There are many great bakeries in southern New England, but the sweetest might just be Sweet Indulgence in Pawtuxet Village, Rhode Island.

Known for its made-from-scratch cupcakes, signature cakes, French macarons, ice cream and hand-dipped confections like chocolate apples, Sweet Indulgence comes across as a bakery that you would see showcased on a television food show and the type of place that wouldn't look out of place in Paris, France. The leisurely pace, properly-sized servings (the French favor taste over quantity), the pink decor and white wrought iron tables, and charming regional wall murals surrounding the pleasant sit-down dining room and ordering area go a long way in creating the authentic European look.

Kerri Fusco, who likes to appropriately go by the name, "Kerri Cupcake," clearly possesses an artistry to her work -- especially with cakes and cupcakes where the balance of tastes has this perfection that you would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. It's not just about avoiding mega doses of crisco oil and other cheap ingredients, but a clear intuition of what makes a baked good taste great.  You just can't teach this stuff; rather, it is deeply embedded in the DNA of a gifted baker like Kerri who clearly works hard and with a passion for her craft. From a simple treat to the complexities of making a wedding or birthday cake, the culinary sights here are memorable and the chance to taste them even better!

While Pawtuxet Village looks nothing like Paris, this charming neighborhood spanning from Cranston to Warwick has a classic New England coastal and historic look that further makes the visit to Sweet Indulgence even that much better. I know we digress here, but after experiencing Sweet Indulgence, stroll around this great walking town and enjoy the water, the park, old homes, and the quaint brick sidewalk streets...

Back to Sweet Indulgence: From the North End of Boston, Massachusetts to the thriving streets of Providence, Rhode Island, I have been to many great, upscale bakeries in southern New England but none quite match up with Sweet Indulgence in my experiences. Savory tastes and a touch of Paris create that effect, no doubt!

Sweet Indulgence is located at 2202 Broad Street, Pawtuxet Village (Cranston), RI. Tel. 401-228-7719. Also, be sure to check out the Sweet Indulgence Facebook Fan Page for updates and some amazing food photos!
