Boston Cupcake Crawl

So maybe it's more of a drive than a crawl.

Recently Boston.com posted an article listing cupcake bakeries around the city. There are 8 different places to get your cupcake fix. I've listed them below (in the event that the article gets removed) in no particular order. Someday Delightful Cakery will be on that list.

I've only been to one of these places, Sweet. Sweet is not a misnomer. Their frosting is definitely on the sweet side. In general, their cupcakes are dense, a bit on the dry side, and lack flavor. The frosting is an american buttercream frosting that over powers the cake. They do however make an incredible Orange Boston Cream cupcake. The cake is light and fluffy. And the custard has the perfect hint of orange flavoring. It's a definite must have.

My friend and I are planning to for a cupcake crawl sometime in the spring, on a warm sunny day. I'll update with pictures and opinions when that happens.
