A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Haven’t had a party favors cupcake? Have you been hibernating? Hiding under a rock?

Haven’t had a party favors cupcake? Have you been hibernating? Hiding under a rock?

The jumbo cupcake goes for $2.75 and is worth every sugary penny. I always go for the gold cake. I’ve had a lot of cupcakes in my time, I’ve seen all sorts of flavors with all sorts of fancy toppings, but the real test of a great cupcake is how good a simple vanilla and vanilla cupcake is. If you can’t get the basics right, why bother trying the fancier types? Anyone can throw candy or fun things on top of frosting and call it a cupcake, but who can stand on just cake and frosting. Party favors has wonderfully moist cake, it could be delicious all by itself. The frosting is sweet enough to put you into a sugar coma. If you are looking for the proper icing to cake ratio, look elsewhere, this is go big or go home. I can’t say enough good things about this place.

It’s easy to be distracted when you walk into Party Favors, with all their choices of cakes and cupcakes, the candy counter, the pies and tarts and the various other desserts. Don’t be distracted-eyes on the prize. Stick with the simple and dependable. I’ve tried the other cupcakes (peanut butter, key lime etc) and they just aren’t as good. These are the best cupcakes I have had in Massachusetts, but not in the whole country. Definitely stop in for a cupcake or 6 if you’re in the neighborhood.

Stopped in to buy a cake this weekend (3/26). The cakes never disappoint. They have them ready made in the case (chocolate ones have toothpicks and vanilla/gold ones do not) and you can order specialty cakes in advance. The cake is fresh and moist and the frosting, like with the cupcakes, is impossibly sweet and delicious! This one was a gold cake with vanilla frosting, double layer (in the $20 neighborhood).
