Babycakes makes me swoon

Visited Babycakes cupcake shop in Quincy for the 2nd time over the weekend... While I have never been head over heels for sometime so plain as cupcakes - these are exceptional. The shop is just a tiny storefront with a few small tables. The back of the shop is a case that displays the available cupcakes. The proprietor makes them fresh daily and when they are out, she closes.

In our group we had a cappuccino, chocolate w/vanilla frosting, and a Boston creme pie. We were all happy as three year-olds licking our sticky fingers. None of the flavors overwhelmed - or underwhelmed. The cappuccino was moist and and had a dollop of fluffy whipped cream on top dusted with cinnamon. Boston creme pie had perfect creme filling that was sweet but light and flavorful. The old stand-by chocolate cupcake did not disappoint either. The cupcake was velvety soft with airy frosting that was sweet perfection.

The shop is owned and run by one woman, Kerry, who is sweet as pie. She chats with every customer and was thrilled to find out that the customers in front of us had driven all the way from Norwood to buy their cupcakes.
