The truck, delivering some sweet treats!

Delicious Homemade Treats, Frosted to Order!

Welcome! I am Larry DeNorio and I run The Cupcake Brake, a mobile cupcake truck serving the Hartford, Connecticut area. Our cupcakes are baked daily with the best quality local ingredients available. With a variety of frostings and fillings to choose from, you can customize your cupcake your way.

Check out our menu and schedule for times when the truck will be braking near you. If you feel the craving and we're not around, just place an order and we will deliver the treats directly to you. You can keep tabs on the truck by following us on Facebook, Twitter, through email (sign up on the right side of the page), or right here on our blog.

For general comments and questions, we can be reached through email.

Special Announcement Larry and Tim have decided to part ways and are closing up shop for Take a Brake Bakery and The Pie Brake. Larry will be refocusing all his energies into The Cupcake Brake, which will continue to operate as it has from day one. Larry looks forward to providing his customers with the best cupcake experience possible, continuing to serve the Hartford area with the fresh, delectable, and utterly irresistable pastries they've come to expect from The Cupcake Brake. Hope to see you at the next stop!
