Cupcake Royale makes some of the best cupcakes in the city. So logically, when you crumble said cupcakes into custard mix and freeze it, you’re going to get some of the city’s best ice cream, too. Bonus points if you get your ice cream scooped on top of an actual cupcake, which is a thing they somehow allow people to do here.
