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.

Fresh Strawberries with Curd Cheese and Sweet Pesto

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 ?

Local bakery, March 2007 in Marseille, France

When visiting France in strawberry season, you will see in every bakery this little piece of heaven (or you just didn’t get there early enough). Try every one until finding your favorite :)
