Two Little Red Hens


New York City is a melting pot of bakeries. Italian cookies and French croissants abound, but what if you want old-fashioned red velvet cupcakes, an apple pie or a sticky bun? That’s where Two Little Red Hens steps in. This American bakery concocts over 100 delectable homemade faves from scratch. Owner and baker connoisseur Christina Winkler opened this gem 5 and a half years ago, but has been at home in the kitchen since she was a little girl, watching her grandmother and great-grandmother pull perfect pies out of their oven on a farm in Iowa. “The feel, the touch, the hand, the ability to actually make the product comes not just from a gift that you’re given, but from hours of watching someone else doing it the right way,” says Winkler, who certainly has a special knack for baked goods. The specialty birthday cakes are guaranteed to please, but we would devour the red velvet cake for any occasion.
