my kitchen: chocolate cupcakes



I have yet to find any cupcakes in Taipei that I like better than the ones that come out of my own oven. Granted it's from a box and frosted out of a can, but I love playing with piping the frosting and making it look fancy. It's actually super easy to do once you have the right tools (I picked up a Wilton 12 Piece Cupcake Decorating Set from City Super at Fuxing Sogo). Look at the difference almost four years makes- my cupcakes from 2006.

Next time I might try sprinkling a teeny bit of sea salt on top and seeing if it tastes as good as sea salt chocolate bars.

Yep, I think it's hard to find them in Taipei. Have you tried http://www.eliyacake.com.tw/Web/Index.asp ?

The walnut/dried longan cupcake/muffin might be something you can't find in LA...
