Desserts: Smallcakes – a new cupcakery!

Aren’t edible gifts the best, well we received a delicious Ramadan gift, which contained Smallcakes new Saffronic cake and 4 cupcakes.

In the beginning, we couldn’t figure out the flavors of the Saffronic (at the time we did not know what it was called), we guessed orange or orange blossom based on looks, and after tasting: a kunafa layer or aseeda bobar. After further investigation/eating we were stumped by the saffron, loved the combination with pistachio. The sponge is soft and velvety especially the bottom layer, the buttercream is silky smooth and not too heavy or sweet. SAM_1472 The cupcakes are Smallcakes specialty and we were really excited to try them. The Saffronic may have overshadowed the cupcakes by taking a different flavor route. SAM_1466 The birthday cupcake is every eye-catching and was devoured first, vanilla sponge topped with heavy cream and sprinkles. SAM_1464 The peanut butter is quite rich, for some the peanut flavor may be too overpowering since it’s a very in your face cupcake. SAM_1463 The vanilla n chocolate brilliantly executed two classic flavors. Soft vanilla sponge with chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles! SAM_1460 The last cupcake is the caramel crunch, chocolate sponge, salted caramel frosting and topped with salty pretzels. The balance of flavors are really what makes this cupcake stand out (the pretzels don’t hurt). SAM_1477 I’ll end this post on a group photo, I still think that the Saffronic takes the cake (bad pun).
