Cupcakes will always be a favorite dessert––especially among kids who get their own personal portion of sweetness to hold in the palm of their hand. Cupcakes are also cuter than cake and prettier than pie with no utensils required to dig right in. Scroll through our gallery of local cupcakeries serving up the best-looking, best-tasting treats in town, in delectable flavors like s’mores, strawberry shortcake, salted caramel––even lemon pinot grigio!
