You Baristaville people need to check out the amazing cupcakes at Mr. Cupcakes here in neighboring Clifton!
I just had one and it’s definitely worth the trip.
I brought the experts — my two kids — to check out the goods. Finding the place was easy (take Grove past Rte.3 to Van Houten, make a right). Choosing a cupcake was more of a challenge — the menu has a list of both tried and true “executives” as well as interns lobbying for permanent status. If a Reese’s peanut butter cup could be reincarnated as a cupcake, it would be Mr. Cupcake’s Peanut Butterful Chocolate. My son loved the Average Joe (yellow cake, chocolate frosting) as well as the Triple Chocolate, which had a bittersweet dark chocolate frosting. My daughter swooned over the Carrot Cake and the S’mores. The cupcakes, at a $1.50 each, are dense and satisfying (you’ll want to eat two, but you won’t have room). Split them so you can try a couple flavors.
