|Sprinkles Cupcake ATM in Los Angeles|
As a Boston bed and breakfast, we know a thing or two about indulging in sweets & treats, especially the infamous cupcake. It has been nearly 10 calorie filled years, since cupcakes became popularized in mainstream media (a la Sex & the City in July 2000 and various cupcake-centered cooking shows) and it does not show any signs of slowing down.
Well into 2012, cupcakes are still making headlines, including the newly conceived Sprinkles 24 Hour Cupcake ATM outside their flagship shop in Beverly Hills. Locally, the arrival of Crumbs Bake Shop to the Financial District is heaven for those seeking to satisfy their sweet tooth. For those who covet cupcakes, Boston bakeries offer a convenient crossroad of crowd-pleasing favorites and one of a kind flavors. If you are looking for fun things to do in Boston, consider our Boston Cupcake crawl.
Sweet Boston – Whether you are at their original location on Massachusetts Avenue in Back Bay or Newbury Street or even Harvard Square, a delicious cupcake is within reach. Consider trying one of their daily staples like Red Velvet or Organic Karat, which is topped with a piece of edible gold.
Cakeology – Here you will find flavors that remind you of favorite treats like “Milk & Cereal” made with crushed Froot Loops and buttermilk frosting. We also love the idea of a Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich gone cupcake and let’s not forget the outrageous Root Beer Float Cupcake. Unique flavors bring fun to this cupcake stop in the Downtown Crossing neighborhood.

Crumbs Bake Shop The Boston location may be new, but Crumbs arrived on the Cupcake scene in 2003. The signature size of the Crumbs Cupcake sets it apart from the competition. Many would consider the size shareable, but when you are hoping to sample one of the 50 plus flavors, the sharing rationale may go out the window. Our advice, go with a group, so you can tackle the size and put a dent into the list of fabulous flavors.
