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.

with 2 comments


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.

Blühendes Konfekt

Blühendes Konfekt, April 2009 in Vienna, Austria

Blühendes Konfekt, blooming confection, is a small handmade chocolaterie near the big shopping street Mariahilfer Straße in Vienna.

Fresh flowers, fruits and nuts. Together with chocolate, they create such an exquisite vision and the fragrance of an April garden.

Wagashi

Tenmaya, March 2009 in Vienna, Austria

Wagashi (和菓子) is a traditional Japanese confectionery, often made of red bean paste or/and mochi (rice cake), and served with tea.

These are very basic ones, though.  In Japan there are many wagashi shops that run for generations and make wagashi as a work of art.
