NoRa's Cupcake Company, MiddleTown, CT

 

Not only do they have really tasting cupcakes, the inside of their shop reminded me of something you would see in New York City.  The Cupcakes were used with top of the line ingredients, and unique variety to choose from.  NoRa's Cupcake Company also has a Cupcake truck that you can go onto their facebook and see where they are headed.  Zoe's favorite part and a Must See when you visit is the window where you can watch all their highly skilled bakers at work. We had the pleasure to meet with Ryan who recommended the Peanut butter cupcake.

Cutie Pies, Thomaston, Connecticut

 

Cutie Pies was the perfect name for the Cutie Pie Bakery, with a vast verity of cupcakes to taste, you can never target a favorite. Walking into cuties pies is an experience in itself, not only are you entering the world of cupcakes, but getting the true family welcoming once you walk in. The owners of the bakery welcomed us with big smiles, and you can see the passion that they have for baking, as Zoe stated, "Inspiring".   We were given a behind the scenes tour, along with some great tid bits of information on the business.   This is a must visit.

First Act Bakery, Torrington, Connecticut

 

First Act Bakery Zoe's HomeTown, for a bakery that has only been open for abou 8 months they are showing that they have what it takes to be in the baking "Game". With a selection of 4 cupcakes to try, they didn't play it safe with the normal cupcakes, which was impressive.   First Act Bakery also allowed Zoe to interview with the Register Citizen with Jenny, which made her day.  Old style type bakery, with a young style kick.

Cake Gypsy is a fun and cute place.  When you first walk in your eye's will expand from the amazing color of their store, as you take your next step you get hit by the sugary goodness of the Cupcakes.  Their display is 2nd to known, and their flavor selection is HUGE.   Besides Cupcakes, they custom cakes, and sell fudge among other things.  Another special part is this bakery also sells Doggie Cupcakes for the area, and donates are of the proceeds.
