Rhode Island is often associated with sandy beaches. In these charming Colonial towns, you will find remnants of bygone ages, as well as summer fun at the seaside. Despite being one of the smaller states, Rhode Island has several large cities, including its capital, Providence.
The state also boasts delicious cupcakes, which can satisfy any craving for baked goods you may have while visiting this historically significant region. Come with us to Rhode Island, which is part of the New England region, to visit the five best cupcake bakeries.
1. Cupcake Charlie's, Newport, Rhode Island
The company now has locations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, but it all started here with familiar favorites in its arsenal, such as carrot cake, red velvet, and Hostess cupcakes. But one menu item stands out among the rest. The Orange Dreamsicle is very popular among regulars.
It's an orange zest cake with cream filling and orange buttercream frosting. This particular cupcake item is proof that Orange when added as an ingredient, can make baked goods extra special. Bakers should use it much more frequently.
The bakery offers 16 award-winning cupcake flavors every day, as well as cakes and dessert tarts. Besides offering sweet treats like trifle cups, large chewy cookies, cake pops, frosting shots, and coffee and tea, Cupcake Charlie's has been featured on the hit television show "Cupcake Wars." Additionally, there are gluten-free cupcakes, as well as ice cream, stuffed cupcakes, and "whoop cakes."

2. The Cupcakerie, Cranston, Rhode Island
Food lovers and dog lovers will find this spot appealing. This is where we treat ourselves and our dogs after a walk. As part of Jack's Snacks, the Cupcakerie produces tasty cupcakes and nutritious treats for dogs.
However, we drove here for the real deal - Their cupcake menus fit for humans. They have offerings that bear cute labels such as "Wake Up and Smell the Cupcake" and the "Shake Your Coconuts".
We were indeed woken up by the "Wake Up," which included mocha cake and espresso cream cheese frosting. On the other hand, "Shake Your Coconuts" is topped with toasted coconut, coconut cake, and buttercream frosting. Both frostings were delicious. The cakes are a bit dry, but some people prefer that.
