Snowman Cupcakes, Get ‘Em While They’re Hot

Q: What’s the perfect snack on a cold New England night?

A: A snowman cupcake!

Given that we probably won’t get more than 5 inches of snow this whole season (what gives??), a snowman cupcake may also be your best bet to savor the white stuff. On the advice of a co-worker, I headed over to Party Favors in Brookline to try their cupcakes. Party Favors is located just on the other side of Coolidge Corner on Beacon St. I always thought that a party supply store would be an odd choice for baked goods. However, once I stepped inside Party Favors, I was pleasantly surprised at what I found. The first room is a combined bakery and candy shop with the scent of sweetness filling the air. Apparently there is at least one other room with party favors and the like but I never made it there. I was captivated by this tray of snowman cupcakes. What a clever idea! There were racks of cakes and pies and other cupcakes. After deciding on a snowman cupcake, I also picked up a Key Lime cupcake.

Let me just say that both cupcakes were excellent! The frosting alone was worth the purchase, perfectly sweet and sugary. The Key Lime cupcake had a wonderful lime filling inside and for some reason, tasted better leftover. Treat yourself to one today!
