Cake.

After visiting a potential wedding venue, we were on a mission to find a Starbucks. There are no Starbucks in the vicinity of the venue so we had to go a few towns over. We ended up in a cute neighborhood of Lexington, MA. While exploring, we stumbled upon Cake. I have to give Jake credit for finding it.

There's no way that you can show me a cupcake joint and not expect me to walk away with at least 2 cupcakes. We ended up with 1 standard sized cupcake and 4 mini cupcakes: 
  • Peanut Butter - chocolate cake iced in a peanut butter butter cream and garnished with a reese's peanut butter cup
  • Mocha Express - Bittersweet chocolate cake iced in a cappuccino buttercream and garnished with a mocha espresso bean
  • Black Tie Affair Sweet vanilla bean cake filled with our own pastry cream and dressed in ganache
  • Red Carpet - Smooth, deep red velvet cake laid out with a decadent cream cheese icing
Sorry, we completely forgot to take pictures before we devoured them. Overall, the cupcakes were pretty tasty in terms of flavor. The cake part was a bit dried out, probably because they were mini cakes and had been sitting in their fridge all day (and sat in our fridge for additional time). The frosting wasn't bad. They use American buttercream (butter and powerdered sugar), but it wasn't overly sweet. A definite plus in my book.
