cupcake à la français or American

While not having had the chance to sample myself, I have only heard good things about Butter Lane's cupcakes in the East Village. They also whip up both French and American style buttercream icing (!)
What's the difference? French buttercream is made with egg whites, butter and granulated sugar, while American buttercream is made with confectioners sugar and butter. The French is more like a meringue while the American is like the familiar icing we all know.
A business which bakes cupcakes + includes a bicycle on a promotion material is one worth noting in my book.

Thanks, Masha, for passed on their business card.
