78. Salty Caramel Cupcake From Sweeter Days
Salt and caramel is a classic pairing on this elaborate cupcake. It's the refrain as garnish on butter cream frosting and as the innards of this cupcake from Sweeter Days Bake Shop.
"We're all about flavors here," says proprietor Will Rubino. They're also about the cake decor. A tower of frosting and intricate toppings add extra flourish to cake that's spongy, moist and fresh.
Stop in the shop for a latte and watch bakers at work behind the glass divide. If you're lucky, you'll see them piping butter cream and adding the finishing touches to make these sweet treats sweeter.
Cupcake flavors include red velvet, Boston cream, lemon dream, Key lime, carrot cake, and a
specialty creation called seventh heaven -- a mix of dark chocolate
fudgy cake with chocolate chunks.
