Not all cupcakes are created equal and only a few are actually wicked good. Just ask mother-daughter Tracey Noonan and Danielle Desroches, the brain team behind Wicked Good Cupcakes, a sweet treat confectionary located in Cohasset, Massachusetts. The South Shore bakery has made a name for itself with their now famous “cupcakes in a jar,” which feature layer upon layer of cupcake and frosting goodness all compacted into one delicious Mason jar.

From the originality, artistry and intricacy involved in the details behind each and every cupcake that is made here, Tracey believes it is the care involved that makes the bakery stand out. “It matters to me how each design comes out; it matters to me how the display case looks and it matters to me that people enjoy our cupcakes,” she said. The cupcakes here alone deserve special mention. Flavors abound with creativity, like the Hummingbird, for example. It is made with cinnamon infused pineapple and banana cake, topped with Madagascar Bourbon vanilla cream cheese buttercream frosting, and a fondant star.

There is no surprise how good the Peanut Butter Surprise actually is – a rich chocolaty Devils food chocolate cake with a creamy peanut butter cream cheese center topped with a layer of rich, chocolate ganche frosting and crumbled peanut butter cups. The National Velvet is one of the best takes on red velvet we have sampled—a southern style red velvet cake topped with super rich Madagascar Bourbon vanilla cream cheese buttercream frosting.

Other flavors here include Natalie’s 24-karat (carrot) cake, Cuckoo For Coconut, Really Raspberry, Cookies and Cream, Plain Jane Vanilla, Mocha Madness and Maple French Toast and Bacon. Be sure to also keep an eye out for their Black Forest Cupcake (the region’s only), which should be making its seasonal return to the menu again shortly. Wicked Good Cupcakes is located at 32 Chief Justice Cushing Highway (Route 3A), Cohasset, MA.

Just here to report that after 18 days of Email communication, WickedGoodCupcakes made the problem right this afternoon. UPS took full responsibility this morning via telephone and promised to have the items re-sent with signature required, and WickedGoodCupcakes decided to refund the original amount. Thank you for standing by your product and carrier. I've decided to remove my original review from their site, and update other reviews I have left elsewhere.

I am severely disappointed in Wicked Good Cupcakes. After seeing them on Shark Tank, and having come from my home state, I was eager to try them out. I decided to send a couple cupcakes to my dad as a gift. I paid as much in shipping via UPS as I did for the cupcakes, which was fine and I was happy to pay it. The problem arises when UPS claims they delivered the package to a 6 story apartment building and leaves the package in the main unlocked lobby. You can imagine how many apartments are in this building! Any delivery service with any common sense would have rung the apartment number doorbell to alert a package was delivered. Worst case scenario *should have been* to leave a notice in the mailbox and bring the package back to UPS. My dad could have picked his gift up that very same evening or at worst, the next day. He was not given that opportunity. And now we are told by Wicked Good Cupcakes they do not stand by their choice of delivery service, and UPS says it was left and that there is nothing they are willing to do about the fact I paid $26 and received nothing. When you check the tracking number link, it says it was left at the front door. This is totally irresponsible delivering. I only thank my lucky stars I placed a small order and not a large one. Buyer Beware: A product is only as good as the delivery you do or don't get.
