Groom-to-be: My love is like a Lyndell’s cupcake

Somerville residents Jay Bell and Robin Rubenstein went for cupcakes on their first date in May 2007.
Then they discovered Lyndell’s and became regulars there. Cupcakes have since become a special part of their lives.

As they walked past their favorite bakery one recent Saturday, imagine Robin’s surprise when she saw a marriage proposal -- “Will you marry me Robin?” - written across six cupcakes in the display window.

After Robin read the cupcakes, Jay led her inside, knelt down on one knee and proposed to her.

Lyndell’s staff and customers applauded as Robin accepted and Jay slipped a diamond ring on her finger.
