Sweet, Sweet Cupcakes in Boston...
Like most of my trips away, if I have the chance to eat cupcakes, well hell yeah I do! While staying in Boston, our guests were having a dinner for a close friend of theirs and it was their birthday. What better way to celebrate your birthday than with cupcakes?! I'm right aren't I.
I know of a few different cupcake places in Boston but we happened to stumble upon Sweet in Cambridge after shopping at Marimekko. It was hilarious as we were wandering around and I said to my husband, "Hey, I think that is a cupcake store across the road". I couldn't even see any cupcakes but the shops tend to have a certain aesthetic.
We got a case of various flavours (that's 12 cupcakes!) including 2 Red Velvet ones. I am usually disappointed with most Red Velvet cupcakes as the amazing Jess from Sugadeaux cupcakes in Melbourne makes one of the best in the whole entire world - well in my opinion! I was pleased to hear from her via twitter that she approved of the Sweet Red Velvet cupcake - it was pretty good!
Other than the Red Velvet cupcake, I think my next favourite was the Organic Karat, which was topped with a delicious cream cheese icing and a beautiful edible gold leaf petal. Very simple in appearance and very stylish.
And to prove how awesome these cupcakes were, here is a shot of the demolition of the Red Velvet cupcake at the birthday dinner! Even when it is all mushed, it still looks good!
