Founded by sisters Carmen Rodriguez and Gina Madera, Brooklyn Cupcake is a story of unconditional belief and unrelenting commitment. Founded in 2010, Brooklyn Cupcake was born out of challenge and has grown to represent hope for a community that help lift it to becoming the Best of New York. When owner Carmen Rodriguez found herself at a career crossroads, she recruited her sister Gina Madera and cousin Michelle Caballero to help her create something special in their hometown of Brooklyn. Building this cupcake shop would require family and friends to join together and commit to making Carmen’s vision a reality. It wasn’t long before the little neighborhood spot would start to get big attention. What began as simply weekend cupcakes for the family children has become NYC’s celebrated new cupcake shop. Taking advantage of their mixed cultural background and Brooklyn upbringing, with the help of their cousin, Michele Caballero, the sisters created a menu of Puerto Rican and Italian inspired cupcakes. The flavors included favorites like Flan, Dulce de Leche, Tres Leche, Tiramisu, Rainbow Cookie and Coquito. Today Brooklyn Cupcake is The Best of New York as per the NY Daily News readers. The shop is listed in the Zagat NY Dining Guide and enjoys an incredible following throughout the Tri-State area and beyond.
