Believe it or not a shot of frosting is an option at Sweet Bakery located in Harvard Square Cambridge. The shop offers a cool selection of cupcakes and it’s menu changes as the seasons change. I visited the shop during the Fall so some of my options were S’mores, Caramel Apple, Pumpkin Pie, French Toast, Caramel Brownie and Salted Chocolate.
I ended up buying the Pumpkin Pie, the Caramel Brownie and the Sweet Cake Cupcakes:
All three cupcakes were fresh and very rich. My favorite was the Pumpkin Pie because it had a great pumpkin taste without being too overwhelming. The frosting on top was a nice complement to the cake. The Sweet Cake was pretty basic but still quite tasty. The Caramel Brownie was a bit too dense for my liking and very chocolately but it still was a pleasing treat; just make sure to have some milk or water nearby! Sweet Bakery is definitely worth a try.
