best cupcakes in Manhattan?

I have led many cupcake crawls in all parts of the city, and one of my favorites is the classic chocolate cupcake from Balthalzar, very delicious and a thing of beauty.

brownies

I would recommend the brownie at Jacques Torres Chocolate, in Greenwich Village, on Hudson & King St. The brownie is made by an expert who is a classically trained French chef, who uses the finest imported cacao from Belgium, and freshly made on premises.

What makes DiFara Pizza the best?

It's hard to find a good fresh slice anywhere, that I'm thinking of opening my own place.
If I copied the success of DiFara, what should I know?
