Cupcake Monday! Limoncello Pipettes & Torched Pear Chips
Cupcake Monday is back after an unscheduled hiatus (ie. I didn't realise it was Monday, I guess holidays easily confuse me). I wanted to kick off the new year with a Swelle favourite, Arthur & Aleksandra and their inventive and wicked cakes.
Let's get right into it because this is torture! Above and below is the "moist orange & lemon sponge, drizzled with orange & lemon syrup. Topped with an indulgent cream cheese frosting and an almond wafer. Served with a pipette of Limoncello." I love lemon. I must have this some day. (I always wonder if Aleksandra eats the smashed ones. If not, I am not above receiving a box of cupcake remains in the post. )
This one just looks so good (not that this differentiates it from the others!). The baked pear chip is so neat and pretty, decorated with edible gold. It's a sticky toffee sponge, topped with a pear-liqueur-infused, cream-cheese frosting. Drizzled with toffee sauce and served with a pipette of pear liqueur. It's best warm. Oooohhhhhh..........
