cakes in a cup

Boston has welcomed me back with hat stealing gusts of wind and temperatures that make a northern New England native shudder with a glance at the thermometer. Or, at least that's what I did this morning. None the less, I decided that this afternoon was a good time for a long walk around Kenmore Square. It was a really horrible idea. Even though I bundled up with my favorite tartan scarf and black leather gloves, I still froze. On my way back from that stupidly planned and downright frigid walk, I stopped in at a little Boston-based cupcake bakery (shop? store? parlor?) called "Sweet" to take a look around.

I have a pretty large sweet tooth. It is bigger than all the other teeth and always gets its way. Though, as a broke student only eye candy had to suffice. They were very photogenic!

Don't they look so adorable? No other pastry has as much style as these little ones. Yum!

Also, apparently there is going to be another blizzard tomorrow. The coffee shop is even going to be closed in anticipation of the suspected 12" of the white powdery stuff. Perhaps a good day to try out some of my own cupcake recipes?


  1. yum! these look so delicious. i'm so glad that boston is embracing the cupcake frenzy. i lived there for 4 years before moving to nyc, and back then they never had any great cupcake bakeries the way that nyc does.

    great post!
    xx grace
