Sweetest things

home again

Vegan desserts at Revel have been particularly good lately. Above is a walnut and rosewater cupcake, enjoyed the day after I got home from travelling last week. It was a rather nice combination of spicy and sweet, cakey and creamy, & it was attractively topped with a big swirl of pink frosting and hundreds & thousands.

Also this weekend, I had a fruit crumble, and chose not to indulge in cookies, peanut butter & chocolate cupcakes, chocolate midnight cake or peanut butter midnight cake, and probably other things I’m forgetting.

On a Saturday morning a little while ago, there was this chocolate fudge torte with chocolate creme and berries:

cake of the day

A story told by text message as I was eating this cake:

Drunk guy walks into Revel, asks, ‘do you guys have food?’ Stares intently at cabinet, gets confused by all the options, leaves swearing.

  1. Yum! I am planning a holiday in Auckland in a few weeks and have been compiling a list of vegan food places to visit, mostly from tips on your blog. Revel cupcakes are top of my must-try list!
