Diehard cupcake enthusiasts and sweet tooth gluttons everywhere will rejoice after merely stepping inside Sweet Box’s 13th and Pine storefront. This quaint, colorful shop will challenge you to keep your sugar cravings in check - don’t do it. Give in. Sweet Box is a treat which demands to be tasted.
Pastry queen Gretchen Fantini has a long-standing history of making the world’s most delicious sweets. Years ago, Gretchen would go out of her way to an Italian bakery to get a slice of cake for her grandparents almost everyday. Eventually she applied her childhood baking skills toward this tradition, and thus began an affection for confection that led to Sweet Box. After first going mobile with the Sweet Box Cupcake Truck, Gretchen opened the brick and mortar shop which has given Sweet Box a hearty home in Philly’s Midtown/Washington Square West neighborhood.
Once you get over the skies opening up and the angels singing, you’ll realize this bakery is really heaven incarnate. Vibrant cupcakes, crumb cakes, cookies, brownies, and bars scream “eat me” from every corner. Unicorn drop sugar cookies will melt in your mouth like a Lisa Frank coloring book in dessert form. As the sun pours through the shop windows, bathing multi-colored iced cupcakes in a golden glow, every meticulously, hand-decorated morsel begs to be devoured.
Cupcakes typically run around $4.50/piece with deals of four for $15 or six for $23. These tasty treats are perfect for any Memorial Day celebrations - if you promised to bring a dessert, these are sure to clobber the competition. Or, try the Jawn - a sweet bar made of birthday cake batter, chocolate chip cookie dough batter, and buttercream.
