Proprietor Etwin Gordon, a graduate of the American Institute of Culinary Arts, hails from Canarsie but chose to open up shop in Clinton Hill because “it’s an up-and-coming neighborhood.”Sounds great, has anyone else had a chance to stop in?
Upon first bite, Oral Fixation was surprised at the delicacy with which Ms. Gordon’s cupcake toed the fine line between kitchen table and patisserie. The cake has a fruity, subtle sweetness and delicate crumb; the icing is sugary, suffused with coconut andalmost toothy in texture, triggering memories of grade-school birthdays past.

I'm a day late on this one, but thanks to Oral Fixation at The Local for writing up the new bakery on Fulton, Essential Cakes.
