Boston Cupcakes & Treats

Boston Cupcakes & Treats

We were in Boston for just a few days. There are a lot of bakeries and I’m ashamed we didn’t have a chance to get to them all but we still made some fun stops! I read Phoung’s guide to Boston for Cakespy. Phoung’s got a super cute blog.

We stopped at Sweet. I was really looking forward to this place but we were a little disappointed.

The maple cranberry cupcake was pretty awful. I have a pretty high tolerance for sweet things but this frosting was so sickly sweet I couldn’t eat it. The cake part was more like a muffin and I couldn’t taste any cranberry.

The Boston Cream cupcake was better. I liked the super light spongy cake. Alex got a naked salted chocolate. I didn’t taste it but he didn’t like it.

I got a peanut butter cannoli. They had so many interesting flavors. Unlike Modern Pastry the cannoli’s are already filled and on display.

  1. I will happily sample some of that caramel apple ice cream.

  2. The cannolis’s look amazing! I can’t wait to go to the States next year and sample all these goodies and more!

  3. It seems that you have spent a tour of the local cafe

  4. Thanks for the link Kelly! I’m glad that you got to try a few of our bakeries! Too bad the cupcakes at Sweet was a miss that day. I’m so happy that food trucks are more available in Boston now :) Hope you have a chance to visit again and try more sweets!

    • I was really disappointed since I’d read a lot of good things about Sweet. I think sometimes I make the mistake of picking the “seasonal” offering which sometimes isn’t as good as the usual staples. I can’t wait to go back!
