New! Cupcake City in Newtonville

Do you like cupcakes? There’s a new cupcake store in Newtonville! PickyKidPix and I dashed in between errands to check it out.

The first thing we noticed was the enticing aroma of vanilla and other delicious aromas as we entered the store. The cupcakes are in attractive display cases and it’s hard to decide!

These were the flavors of the day:

Eventually, we decided on Red Velvet, Hostess, Lemon and Mint Chocolate.

It was hard to resist sampling in the car, at least for my daughter. She tried them all. Her favorite was the Hostess which tastes like a Ding Dong only so much better. It’s very chocolate-y with a moist, rich crumb. There’s a cream filling inside too. I got a bite but I would have liked an entire Hostess cupcake for myself!

The Lemon Cupcake has a lemony custard inside. It was delicious with a tangy lemon flavor.

I think the Mint Chocolate cupcakes are sculptural and beautiful. They were delicious too!

The Red Velvet cupcake was the outlier. PickyKidPix said it was a little dry. It’s possible that it was an off day for the Red Velvet and, because it’s my daughter’s favorite, she can be a tough judge.

Still, three of the four cupcakes were delectable. We’ll be back!
