Sunday was another culinary expedition to Boston, Cambridge and Somerville. One of the stops was Kickass Cupcakes in Somerville, a place I have wanted to visit for sometime. As their name indicates, they primarily sell cupcakes.
Their store is open six days a week, being closed on Mondays. Their cupcakes are baked fresh every day and they state they use the best ingredients. They have some simple cupcakes, vanilla or chocolate, with vanilla or chocolate buttercream frosting. They also have more exotic cupcakes such as Cinnamon Chai Pecan Sticky, the Mojito and Berry Crumbly. They also have special flavors each day. For example, on Tuesdays they have a Banana Cream cupcake. The cupcakes certainly look very appetizing. They cost $2.75 each though, which is pricey for a cupcake. So it would be $33 for a dozen cupcakes. You can also special order mini cupcakes for $1 each or supersize cupcakes at $3.75 each.
You can even order a deep-fried cupcake ($4 each) which consists of a cream-stuffed vanilla cupcake dipped in sweet batter, deep fried, and then drizzled with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. I had one of these and it was decadently delicious. Lots of great flavor and of course so much better fried.
Interestingly, you can even get special cupcakes for your cat or dog. The cat cupcake has cheese and catnip sprinkled on it. My cats though mainly ate the catnip and ignored the rest.
Kickass also can do special orders as well as limited delivery.
This is a place for a special treat. It is too pricey for a regular visit but it is worth a visit if you have not been there. I will return there to try some of their other cupcakes but I won't make it a usual spot on my trips into Somerville.
