Earlier in the week, we asked about where to find the best cupcakes around, and when the polls closed at 9 a.m. Friday, MacDougall's Irish Victory Cakes had lived up to their name. The Malvern-based company that travels to local farmers markets and other events claimed 60 percent of the vote, beating out runner-up Dixie Picnic's trademarked "upcakes," which drew 16 percent.
Reader andy davitt was responsible for getting MacDougall's on the ballot, posting:
MacDougall's Irish Victory cakes are great!
A comment from Maureen Capobianco backed Dia Dolce—another traveling vendor who was added to the poll—but expressed an affinity for MacDougall's, too:
What about Dia Dolce cupcakes. To me these cupcakes far out rank your poll selections. MacDougall's ranks right up there for me.
Thanks to everyone who voted!
