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.

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.

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….

Erdbeercremeschnitte – Strawberry Cream Slice

leave a comment »

Café Konditorei Zauner, June 2008 in Bad Ischl, Austria

The almost 200 year old Café Zauner is SO famous going without introductions. Not only for the noble ambiance , their food is extremely good. Why did I say “food” ? Because even their breakfast ham and eggs is very tasty.

But, their cremeschnitte is definitely THE best I’ve ever had in Austria. (Well, I’ve already tried cremeschnitten in quite a number of famous pastry shops and cafés in Austria.)

Cremeschnitte is a cream slice similar to the French “mille-feuille” ( a thousand layers), believed to be originally from Hungary.

*Forgive me for being so emotional in this post. I’m really crazy about this pastry shop. Being in the beautiful imperial spa town Bad Ischl, sitting in nicely preserved historical tea rooms, and enjoying delicious desserts…, what’s better than that ?
