True Blood-Inspired Cupcakes at The Sweetness Bakeshop on Sunday Only

Opened just a few months ago by a mother/daughter team, the family-run business sells pretty much any unique cake flavors you can think of-- Krispy Kreme bread pudding, anyone?
From the Guayabera (guava cake with guava filling and a cream cheese frosting), to the Campsite (graham cracker bottom with double chocolate cake and a torched marshmallow frosting), they cook up a storm with their creative concoctions. For their adult-friendly treats, they've even created top shelf cupcakes like the Irish Car Bomb (Guinness stout cupcake filled with a Baileys Irish Cream filling and topped with a Baileys/Jameson buttercream) and the Mojito (mint rum cake with a mojito buttercream), for when regular sweets just won't cut it. And at $1 each for each mini treat, they're the cheapest happy hour we've ever been to.
Joined together, they make quite possibly the perfect combination of tart and sweet -- and if you're a messy eater, they'll leave a stain on your teeth, making you resemble your favorite True Blood characters.
We won't know for sure if these cupcakes will be making a comeback after Sunday, so get them while you can. To check availability, just go to their Facebook page or their site -- they update both regularly with the flavors of the day, and always accept requests.
