Cupcake Courant 

Side Dishes: Farmers-market favorite makes the leap to stores

When Michelle Trudell received an email from a City Market rep with a request to carry her baked goods, she was excited, then worried. The owner of My Little Cupcake, a popular purveyor of the miniature desserts at the Williston and Winooski farmers markets, is also a full-time employee of Dynapower Corporation. “It’s going to get crazy, I think,” she says.

In addition to performing the complicated feat of balancing her day job, weekend market visits and catering, Trudell will start delivering her tiny treats to City Market on Thursday. Since she’s already baking in bulk, the Westford resident also plans to supply Sweet Clover Market in Essex.

Trudell kicks off her relationship with City Market in style this Saturday. A product demo from 3 to 6 p.m. will introduce shoppers to her Vanilla Squared, Chocolate Squared, Red Velvet and lime-based Margarita flavors. Will the former army cook expand further? “I want to get Sweet Clover and City Market down pat first,” she says.
