Weekend edition: Sunday sweetness

I've been spending too much money at Cocoa and Fig the past couple weeks. Their new retail location just opened up in Gavidae Commons in Minneapolis, which is only one block from where I work. I walk by the adorable store every morning and everything looks so delicious and pretty. I end up buying too many sweets and giving them away. Don't worry, I taste a few things, too.

Below are cake ball lollipops, macarons, a vanilla cupcake with chocolate buttercream and a carrot cake cookie sandwich.


  1. Oh, goodness. I LOVE Cocoa and Fig. I just tried one of their black velvet cupcakes, and it was AMAZING. I'm definitely going back this week - can you believe I've never had a macaron?

  2. I actually just had my first macaron this week. And I'm not sure how much I like them...they are made with almonds...or almond flour so they have a very different taste. They are very light and airy. Let me know what you think if you try one!

  3. I went twice last week and enjoyed every bite and every calorie (even if I really shouldn't have!). Delicious+really cute=hard to resist.
