Fresh Market Cupcake Review

We just recently had a Fresh Market open up down the street. I toured the place with my aunt a week or so ago and we were impressed for sure. They have everything in there but I was most impressed by the huge bakery section. They have loaves upon loaves of fresh bread and tons of cakes and pies available whole or by the slice. Their dessert case is a thing of beauty.

I could go on, but I don't think you are really interested. :)


Anyway, I went back today to get some ingredients for the Daring Baker fiasco that is going down tonight.

And that's when I saw them. Cupcakes for 99 cents.

Well... there really is no need to even try to refuse a cupcake at that price.

So I picked one out (the options were this chocolate cake with an Oreo on top or the same chocolate cake with white icing and red and blue sprinkles) and brought it home to share with the brother.

And, you know what, it was okay. I was expecting a dry cake but it really wasn't. It tasted very much like a devil's food cake mix and the icing was very storebought smooth. The overall taste was sweet. And storebought. But in a cake pinch, it will do.

I decided that I was eating it because it was there, but my brother summed it up perfectly. He said "I think I'm doing the same thing. I'm eating it because it's here and I don't feel like driving to Dairy Queen to get something else that is sweet but better."

Here here, little brother.

I just googled Fresh Market. Turns out there's one in the shopping center where the cupcakery is that I'm about to start working at in July! AWESOME!

FreshMarket's bakery really is a thing of beauty. They make fantastic Napoleons that are like eating a meal made of pastry, chocolate, and custard. Check them out sometime.
