My first batch of muffins, it was on 2009. It’s one of my former colleagues and friends who had introduced me to this home made dessert. Since I haven’t stopped trying to improve and innovate it. Spun almonds, hazelnuts crushed, with a heart of Nutella, strawberry jam, chestnut jam; sprinkled coconut, chocolate chips, with pieces of banana, etc.
And now for some weeks, I try to make cupcakes. Oh yes, these little cakes as good as cute … I’m still looking for the right recipe for the frosting while maintaining a well-balanced taste with cake (I used not to let nature). But before reaching the perfect match, I bought some essential accessories: trays with colors and decorative sugar. I am not yet satisfied with the recipe but I think I’m on the right track about the presentation, isn’t it ? And besides, if you have any tips or suggestions to me, I’m interested!
Where do I buy all these pretty things? I had some difficulty finding my kitchen stuff and then I stepped inMora (13 rue Montmartre – 75001 Paris). A true treasure trove. And the Halles district is full of good places, I discovered Hema (118 Rambuteau Street – 75001 Paris) where now I wander when I don’t have time or opportunity to go to Ikea.
