KickAss Cupcakes (Review)

Yesterday we went to Boston for the day.  I love Boston, probably more than any other city in the U.S. That might just be because I grew up going to Boston often.  Sadly thought I haven’t really been to Boston much since being diagnosed so I had NO clue what my options were for gluten-free, except of course P.F. Chang’s (see review here).  On Tuesday I posted on Twitter if anyone had suggestions for a gluten-free bakery or cupcakery (I saw this term in DC and loved it! Thankfully I got a response and it was the one that I came across while searching online – Kickass Cupcakes – Boston’s Best All Natural Sweet Cupcakes.

After our very tasty dinner at P. F. Chang’s we got on the red line and headed to Davis Square in Somerville (.  Finally a cupcakery that isn’t either pink, white and brown or blue, white and brown.  This place was different…red and black!  We walked into the little shop and found three different gluten-free options: Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting, Vanilla Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting and a Mojito Cupcake.

Kickass Cupcakes is mostly regular cupcakes with a large variety of flavors and limited edition cupcakes.  For example yesterday we saw a root beer float cupcake and a green monster themed cupcake (chocolate cupcake with green frosting!). I think fairly recently they started to offer gluten-free options. I’m sure the regular cupcakes really do KickAss, however the gluten-free cupcake didn’t exactly KickAss…don’t get me wrong it was very tasty and the sweet frosting was a perfect balance with the cupcake, but I wasn’t “wow’ed” by them.

I chose the vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting with sprinkles. The cupcake its self seemed to be a little over cooked but it isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  I have definitely had better cupcakes and even made more moist cupcakes but I would try them again in the future for sure.  I know gluten-free baked goods can be a bit tricky especially with getting the right texture and making sure they aren’t even the slightest bit over cooked.

Give KickAss Cupcakes a try – Gluten-Free or Regular, I think it’s worth it.

  1. I went to Tufts so this is my old hood, but I’ve never been to Kickass Cupcakes…good to know what you thought! Maybe they’ll read this and work on their recipes…
