2011 Cupcakes

Colonial Farms

At a time when cupcakery is becoming not just an overdone art (we’ll pass on the chocolate-covered bacon sprinkles, thanks) but a reviled one, Colonial Farms bucks the trend with back-to-basics flavors. The chocolate, vanilla and killer red velvet cakes are adorned with occasionally cutesy icing creations (flowers, frogs, etc.), but the taste hits that just-like-Mom’s sweet spot that was always the point of the cupcake’s sudden rise to celebrity.
