My sweet tooth is insatiable. I know this, you know this. We all know this. The farmer’s market in Milford had a special treat for me this week in Sweet Tia’s Bakery. It was their first week down at the market, and oh my god. This lady can make a mean cupcake. I purchased a dark chocolate mint cupcake as a small breakfast, and I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved it.
There’s something special about mint baked into a cupcake or even a cookie. It takes on a whole different taste on the tongue that went nicely with the dark chocolate chips she whipped
into her mint frosting on the top of the cupcake itself. That, and if you give me an Andes mint on anything. I’ll be happy. I was on love. I could have tried any number of special and wonderful types of cupcakes, even alcohol infused. I was sorely tempted, but I wasn’t ready to party at nine in the morning. Maybe next time.
What I love most about Sweet Tia’s is her enthusiasm about what she does. It’s absolutely infectious when you’re standing at her stall and listening to her talk about each flavor. She clearly loves baking. I am so glad she decided to join the Milford farmers’ market, and I look forward to seeing her there the rest of the season.
If you can’t make it to the farmer’s market, she ships nationwide and does delivery across three states. You can check out her facebook page and her website for more details. Support your local chefs and craftsmen. They’re making something special just down the road from you every day, like this girl is!
