Today, I was feeling a little under the weather because of the colds going around campus. I needed some good comfort food, and the first place that came into mind was Sweet. I mentioned them last week in my tribute to my love for pumpkin – But this time, I decided to try something new.
I dragged my friend out of bed to join me in my excursion to gorge myself on delicious cupcakes with promises of free pastries. We took the long, exhaustive walk on the Square; and three minutes later, the much-beloved sign appeared.
The décor of Sweet never fails to make me feel happy. I love the cute little boxes stacked on top of each other, and their new pink Jack-o’-lantern makes an adorable finish to the cozy little bakery.
But most of all, the sheer number of options to choose from is what makes Sweet my favorite cupcake store. From dark chocolate to french toast, Sweet has a very interesting variety of flavors that I haven’t seen anywhere else. They even have a flavor called “pupcakes”, which Sweet calls a “yummy treat for our canine friends.”
So today, prior to walking into the bakery, I relied on Sweet’s varied flavors to find some cupcakes that I’ve never tried before. Forget vanilla and chocolate – I wanted to try something new and unique.
Sweet certainly did not disappoint. So today, for lunch, I got to have Apple Pie, Caramel Apple, and Apple Cider Doughnut cupcakes. It was certainly one of the best lunches I’ve ever had. The apple fillings in Apple Pie and Caramel Apple was just simply delicious, and eating all those cupcakes with Sweet’s coffee ended my afternoon on a very high note.
