Prohibition Bakery is located at 9 Clinton Street on the Lower East Side, NYC. The bakery creates bite-sized boozy filled cupcakes with no artificial flavoring such as Pretzels & Beer (Sixpoint Sweet Action, Nutella, pretzel, white truffle), Old Fashioned (whiskey, bitters, orange, cherry), Birthday Cake (lemon, vodka, Frangelico) and more. Menus are often updated according to season. In 2014 Prohibition Bakery launched a new product called RumDrops, which are alcoholic gumdrops.
Co-founders Brooke Siem and Leslie Feinberg met on a Birthright trip in 2011. The concept was started when Brooke decided to make Cosmo cupcakes for a friend's bachelorette party. From there they created a Kickstarter and were able to raise over $12,000 to open their storefront in 2012. Before they started making boozy desserts Brooke was a trained chef who worked at many of the top restaurants, and Leslie was a long-time bartender & baker.
