Cupcakes a la mode

Photo The Sweet Tooth Fairy


When I was a little girl growing up in New Zealand my nana who owned a bakery made the most fabulous cupcakes including fairy cakes - you know the ones that have jam and cream in the middle and wings perched on top then dusted with fairy dust which is sometimes referred to as icing sugar.

Yesterday I discovered that cupcakes are the latest fashionable gateau in Paris so I am now thinking about bringing Nan to France but feel at 87 it maybe a bit much and I am not sure if she will keep up with the demand.

This is a video about cupcakes...

What more can I say except Nan you were ahead of your time!

  1. It's amazing and wonderful how the humble cupcake has suddenly reappeared and has become the cake of the moment. We have an Italian neighbour who is working her way through 500 Cupcakes (Fergall Connolly) and presents us with a sample of her latest recipe each week - I dread when she reaches No. 500!

  6. This is a bit off topic, although I'm obsessed with cupcakes and those look great- anyway you have a shop! and I want that pink/ red bed. However I don't have anywhere to put it yet- will definitely keep an eye on the shop for when I do though!

  7. Thank you so much for visiting my blog & leaving a comment. It means the world to me that you have taken the time to stop and write a little something. I think your French blog is absolutely fabulous - just as your blog header states. I look forward to visiting again & again. BTW, my Nana made fairy cakes too - I miss them & I miss her. Thank you for the fond memories. Lee :)
