Cupcake Yet Again

with 2 comments

Gerstner, January 2011 in Vienna, Austria

Cupcake yet again. Vienna City is in love with cupcakes now, so am I.

Gerstner is one of my favorite pastry shop/café in Vienna and it is also one of the old K&K Hofzuckerbäckerei (appointed Imperial Court Confectioner) of Austria.

The café on the shopping street Kärntner Straße is not very spacious but elegantly decorated in sapphire color and dark wood chair with marble table, and is always, always full of people.

Home, February 2011 in Vienna, Austria

Cupcakes became very popular this year in Vienna. Many pastry shops, even some traditional Viennese Konditorei start to display these colorful little sweet things in their windows.

I got this one in Cup Cakes, a lovely cake shop where you feel the passion of the owner/cake designer immediately after entering. It’s with Heidelbeer (European blueberry) -Topfen cream and chocolate cake.

Kaffee Glockenspiel, September 2008 in Linz, Austria

The most famous cake in the city of Linz is of course the Linzer Torte, a tart made with crumbly pastry base with ground nuts and red current jam filling. It is even named the oldest-known torte or cake in the world (wikipedia).

This Linzer Torte is made by Konditorei Jindrak. Their cakes are available in many bakeries and cafés in Linz. One of them is “Kaffee Glockenspiel” on Linzer Hauptplatz ( main square).
