Paris Cupcakes

The heat wave has finally passed and it is now acceptable to cook in my kitchen again! If you follow along The Boss’s “Paris Blog”, you will see here (the Notre Dame house) that the kitchen is about the size of my pinky finger. Without A/C in this joint and the temps hanging out around 98 degrees last week, I had been banned from turning on anything that could possibly create more heat in our house.

But alas, I give you, Paris Cupcakes! The toppers are hand piped using royal icing. What do you think?

I can’t tell you how popular cute little dogs are here in Paris! They are so well behaved too. In fact we have noticed that restaurants are a lot more welcoming to customers with little doggies than they are small children!

Sadly, I have not seen a pink French Poodle in person yet… only in sugar!

I especially love having the little Eiffel Towers in the background of these pictures. It’s fitting because I feel like where ever I am in the city, the tower is lurking somewhere behind!Paris Cupcakes-27

Some of you have emailed and asked how the transition is going. I can tell you that we are in love with it over here, and hopefully you can see that in my cupcakes!

And lastly, I leave you with my Instagram photo of all of the poodles! Are you on Instagram? follow me for sneak peeks of what’s happening in real time in my little kitchen!

So far I have covered the French Poodle and Nutella! Are there any other iconic Paris symbols or flavors you want to see me tackle?

Sooooo cute! You should definitely try to experiment with mixing chocolate with the foie gras flavour ... I tasted that in one of the famous macaron shop and it was delicious!!!! Have you been to Angelina? (famous for true hot chocolate) and you have to check out Gerard Mullot's patisserie... It is very close from where you live (I used to live around the corner). I will try to find time to email more tips from a gourmet who used to live in Paris... If you feel like visiting Prague once you settle down, let me know!!! :)

They are lovely!! I had no idea you had moved to Paris! I thought it was only vacation. I haven't been able to follow my favourite blogs, (and writing on mine) because like you, I moved to another country, England. It's been a few months already, but lots of changes and new things. Now I think we are settled :) I follow you on instagram and saw your Paris' pics, but they never ended, so i got curious hahaha and came here to check out, finally. You set up some great goals and I sincerely hope you will reach them! :) We all share a passion for sugar and know how this is important for us :)
Take care!!

Thanks Karen! We have been across to England a few times already! I'll let you know for the next time, we can trade cupcakes and expat stories!

@Barborkas
Yes I HAVE been to Angelina! The hot chocolate was like nothing I've ever had before! ...and foie gras and chocolate just sounds dangerous!! But I just might give it a try :)

We hope to visit Prauge in the spring! I'll keep in touch!

Ahh, I want to go back to Paris so I can make pretty cupcakes with you in your pinky-sized kitchen! That is crazy that it's been that hot, when my brother and I were over there in July I think it was in the 70's everyday!

Paris Cupcake is everytime chosen as one of the “Ten Cakes Worth Buying” by Bon Appetit! The little Eiffel Towers in the background, gives an eccentric beauty to the cake.
