Bay Ridge-based Little Cupcake Bakeshop is now ready for the masses at 30 Prince Street. After months of renovations, the tagged-to-death plywood was peeled away and removed late last week, revealing a fresh whitewashed facade and striped wraparound awnings. The cupcakery soft-opened last night for treats and cocktails.

This new cupcake presence at the corner of Mott and Prince had already attracted some snooping from passing pedestrians.  Friday afternoon, we watched a handful of people jump above the boundary of window paper to capture a quick peek inside. What they saw was an interior with a nuevo-colonial type feel defined by checkered floors, chandeliers, exposed brick, and an American flag.  Get ready for lines…

The Little Cupcake Bakeshop prides itself on being a “green” establishment that is dedicated to a mission of carbon neutrality.  Aside from eco-friendly practices such as using energy-efficient lighting, the cupcakery donates proceeds to the tree-planting Carbon Fund. In the meantime, the owners are still pursuing the ever-coveted LEED certification.
