My first introduction to the Mojo was when I saw these lovely ladies compete on the Food Network show "Cupcake Wars." At the time, they did not have a store front, but a few months later I saw in the local newspaper that they had set up shop in my hometown. Being the baking nerd that I am, I had to check them out.
I am SO glad I did. From when I first entered the store, Maureen, the owner, made me feel welcome, almost like an old friend! And on every visit since, she welcomes me by name and knows my girls as well. The other staff that work there are just as friendly and kind, and have a great rapport with all their customers.
And I haven't even mentioned the star of the show yet...the cupcakes!!
They have a rotating menu of cupcake flavors daily. Some flavors are more frequent than others, and they also have a great selection of seasonal cupcakes as well. I have tried many of their flavors so far; their carrot cake is devine. Many times carrot cake can be dry and mealy or overly spiced, but Cupcake Mojo's carrot cake is perfectly moist with a great carrot flavor and just enough cream cheese frosting to compliment the cake, without overpowering. I have also especially enjoyed the seasonal Pumpkin Mousse cupcake (pumpkin anything rocks!), the "Joyous Almond" (their take on the famous candy), and the Apple Cider. They even recently made a "Hurricane Sandy" cupcake, to commemorate the coming hurricane, by topping a chocolate cupcake with a smooth peanut butter butter creme, covering that with more chocolate butter creme, drizzling it with even MORE peanut butter and chocolate, and topping it off with cut up candy bars! Needless to say, I had to partake of this creation (what? I needed the sugar energy to prepare for the storm). I was not disappointed.

Cupcake Mojo also caters and has a party room for birthdays and other events. I even had my daughter's 10th birthday there, where the kids learned how to fill and decorate cupcakes.
So, the next time you are looking for a sweet treat, get your behind over to Weymouth Landing and into Cupcake Mojo!
