This place has been the buzz among food blogs and foodies and in the local news. The owner, David LaLiberte, had a career in Finance and decided to change gears and open up a cupcake shop. The shop has done so well that they've had to close early and once a week (normally they are open every day). They run out of cupcakes and just can't keep up with demand.

The entrance and the interior are very retro yet modern. Their logo is the edge of a cupcake liner. Very cute. I wish they had a sign above the entrance calling out to people on the street because we almost drove right past the place!
The interior is very nice. There is an open kitchen in the back and you can see the bakers at work. There are two stations with registers in the middle. You can get pre-made cupcakes in different flavors with frostings. Or you can go to the make-your-own cupcake counter and pick your cake and frosting. You can add a variety of things to your frosting; everything from chocolate sprinkles to pop rocks. Lisa and I opted for pre-made chocolate cupcakes.
I had a chocolate cupcake with Oreo frosting. They also had a vanilla version with vanilla oreos. The cupcake was divine. Very rich chocolate cake, a light layer of chocolate ganache and a thick scoop of butter cream frosting with big chunks of Oreos mixed in. Each cupcake comes in it's own little pink tray with a liner, folded napkin and wooden spork. It's much easier eating the cupcake when you have a spork!
Lisa got a chocolate cupcake with chocolate ganache and a big scoop of peanut butter buttercream frosting topped with a peanut butter cup. Heavenly!
The only thing about these cupcakes is that they are super rich. You can't eat more than one at any given time. In fact, I had a hard time eating the one I purchased so I took the rest home with me. Treat has a variety of very cute take-away containers including this adorable take-out box!
If you live in Massachusetts, you MUST make a special trip out to Treat Cupcake Bar. Heck if you live in anywhere in New England, head on over. You will NOT be disappointed.
