So one of my friends mentioned how great the bakery at The Fresh Market is. I’m a fan of the place; they have a good selection of produce and I’m a cheerleader for the quality of the meats there. However, I usually ignore the baked goods at grocery stores, as tempting as they are, since I feel like I do enough indulging when I bake my own sweets. There are cakes and other delightful things in the display case that look amazing, but every time I’ve gone to The Fresh Market (henceforth known as TFM) it’s the cupcakes that I can’t ignore. I gave in, for blogging purposes of course, so I could try these cupcakes and channel my inner Cupcake Crusader.

Who ever thought of boiling a can of sweetened condensed milk? I mean, this is science right? Yeah, science! Continue reading
