Last week my dad had to come to Boston for work, so my mom tagged along and we got to spend the week together! I loved having her here to do and appreciate all the touristy things I tend to take for granted in this beautiful city I call home. Obviously I had to show her all my favorite cupcake joints, which resulted in a mini cupcake taste-test and a potential NEW FAVORITE CUPCAKE. Can it be???
We thought the cake from Sweet was a little dry, but their frosting continues to BLOW my mind in its deliciousness. We were unimpressed with the Boston Cream Pie from Curly Cakes, mostly because it was missing the cream filling? Isn’t that sort of key?
But the totally unexpected winner? Chocolate peanut butter from Mike’s Pastry! Though I love their cannolis, WHO KNEW Mike’s Pastry had unbelievable cupcakes?? Their peanut butter buttercream is perfection and even managed to rival my favorite buttercream, and the chocolate cupcake is stuffed with a huge blob of STRAIGHT PEANUT BUTTER. Gen.ius. If you haven’t tried Mike’s Pastry for cupcakes yet, it’s a must!!
