Ice Cream Filled Cupcakes in the North End Mar 01, 2008
I could never ever say no to a cupcake filled with ice cream--even in the magical land of the North End where there's a perfect sugar-dusted cannoli waiting around every corner. And it's true-- a homemade cannoli would have been much much better. But the cupcakes we got at Trani were definitely enjoyable. We opted for the chocolate cupcakes, one full of chocolate, one full of vanilla softserve, both drizzled with chocolate.

What's kind of strange here is of course the 'injection' of the cupcake with ice cream, which blows the thing apart, and then its ride through the chocolate machine. It's fun to watch but it immediately gives your treat an air of being mass produced...which isn't especially appealing, though the end product is unarguably yummy in a Twinkie kind of way.

I probably won't seek this place out again (with all the other great dessert options in the N End), but it was a fun and yummy experience, if a bit strange.
