The first time I had a cupcake from Cocoa & Fig I was standing on Nicollet Mall with my friend Lisa. I was in heaven. And not just because Lisa is awesome company, but the Cupcake. Was. Amazing. At the time C&F only had a booth at the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market. Now they have a store on the skyway level of the Mall. And that’s spectacular. It means I can get a cupcake nearly every day. I don’t have to wait around for a Thursday. In the summer. And since my birthday unfortunately fell on a Monday this year, I could still get a birthday cupcake. I chose the “Chocolate Chocolate Buttermilk” because, frankly, anything with chocolate in it’s name twice has to be chosen. It was delicious. All four bites of it.
BTW, my friend Chandler did the beautiful illustrations on the Minnesapolis Farmer’s Market website. You can see more of her work here.
