Sinful Snacks: Sweet Generation, a Unicorn Cupcake with a Mission

Firstly, I’d like to welcome our newest contributor Gina Rizzi-Lakiotes, the star of YouTube’s Mermaid Eats. She’ll be sharing her favorite savory spots in NYC with us. While we wait for the much anticipated Halloween Treats review, Mermaid Eats made a quick trip to the East Village bakery, Sweet Generation.

Not only are they pumping out deliciously adorable desserts, but they are a on a mission to help NYC’s youth. So, you can feel little less guilty about that unicorn cupcake (or two).

Sweet Generation is a social enterprise bakery in NYC, with a retail store, wholesale operation, and a social mission program (RISE) that trains and employs young people from marginalized communities in our creative bakery space, while empowering and preparing them to access quality employment.


With every purchase of our award winning cupcakes and pastries, you are supporting our mission. Thank you for helping us #sweetenthefuture!
