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.

Heidelbeer Topfen Schokolade Cupcake

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.

Wagashi

leave a comment »

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.

Fresh Strawberries with Curd Cheese and Sweet Pesto

leave a comment »

Urania, February 2009 in Vienna, Austria

This is a café restaurant at the Donaukanal. The view is great, the interior is nice, and “fresh strawberries with Austrian Topfen and basil pesto” sounds and looks interesting, but the dish tastes somehow a tad…boring? Maybe because it’s not strawberry season….
