I don't even remember where I first heard about Wicked Good Cupcakes- it might have been on Boston.com, or...somewhere. The point is when I heard about this mother daughter team of cupcake creators, well my heart went out to them. They began by just taking a cake decorating class together, just as a way to bond. Proud of their work, they posted some photos on line for friends and family to look at, the surprise came when the anticipated support became requests and orders for their creations. Today they own and operate Wicked Good Cupcakes together- a business where they daily bake their cup cakes using only real, fresh ingredients- no mixes allowed.
Last week I was contacted by their PR and asked if I'd like to try out one of their more creative initiatives- cupcakes in a jar. Recalling the story- I immediately agreed. So, after spending all of last week working in California, including many plane transfers and delays, I was thrilled to receive three little mason jars stuffed full of cake and frosting. Really- does anything sound any better?
I'll be honest- I was a little worried about shipped cupcakes. I was concerned they'd be stale- dried out from their travels. However as I cracked open the first vacuum sealed jar (Cuckoo for Coconut) I found how very wrong I was. The cake was as moist as it had been if it had been baked that day. Coconut butter cream frosting encapsulated the lovely vanilla cake- making for the perfect balance of coconut and just delicious cake.
Having no will power at all, I ripped into the remaining jars- a Marble Mutt and a Cookies N Creme. The Marble Mutt, a blend of dark chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and dark chocolate an vanilla butter cream icings, contained the same moist cake, and the icings did compliment each other well. It was a solid offering, however after the coconut, I felt a little let down. The Cookies N Creme however brought me right back. Vanilla cupcakes layered with Oreo crumbles and topped with Vanilla Cream Cheese Butter cream frosting -this was a delicious cupcake. The Oreos, somehow, had maintained their crunch adding a perfect amount of texture variate to the cake, and the frosting brought it all home.
I was truly thrilled to try out Wicked Good Cupcakes- not just Becca's a delivery of cupcakes is pretty awesome- but because of the great work this mother daughter team is doing. I was even more thrilled that their cakes are fresh and delicious. These are the perfect treat for anyone who deserves a little cake in their life- no matter how far away from you they might be.

Ooh! I am getting some of these too. So excited to try them. Sounds like they're really good!
Oh wow, these cupcakes sound perfect! I love the idea of shipping them in mason jars!
What an intriguing idea. I might have to try some of those. the Marble Mutt sounds delicious!
Ummm....these look AMAZING! They even look more appealing to me than actual cupcakes. Is that weird?
I have been seeing these a bunch of places as well and I just was not sure what to think! They do look amazing!
I ordered these after the TSA story in January. They are amazing. I've sent them as gifts to everyone I know (including myself :-)
