Bay Ridge Cupcake Diaspora: Robicellis Court TV Fame, Little Cupcake Bakeshop Hits Nolita

By

The Robicellis were super busy this past weekend not only did they debut some Saved by the Bell cupcakes, but they posted an audition video pleading their case for a spot on Food Networks Cupcake Wars. Matt discusses putting his dreams of culinary school on hold in order to become a paramedic, only to return to the dream after he was injured during 9/11. Then they really go for the kill and put a chefs hat on their 2-year-old son, Toby (read an entry on the Robicelli blog to learn how the video came together after Toby fried the $2,000 laptop it was being edited on). Meanwhile, Little Cupcake Bakeshop (the Robicellis' main cupcake competition before they closed their Bay Ridge store and went wholesale) is opening a location in Nolita, according to NYC the Blog. It'll face off against the outpost of Billys Bakery that's also due to open in Nolita later this year.
