No one can be surly when they’re eating a cupcake. That’s why Morgantown is a happier place than it was before The Cupcakerie opened in 2011. The little happiness factory on Willey Street dominates this BOM category year after year.

The Cupcakerie offers up its mood-lifting cakes in mini, regular, and jumbo sizes topped with expert whorls of icing and cheery decorations. There are so many flavor combinations, they come in nine collections, including gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan options. — PK
