"Coming from an Italian household, we came home every day from school and there was fresh-baked everything on the table waiting for us. That was a very important part of our daily routine: the baked goods, the cookies. It just made you feel loved."
Sugar Cupcake Truck, the mobile counterpart to the Sugar Bakery in East Haven, is the result of family collaboration: mother Carol Vollono's baking and daughter Brenda DePonte's background in marketing. With the help of another family member's expertise as a retired mailman, the truck serves the greater New Haven area, from Milford to Madison and everywhere in between. The truck offers over 70 different flavors of cupcakes, with a different variety every day. That said, their famous cannoli cupcakes are always on the menu.
