way for us to get thoughts and photos up as soon as possible, especially when we have no plan to write a feature-length column on the subject. Here, Gary makes a morning stop for cupcakes in Pleasantville, NY.

This past Saturday morning I was up in Pleasantville, NY for a beer release. By morning, I mean I was up at 6:30 am, out the door by 7, on a train by 7:45 and in Westchester by 8:30. Why was I up there so early, you may wonder? Well, it was for a beer release at noon and I didn’t want to be left out of the limited offerings (you can start shaking your head in sadness now, folks). If you do the math correctly, that meant I had over three hours to kill before noon. After a breakfast in a nearby diner, some friends and I walked around and came upon Flour & Sun Bakery, the self-proclaimed “first and only cupcake bakery” in Westchester. That may be somewhat misleading (not the first part) since I do believe they bake regular-sized cakes but they are indeed primarily a cupcake shop. A decent one at that but at $2.75 and $3 for their cupcakes, I wouldn’t say it’s worth what you’re paying. But, hey, when you’re the only game in town, good is good enough.

Flour & Sun Bakery

A tiny little shop with some cupcakes in display cases up front but very sparsely decorated.


We got three cupcakes. Clockwise, from top left, are the Red Velvet, Creamsicle, and Loop-d-Loop.


The Loop-d-Loop is a chocolate cupcake with a cream filling and chocolate ganache frosting. Yes, it looks like a Hostess cupcake.

Loop-d-Loop Innards

It tasted as expected – a moist cupcake with lots of chocolate flavor and a nice cream filling.
