Sweet Tooth Boston

Bakeries too often make their cupcakes all about elaborate decorations. The actual cake, meanwhile, is a dry, disappointing afterthought. That’s not the case at Sweet Tooth, where fluffy, super-moist cupcakes are more than a match for the rich pompadours of creamy frosting that crown them. The chocolate-ganache-topped Boston Cream, in particular, is a tasty twist on an iconic local treat.
