There is a new cupcake place in Needham, Treat. You can create your own frosting (think mix-ins for ice cream) or you can enjoy their creations. I have to say, that if I were 10 or under I would love to have my birthday party here or come to make my own. But if that isn't your scene go directly to their cupcakes. Here is the orgaencile cupcake, very nice with marshmallow frosting. The Boston cream was rich and not too sweet. The chocolate icing was rich and a nice compliment to the cake with the cream filling. The bottom two were the ones that my cupcake compadre and I did, too sweet. You just don't need gummy bear in icing.

Cake Pops

So, I read about these crazy cute items, cupcake pops by bakerella (if you have not read her blog, run, run to read it). So I thought, this will be super cute. And while yes, this was super cute it was A LOT of work. The lemon ones were the the best. I would do this again, but just make cake pops, not all the rest. Here is a very bad photo of my treat. What I like about this is that you could serve these at a party with no plates or forks, so a kids party would be perfect. Or a party at work. The challenge, getting them to the party and storing them once they are done. I made a holder, but next time I would prepare something else a head of time.
