Silver Winner Layers Cakes

Bronze Winner Little Red Kitsch’n, Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market

Coconut, sprinkles, sparkles, icing and gumdrops equal a cupcake overload. Locally owned Susie’s Shortbreads is a vision of everything a sweet shop should be, from the striped pink awning to its checkerboard floor. Your sweet tooth will go wild for their 100-plus kinds of cupcakes. Try red velvet for your desert date, lemon zinger for a summer picnic or a Susie’s classic vanilla with soft pink icing just because. And there’s real butter in every recipe. This Halifax cupcake castle prides itself in a handmade product, with ingredients you never have to Google.
