Papaya Cupcakes Galore!

By on Friday, July 29th, 2011

Papaya.  I never buy this fruit here in Upstate New York, having convinced myself that to enjoy it, I would need to be somewhere tropical.

Not true, ATC readers! and here are the papaya cupcake recipes to prove it.

Start with Coconut Rice Pudding Stuffed Cupcakes with Ginger Cream Cheese Frosting & Papaya.  A long name for papaya used as a garnish to top off an unusual cupcake.  You’ll also notice that I’m continuing my recent penchant for lime…

Get more adventurous with Papaya Cupcake.  This recipe appears in Spanish, but, if you’re using Google Chrome as your Internet browser, this nifty top bar pops up asking if you want the page translated into English – answer? yes.  The tip on putting a dye tube inside the frosting piping bag to get the beautiful swirls is just OTT.  I discovered La Depensa del Gnomo during my global cupcakes week, and he never fails to impress.

May this inspire you to venture into the land of tropical fruits this summer no matter your climate!

Cupcakes à la clémentine et mousse au chocolat

By on Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Bonjour!  Aujourd’hui, nous sommes a Paris!  Good morning ~ today, we go to Paris.  On our week-long trip abroad for cupcakes, we’ve been to Spain and Holland, and now on to la belle France.

Elo les Cupcakes” is the name of the blog and the recipes range from “cupcakes a la clementine et mousse au chocolat” – we all know “mousse au chocolat” – to “les croquants gingembre et caramel.”

Avec mousse au chocolat!

Just a moment on the “croquants gingembre et caramel” (croquants ginger and caramel).  The flavor ingredients are the crystalized ginger, caramels, and “golden syrup.”  In England, “golden syrup” means the brand Lyle’s.  It is sweeter, thicker, and smoother flowing than natural honey.  It is a processed sugar product.  You can use honey as a direct substitute.

A demain mes amis du cupcake!  Until tomorrow!

Hot Out of the Test Kitchen!

"Strawberry Lime Daiquiri"


Ooooh!  About three weeks into blogging for this site, I finally have my Facebook and Twitter sufficiently loaded with cupcakeries that I’ve scored these yummy photographs from the Little Cake Bakery in Atlanta, Georgia.  These were just uploaded into Facebook in a new album titled “Test Kitchen.”

Who wants to report live on location to our cupcake community whether these cupcakes taste as good as they look and sound?
