"What kind of frosting are you? Baker/owner Ezra Sherman was overheard asking his cupcake customers. Prices range from $3.50 to $4.50. Sweet E's is located at 18 Main Street in Vineyard Haven & 6 South Water Street in Edgartown.  

Good cupcakes are made up of six simple ingredients: Flour, sugar, eggs, vanilla, milk and butter. From there, it’s all about play. Frivolous, sugary fun in small delicate bites and that’s what Sweet E’s offers. From classic vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, to S’mores, Malted Milk, or this lovely Blueberry Pie cupcake. It’s topped with butter cream and plump berries that conceal a smidgen of pie filling. There’s old-fashioned elegance with a twist to this Lilliputian bakery, from its rose-and-gold wallpaper, Édith Piaf singing from the iPod, to Ezra (the baker/owner) in his Red Sox cap. But mostly, it’s simply nice to have a place where choice begins and ends with a good cupcake.
