From these fleetingly hot days of summer in Upstate New York, I thought I’d take you on a getaway this week to go baking cupcakes in kitchens in foreign countries. I’ve scouted out the bloggs for the best-looking cupcakes with photo instructions and recipes.
We start our tour with the cutest summer cupcakes on the planet! How creative are these? La Despensa Del Gnomo blog uses the universal image of the drink umbrella with fondants to create beach scenes, from towels to starfish to shovels. The cupcakes are bottomed-off with palm tree wrappers.
Can any of our Spanish-speaking readers act as our translator tour guide? One of the ingredients is that yum word “Nutella.” But just how it fits into the cupcake is the question.
Do take a moment to click on her “cupcakes” category in the blog. One of her recipes is for Papaya cupcakes – another great summer cupcake idea. How fun to wander through foreign kitchens to bring their local flavors to our own!
