I was disappointed with Sweet. I checked reviews in Boston for cupcakes for my friend's birthday and Sweet had mixed reviews. I decided to check it out and was thoroughly disappointed. The negative reviews were right. Namely, Sweet's red velvet is NOT red velvet. It was very bland. In fact, all of the cupcakes were bland (I tried 6 different ones). The cupcakes were small, dry (you would want them moist obviously) and expensive ($3 per cupcake). Honestly, I feel like I could have made better cupcakes from a box. Also, there was way too much frosting. The only thing I liked about my experience was the box that the cupcakes came in. Other than that, I would suggest trying another cupcake business like Party Favors in Coolidge Corner. They are bigger and better by far.
I love Sweet. Who doesn't love Sweet? You can't hate on delicious cupcakes. But I ran into some frustrations with delivery, and wanted to give you the info, Dear Reader, because knowing is half the battle. Delivery info not on their website: 1. The dozen minimum for delivery applies to big cupcakes only. There's a 20 minimum for mini cupcakes. 2. They don't make filled cupcakes in mini form. I guess I should have realized this ahead of time, but not often working in the medium of cupcake I have no idea how easy/hard it is to fill a mini cupcake. (that's not about delivery, but good to know anyway.) 3. They deliver within a window of time. Like the cable guy. To be fair, their business is not delivery, but cupcakes. I'll definitely order from Sweet again (my co-workers would have my head if I didn't) but I'll use RunMyErrand instead.
