At Cupcake Charlie's, Their Motto is 'Life is Short, Eat a Cupcake '

By Elisha Neubauer

"Life is Short, Eat a Cupcake," are the words that will welcome you to Cupcake Charlie's upon walking in the door. And trust me, you'll happily oblige. If the bright colors, checkerboard flooring, and retro décor don't grab your attention from the get-go, it's only because your eyes are immediately drawn to the glass cabinet containing row after row of decadent, mouth-watering cupcakes and goodies staring you in the face when you enter.

If there's one thing Cupcake Charlie's knows how to do, it's getting you to lust after a baked good. "Our cupcakes are baked in each shop, fresh every morning," teases Penny Lessa, Owner of Cupcake Charlie's. "A freshly baked cupcake is a beautiful thing!" She's not kidding either...her innovative menu fills the cabinet with such delicacies as divine chocolate, traditional carrot cake, and southern red velvet. "One bite into one of our cupcakes, and you will fall in love," she giggles.

Of course, they do have more to offer than just cupcakes. At Charlie's, they can satisfy just about anyone's sweet tooth. There's something for everyone- including light cakes, ice cream, and vegan options. "We now also offer Premium Soft Serve Ice Cream at all of our shop locations - with two unique products: Cupcake Whirlie (you choose your favorite cupcake and we whirl it into our ice cream) and a Cupcake Hot Fudge Sundae (you choose your favorite cupcake and we turn it into a hot fudge sundae)," states Lessa.

"Some of the other sweet treats you may find during a visit to one of our shops are Cupcake Cookies, Frosting Shots, Cake Pops, Cupcake Jars, Cupcake Push Pops, Whoopie Pies and Cookie Dips!"

In smart business practice, they've made sure nobody is left out. For those who require a dairy-free dessert, the vegan recipes fit that bill, too. "We are very proud to be able to offer a Vegan cupcake option to our customers," Lessa says. "This vegan recipe also fits the needs of those that are dairy free. Our chocolate vegan is one hundred percent from scratch and tastes almost better than our regular recipe. So much so, we have often contemplated switching recipes!" She also mentioned that they are offering Gluten free choices, too.

While Lessa is stationed out of the Plymouth location, she gave us a run-down of the other places you can find Cupcake Charlie's, for when you're on the road. "We are excited to say that we now have seven shop locations," she says proudly. "Five in Massachusetts, one in Rhode Island, and one in Maine."

The locations include, The Mashpee Commons (on Cape Cod), Main St. in Falmouth (Cape Cod), Plymouth, Massachusetts (on the waterfront), Patriot Place in Foxboro, Massachusetts, The Natick Mall in Natick, Massachusetts, on Thames St in the Brick Market Place in Newport, Rhode Island, and at the Kittery Premium Outlets (under the clock tower) in Kittery, Maine.
