Tonnie's Mini Cupcakes
Tonnie Rozier was about ready to open up Harlem's first cupcake specialty store in late October when the call came from the Wendy Williams Show.
The daytime talk-show hostess wanted to feature his Tonnie's Minis shop as part of National Dessert Week. Rozier put icing production in high gear.
"Since we opened up our doors, there hasn't been a dull moment," said Rozier, 40.
Located at 264 Lenox Ave. at 123rd St., Rozier's shop is just one in a growing number of gourmet cupcake bakeries whose colorful, cream-filled display cases have popped up all over Manhattan.
Cupcakes, which come in a slew of sizes, designs and flavors, have become the new indulgent edible emblem of a city long known for picky and diverse eaters.
