Peace, Love & Cupcakes: Woodstock’s Sweetest Treats

Peace, Love & Cupcakes: Woodstock’s Sweetest Treats

All I really want in life is peace, love, and a tie-dye vanilla cupcake with tie-dye buttercream frosting (pictured above). Actually, no. Make that a Blood, Sweat, and Tears cupcake. I love that fudgy brownie cake with a sweet-salty peanut butter swirl, crowned with a swirl of double-fudge frosting.

Wait, I changed my mind. I think I need the Joe Cocker cupcake, the one with vanilla bean butter cake, topped with caramel buttercream, a drizzle of caramel, and sprinkle of sea salt.

Actually, I’ll just take all 3—plus a Pretzel Hippie Chipper Cookie Sandwich on the side, since they’re pretty much my favorite thing ever. They don’t photograph as well as the cupcakes, but imagine the deliciousness 2 chocolate chip-pretzel cookies sandwiching a generous layer of pretzel-peanut butter cream. The whole affair is rolled in chocolate sprinkles. It’s ridiculous.

This little treasure trove of a bake shop is tucked into one of those little alleys that makes the town of Woodstock such a fun place to explore. Follow the cheerful pink signs, and bring back an extra cookie sandwich for me.
