It is exciting to observe how many young bakers sell their creative pastries at the Colchester Farmers Market.
Zack Kleh, of Colchester, is the owner/baker of Nomz, specializing in cupcakes, muffins and new treats each week.
Jessica Titterton, of UVM, is the owner/baker of Jessica’s Pastries, representing sweet options for those with dietary requirements.
Last week, Myla, a Colchester middle schooler, brought brownies, with or without nuts, to the table.
Please see the Slideshow for the wide variety of these options.
This is a primer using the local area cupcake and bakery professionals to see how our farmers market “go-to” sweet treat vendors compare.
Come next Wednesday to the Colchester Farmers Market and let your sweet tooth decide.
The fluffiest, freshest cupcakes in this area are by Lori’s Cupcakes, from Essex, Vermont. She takes custom orders for any occasion.
They are made every day in three cupcake flavors, Vanilla, Chocolate & Carrot.
Topped with less than a dozen flavored icings Lori calls “Angels” and a handful of sprinkles, chocolates, etc.
Another local favorite for creativity and fun toppings is My Little Cupcake in Essex specializing in mini cupcakes in a pink Barbie world, and Burlington, more of a coffeehouse hangout with treats of all sizes.
If you are buying cupcakes for the Gummi worms or tropical drink flavors, fantastic, but if you want the best all-around dessert, you may want to go the basic, simpler route.
My advice to the new bakers is, everyone starts somewhere, whether it is making brownies and holiday cookies at your parent’s side or going to a culinary school, NECI, for example.
What’s important is to follow your passion and don’t give up on your dream. Even if you’re not sure what your dream is.
Thank you to everyone who has put a smile on all of our faces at the Colchester Farmers Market!
