Due to the exceptionally good ice cream at J.P. Licks, you might not have noticed that they actually have other treats as well. A few weeks ago, I found myself in Davis Square, early for an appointment to look at apartments. (That's right, Green Line: come September, I am finally abandoning you for the Red Line. I feel no guilt.) It was a hot day, and the line at J.P. Licks was miraculously non-existent, so I decided to bide my time with some ice cream (mint chip). While paying, I noticed a few giant cupcakes hanging out by the register. I made a mental note to return on a cupcake quest at a later date. I mentioned my find to my fellow cupcake quest co-conspirators.
Julia had finished up her contract at work a few days earlier, but she came in on Monday to meet Joy and me for lunch, bringing with her...cupcakes! From J.P. Licks!

The Verdict: Excellent frosting but mediocre cake. Large, messy, and luxurious. These would probably be good for a birthday party. If you're going to J.P. Licks, though, your primary target should really be the ice cream, because it's just fantastic, especially the monthly special flavors.
