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.

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 ?

Buchteln

leave a comment »

Café Hawelka, July 2008 in Vienna, Austria

The famous Buchteln from Café Hawelka, served only after 10:00 PM in this legendary café.

*It was so dark in the café, hence the high ISO noise.

Linzer Torte

with 2 comments

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).
