Geeks and Sweets

Posted on July 21, 2012 AT 11:39am

A geek’s gotta eat, right? Between flipping through comic books and thumbing a controller, the concept of available hands gets a bit complicated (we’re only human after all). Combine this with the trendy cupcake business and we’re all in a hungry conundrum. Instead of struggling with cupcake liners and losing scrumptious crumbs to the floor, Massachusetts’ Wicked Good Cupcakes has created a tasty alternative: cupcakes in a jar.

In a day dedicated to playing some throwback games, like Silent Hill for instance, a professional geek can savor the taste of a moist cupcake for an extended period of time without fiddling with liners, keeping all parts of the cake contained, and having extra layers of frosting to explore. Lasting up to seven days with the assistance of your household fridge, the smallest jar holds about 1 3/4 cupcakes, and the biggest  2 3/4 cupcake. Delivered straight from Wicked Good Cupcake’s store front near Cape Cod, each jar comes with a ribbon and a spoon.

Wicked Good Cupcakes, a dream turned into reality by mother Tracey Noonan and daughter Danielle Desroches, has been a sweet store since the fall of 2011. The team also provides hundreds of yummy treats for events put on by animal community service group MSPCA. A favorite eatery via Greater Boston press, Wicked Good Cupcakes is able to treat the rest of the country to their desserts with their air-tight Mason jars.

The ease of cupcakes in a jar are perfect for the trendy and hungry geek looking to balance both an afternoon of video games and treats. With alternating layers of cake and frosting, each jar comes with sexy tastes good enough to pause Modern Warfare 3 for a bit.

In all kinds of creative flavors, each jar packs a punch of soft and gooey taste. With tastes like Salted Caramel, Carrot Cake, Lemon, and good old Chocolate, someone can’t go wrong in choosing a flavor. In fact, Wicked Good Cupcakes was featured on the news for their Red Velvet cupcake jars after the TSA forbade a woman from bringing the dessert on board; the frosting was deemed suspect.

If you’re feeling the least bit hungry, has prices and shipping information. The business is also on Facebook, and their trend of stuffing cupcakes into jars has also hit Pintrest. Go from seeing them everywhere to hunkering down with a jar while re-watching the Walking Dead series; cupcakes go well with zombies.
