Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes has been in business for just one year, but has already gathered over three thousand, um, hardcore Facebook fans.  And, you can consider us one of those fans.  Both Nicole and Jeremy Braddock, a husband and wife team, make some of the most amazing cupcakes in Connecticut.  While they might bake their cupcakes out of the John Bale Book Store (they are now the owners!) in Waterbury, they also like to bring the cupcakes to you.  How?  Well, with their food truck of course!  But, look, their cupcakes aren’t like pop or boy band flavors, we are talking genuine hardcore thrash amazing.    Here are just some (see the full list here) of their flavors, many that are even vegan:
