October is National Cupcake Month, and a few local bakers are making sure it’ll be sweet. Proceeds from cupcakes baked at Lewes bistro Béseme (142 Second St., Lewes, 645-8108) go toward the Starrlight Fund, a non-profit that assists downstate women coping with ovarian cancer. Made from natural and organic ingredients, the cupcakes come in such varieties as mango-coconut with orange cream filling and ginger-lime frosting. Recognition local and national has made Sweet and Sassy Cupcakes (134B E. Main St., Newark, 368-2253) an in-demand commodity across the country. But special treats reward locals. Rotating daily cupcake specials are available only in-store, so grab yourself a white chocolate-pretzel cupcake on Mondays, cinnamon toast-flavored on Tuesday and s’mores cupcakes on Saturdays. At Cupcake Heaven (2117 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 426-0270), desserts of all kinds get condensed into cupcake form. Jonesing for a butterscotch sundae cupcake?
