Alison’s Favorite Things (vol. 20)

Cupcakes came onto the wedding scene several years ago and I’ve heard suggestions that they have “had their day”, but I personally cannot imagine cupcakes ever going out of style.  My Little Cupcake specializes in “yummy little cupcakes for every occasion” and they have been a guilty pleasure of mine for a while now.  These bite-size treats (or 2 to 3 bite-size if you are more civilized) are made up of a moist, delicious cake and just the right amount of fabulous buttercream frosting and then each is finished with decor to match its flavor.  The other day I tasted pure perfection in their salted caramel cupcake.  I repeat, perfection.  The tasty chocolate cupcake is topped with an amazing caramel buttercream frosting, a caramel drizzle and a pinch of sea salt on top.  When I say it’s perfection I am not exaggerating.

A few of the other delicious flavors I’ve tried include chocolate mint, almond joyful, mocha, cookies n’ cream, and quite frankly even the vanilla are absolutely scrumptious, but in my opinion the salted caramel is IT.  Check out Michelle’s creations at and pick up a little box the next time you’re at Sweet Clover Market in Essex (my local cupcake pusher!), City Market, Healthy Living and Shelburne Supermarket or make a special order for your wedding day.
