-- The Chocolate Truffle on Thompson Street in Winchester now offers cupcakes under the brand Boston Cupcake Girl; cupcakes which mirror The Chocolate Truffle’s award winning and locally made hand dipped truffle and chocolate flavors.
When husband and wife team Erin Calvo-Bacci and Carlo Bacci noticed the cupcake craze was continuing to grow they thought it would be a good time to diversify their offerings. The Winchester store was chosen as the launch for Boston Cupcake Girl because of its central location. The Center is walking distance to schools, churches and so many other local businesses that bring people to Winchester and the proximity to Boston makes downtown Winchester a sought out destination. The store is located at 18 Thompson Street which is off of Main Street, just a few stores down from Starbucks. The location has the right mix of foot traffic and car traffic to offer the sweet treats in addition to their chocolates and truffles for those looking to indulge.
The cupcakes are made by the talented staff of Bacci Chocolate Design at their facility in Swampscott and then delivered daily to the store. “This location is the best to test what the market demand is for cupcakes,” said company co-owner Carlo Bacci.
The Winchester location is open Tuesday through Sunday and will feature cupcakes delivered from their manufacturing facility daily and they will take special occasion orders for all events.
The launch was soft, but word has spread quickly with the number of customers coming in to purchase cupcakes which are now the talk of the town. “You’re cupcakes are the best I ever tasted! I was only going to eat half of the salted chocolate caramel cupcake, but I could not resist and went back and ate the other half. They are so delicious! My daughter responded ‘oh my God, these are so good.’ I will share my delight,” said customer and local resident Liz Warrick.
Bacci Chocolate design has won awards for their chocolates and truffles and plans to take some of their most popular creations and offer them in cupcake form such as Salt Caramel, Limoncello, Sam Adams, Red Wine and Toffee to name a few. Names will be tweaked to reflect the Boston Theme; Green Monsta, Boston Laga, Phantom Pinot Noir, North End Cannoli, Southie Surprise and Nonno’s Limoncello to name a few. After all these are Boston Cupcake Girl; Sugar, Spice & Everything Wicked Nice.
