The Bear and I discovered The Cupcakerie at the RIC Farmer's Market last summer. She's been addicted to their cupcakes ever since. Each time we go to the Wintertime Farmer's Market, I can be sure a portion of Bear's allowance will go to a Velvet Elvis (red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and sparkles). I'm almost as bad. The Cupcakerie's coconut cupcake is heaven, and their Lavender Vanilla is amazing. They have plenty of other flavors as well, and we've tried most of them (I made a lunch out of their Carrot Cake one Saturday). They're made with fresh local ingredients, and reasonably priced.
Today The Cupcakerie and its sister business, Jack's Snacks, were on the front page of the Providence Journal's Food section. Congratulations on the well-deserved attention!
