Sugar + Sunshine Bakery

If you haven't done so already, be sure to visit Sugar + Sunshine Bakery on Market Street in Plainsboro. Owners Gigi Burton and her husband Ray opened the shop in April 2008. They've built a loyal following — and a stack of accolades from the food press as well, including being selected best of the best by New Jersey Life magazine in their Best Bakeries category.

We can't say enough good things about their delicious collection of cupcakes, which are made daily with all-natural ingredients. Pete Genovese of The Star-Ledger wrote that he had "found chocolate cupcake nirvana." There are no preservatives and no artificial ingredients in any of Sugar + Sunshine's desserts. Everything is made from scratch in small batches in their on-site kitchen. In addition to their extensive variety of cupcakes, they have cakes, pies, cookies, brownies and more. Beverages include Small World coffee, teas, made-to-order hot chocolate and cold drinks without high fructose corn syrup.

You can check out their website, but we recommend going right over to the Village Center to see for yourself. (You can always join your neighbors later on the Loop Road to walk off those cupcakes.)
