Chilli-Choc

leave a comment »

Offered by Australia’s Cupcake Bakery, the Chilli-Choc cupcake is a striking sight in rows of delicious sweets. While not the first place to create such a combination, the Cupcake Bakery does a great job of ensuring the flavors all shine with every bite.

As you bite into it, you get the lusciousness of the chocolate buttercream and the supremely moist cake. The bonus arrives as you swallow and the heat of the chilli comes forward and creates the fantastic sweet and spicy combination you enjoy with this cupcake.

The Cupcake Bakery offers "cupcakelicious" locations in Sydney and Melbourne.

Baba au Rhum

leave a comment »

Sometimes called Rum Baba, this pastry was invented in France during the early 19th Century. Taking a cake similar to the Eastern European babka, the “baba” is then soaked in rum. The result is a unique mix of flavors which makes it such a stimulating dessert for the taste buds.

Commonly topped or filled with whipped cream, the treat is both sweet and potent – depending on how well the cake absorbs the rum.

This Baba au Rhum is offered by C's in Bacolod City, Philippines.
