It's begining to look a lot like Christmas!

Welcome to December 2010! December represents many different things to different people.  To me, it means the count down to Christmas can officially begin, the mad shoppers multiply as they suddenly realise the time is a ticking and certain things are permissible, for instance, I will not feel badly about taking out my winter coat, I will also not be angry when we get our first snow. (When the first snow is in November...I am none too pleased!)
I do love the Christmas feeling that encompasses almost every aspect of the city, I love the holiday decorations, I love the holiday cups and specialty drinks that come out at's all such good fun! Speaking of holiday specialties however, I must let you in on some of the limited edition cupcakes at Kickass Cupcakes.  The last Monday of November, Kickass cupcakes hosted their usual happy hour from 5-7.  They were sampling three different kinds of cupcakes:
At the top we have the Yule Nog: Gingerbread cupcake with Brandied Egg Nog icing and a touch of nutmeg. To the right we have the Choc-o-tini: chocolate cupcake with vodka, whipped cream center, godiva liqueur frosting, chocolate shavings and to the left we have the Lemon Fizz: lemon cupcake with a limoncello curd center and meringue on that is a happy hour!
Of course that wasn't enough for my two friends and myself, so we bought two more and were actually given a third as a bonus!

To my utmost excitement, they had 'The Oink', which is a limited edition cucpake: chocolate cupcake with whipped cream center, maple frosting and candied bacon on top. (Oh yea!!!)

Their Great Pumpkin is probably their best cupcake in terms of moistness (sometimes theirs are a little on the dry side, but you forgive them because of their delicious frosting).  The Great Pumpkin is a carrot cake cupcake with nuts and raisins, an amazing cream cheese frosting and candied orange peels on top.

Of course, all of this would have been impossible to digest without some whole milk from a glass bottle which we procurred from the Dairy Bar conveniently located right next door.
Kickass Cupcakes, located in Davis Square is really worth the trip out their all by itself, but it is also important to note that this area is really up and coming in terms of restaurants and cool new boutiques. ENJOY!


  1. the oink sounds like my hero ... and worth the drive from DC. can we plan my next trip around when they'll be available? ...

  2. Definately...although it is a limited edition...I have only seen it once, but a phone call can change that!
