The best thing in life is sometimes to have a great, sugary cupcake. The following are five places throughout the state that offer tasty cupcakes in many flavors and varieties. Lists like these are in no particular order, but you are warned, they'll leave you hungry.
1. Sugar Cupcakery & Bakery, East Haven, Connecticut
Sugar Bakery has been in business for more than ten years and has become one of the best bakeries in Connecticut. With their collective baking knowledge and passion for dessert, the mother-daughter team at Sugar has developed cupcakes like their signature cannoli - vanilla cupcakes with chocolate chip cannoli cream filling, vanilla buttercream, and mini morsels. Some of the other flavors include wedding cake, apple pie, and trick or treat!
Its success lies in embracing its coastal Northeast roots and churning out a wide variety of cupcakes.

2. J Cakes, North Branford, Connecticut
Considering that cupcakes tend to be topped with a lot of sugary icing, it's refreshing to see a cupcake stand out with just a simple swirl of icing. But J Cakes have more to offer than expert icing. They have an ooey-gooey mousse flavoring that delights guests every time. We suggest you try the cannoli cupcake: vanilla cake layered with cannoli cream, atop French vanilla buttercream, and topped with cannoli shell pieces.
