More in my week-long series, using foreign blogs for summer cupcake ideas. Yesterday, we were speaking Spanish for super cute, beach umbrella cupcakes. Today, we’re working in Dutch to figure out baking cupcakes in sea shells!
Even if you’re land-locked in South Dakota, you can find sea shells for this recipe at cooking shops. Primarily used for dishes like Coquilles Saint-Jacques, leave it to Carola Damen in Boskoop, Netherlands to think to use sea shells in lieu of cupcake wrappers!
And, take note that Carola starts the cupcake by placing an edible “pearl” under the cupcake batter and ends with chocolate sea shell decorations on top. Carola makes use of edible body paint to achieve her silvers and golds.
If anyone speaks Dutch and would care to help us understand even more about the recipe, please let us know.
