While I was away, Kat sent me a text message to check if I’d tried the day’s cupcakes at Revel. Apparently they had raspberry mousse and a slight cinnamon flavour. I’d just found a vegan chocolate cookie in Kaiwaka, so wasn’t feeling too homesick for my local cupcakes, but I hope the raspberry ones make another appearance some day when I’m in town.
I’m back at work this week after four weeks off, so thought I’d start the working week slowly with breakfast at my favourite café. I followed up my usual beans-and-coffee with more coffee and a takeaway cupcake. This one was maybe my favourite yet, though was a bit sweet for everyday eating. It was moist, spicy carrot cake with a rich, creamy caramel peanut topping. So good.
