Celebrate Chocolate Cupcake Day with Chocolate Cupcakes on Kent Island

Chocolate cupcakes were born out of a 1796 cookbook called American Cookery. And these days, chocolate cupcakes are setting their own trends. (Just take a look at TikTok) October 18th is National Chocolate Cupcake Day, and we thought we’d let you in on a secret. The chocolate cupcakes on Kent Island are delish! And we’re excited to feature fan-favorite, Fields of Heather Bakery located right in Chester.
