Local Cupcake Stores

        Over the past couple of years cupcake stores have popped up near my town. They have become a popular place to grab something after dinner with your friends. Some stores have become a place to go for your birthday party. These are two of the stores that are located near me.

        One of these stores is Treat Cupcake Bar. At this store you have two choices; you can either purchase one of the freshly made cupcakes or you can make your own. The flavors vary from your original: chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet to the unique flavors: Lemon Drop, Funky Chunky Oreo, and Peanut Butter Overload. If you choose to make your own you start by picking a cupcake flavor and then a frosting. Then to spice up the cupcake you can pick from a list of treats to add to the icing. Some of these treats are Nerds, Sprinkles, Gummy Worms, Oreos, Sour Patch Kids, and Dark Chocolate Chips. The workers mix in the treats with the frosting and then put some of the frosting on the cupcake and the extra in a little cup for you to add to the cupcake if you want. I have been there multiple times and once for a birthday. I enjoyed this place and you can taste how fresh the cupcakes are. It is a fun place to go at any age. Have any of you tried out this place? Do you know of any other places like this? Would you want to bring your friends to this place?

         A very recent store in Boston is Georgetown Cupcake. This store franchise got started when TLC made a show called DC Cupcakes that followed the success of the two sisters who own the store. The cupcakes vary each day of the week and each season. There are also everyday flavors that are inthe store all the time. For each day of the week there are five flavors. On Monday the flavors are Chocolate Coconut, Chocolate Mint, Cinnamon, Honey Banana, and Toffee Crunch. I have never been to this store but I would love to go and see what it’s like next time I am in Boston. Is there a Georgetown Cupcake store near you? Would you like to try any of their different flavors?

I have been to the Treat Cupcake Bar; it was a lot of fun! The first cupcake I got from there was an ultimate chocolate cupcake. It was so delicious! I have been back since and I did a make your own cupcake. It was so much fun to choose my flavor, frosting and toppings! I would like to share this cupcake place with everyone! They have opened up a few stands in the Natick Mall. I have yet to purchase one from a stand but I am always tempted to.

This is a great looking blog with fantastic colors and interesting content! I was actually in DC a few months ago and saw where TLC filmed the DC Cupcakes show. There was a line down the street to get in! Nicely done.

This is pretty cool! I wish they had cupcake shops around where I lived! We don't have any cake or cupcake shops, but we do have some ice cream shops! The Treat Cupcake Bar sound really cool, I would like to go there some day! I like peanut butter so that Peanut Butter overload sounds great to me! Do you go to these stores often or have you just seen them? I really like your blog so I think I'll comment again!
