Cake in a Box-15 Broad St, Bridgewater, MA 02324
Stumbled upon this place as we were driving through Bridgewater center. Very small, you might miss it if you don't look carefully. It's located next door to D'Angelos. They have a large selection of "jumbo" gourmet cupcakes baked daily and available anytime in store. The cupcakes are indeed larger than we are accustomed to. The store has a very unique spin to it and the cupcakes certainly follow in their uniqueness.

Very quaint shop with friendly staff. Always make us feel welcome each time we pop in. My favorite cupcake here is the Chocolate Sundae. It is moist and chocolatey. The chocolate ganache is the perfect touch. My husband enjoys the seasonal Chocolatey Chip Cookie. This one has chocolate chip cookie dough baked on the bottom of a chocolate cupcake finished with vanilla buttercream and a cookie wedge. What makes this place different from the many we have visited is their "minis". These are literally mini cupcakes perfectly made for the hands of my girls. Just enough cupcake to satisfy and no waste! They finish 2 each without a problem.

We found this gem right up the road from Nelson Park. The place is known for it's cakes, cookies and cupcakes. As we first walked in, we thought it was just for cakes because the counter didn't have a whole lot to choose from. After further investigation we saw that they were indeed open to the public. They were very busy preparing their weekend orders, but a sweet young lady quickly tended to us and we left with 3 yummy treats.

We visit this shop quite often as it has become a family favorite. I have tried just about every cupcake in the place and can't say I have a favorite. They are all that good! I just never seem to take pictures so here is one from our very first visit last year. We have also tried their cakes, also very good and the cake decorators are fantastic. Any cupcake they make can be made into a cake, and vice versa.
We wouldn't call this last place local, but it's worth sharing. On our weekend up to Story Land we stopped at the famous White Mountain Cupcakery. Located in the Mount Washington Valley at 2757 White Mountain Hwy, Conway, NH. The White Mountain Cupcakery was featured on Cupcake Wars.
