Treat to Try: Pumpkin Cupcakes From Britt’s Sweet Shop
Britt’s Sweet Shop is a home based bakery that opened last November in Hilliard that has been serving up treats at the North Market and Hilliard Farm Market. Owner and baker Brittni McLain specializes in custom cakes and cupcakes but also produces cookies, cake pops and more for weddings, parties and other events.
We tried out a sampling of her seasonal cupcake flavor: Pumpkin with Cream Cheese Frosting and Chopped Walnuts. The cake was fairly light on pumpkin flavoring, opting for more of a buttery vanilla than a strong cinnamon or ginger flavor. The cream cheese frosting was light and airy, giving the whole dessert a flavor very similar to a traditional autumn pumpkin roll. The speciality cupcakes from Britt’s are $1.75 each, but these were dropped off at our office complimentary. Combined with the cool weather we’re experiencing, these cupcakes certainly got me in the mood for the Circleville Pumpkin Show already.
