One of the things I've been looking forward to most with our recent move back to New England was the 4th of July. Nothing, and I mean nothing beats Boston for fireworks and fun! I'm lucky enough to have a very close girlfriend (who happens to be getting married .. more on that soon)with a fabulous roof deck overlooking the Charles River. I was over the moon when she called and invited Dade and I over for food, the fly over, fireworks and a giant pitcher of sangria. We couldn't show up empty handed, so I decided to swing into her favorite place for dessert, a cupcake shop called Sweet. I immediately knew I had to share this place with the wedding community!
Sweet just opened up a few months ago in Boston’s Back Bay at 49 Massachusetts Avenue between Marlborough Street and Commonwealth Avenue. Upon walking through the door, you get hit with the most amazing battery good scent, and then your eyes hit the case piled high with the most spectacular cupcakes ever. All of the frostings, fillings and batters are freshly prepared from scratch and from the highest quality ingredients available. They are baked each morning in the Sweet kitchen. Ready-to-eat, seasonal specialty flavors, special decoration and limited edition cupcakes are made, served and delivered with care. Custom and special orders are baked and decorated to order.
Dade immediately said, "we need one of each!" The young woman who helped us carefully packed each cupcake into a box, and made it ready to hand over as the perfect hostess gift. When we arrived at our friend's, she saw the box and a loud, high-pitched squeal followed. I can tell you that after dinner, they were devoured in minutes. The Boston Creme Pie and Lemon were especially well received. So.... if you're in the area and looking for cupcakes for a bridal shower, wedding, or just a gift for a friend I highly recommend giving this place a spin. I'll be back!
