Is Paris your happy place?   There’s a cupcake for that and it’s my absolute favorite!

The Crème Brûlée Cupcake!

It has a nice golden brown color and it’s topped with a circle of sweet creamy yellow custard. Toasted on top with a torch, the surface and edges of the cake are nice and crispy. I discovered that the custard was actually a filling and not just a topping!

In fact, quite a few cupcakes were filled inside. S’mores!  Dulce the Leche! Raspberry! These cupcakes were made with an original, unique and brilliant recipe by Jodi Bakes.

You gotta try it! You can get yours with or without the diced walnuts on top. The walnuts adds a great taste and crunch to the cake which is loaded with pumpkin flavor! The frosting is sweet and has a wonderful milky vanilla taste. Although its sweet you will still want to eat it all because its such a good combo with the pumpkin cake and walnuts! Plus it’s an original recipe made with care! I can taste it!  You can find these pumpkin bars at Compass cafe. They provide the perfect environment for you to relax, work, have meetings, tutor a child, do homework, read a novel and much more! I work there all the time on my laptop doing a lot of photo and video editing and some writing and wordpressing! Plan your visit one day! The smell of the place is so much like fall with the scent of pumpkin pie candles. The pumpkin bar is the first of many fall treats the cafe is going to have!

The Caribbean Sea Cake

If there is any location thats most desirable on this planet it would be the Caribbean. You’ve seen the commercials, the magazines, your friend’s vacation photos on social media! It’s the happy place and ideal destination for many including myself! The homey creamy vanilla taste of the Caribbean Sea Cake makes you feel like you’re there. Your tastebuds travel straight to paradise when you enjoy a slice. It’s moist, rich in flavor and have layers of fun tropical colors. The first cake was sold out within two hours! My vlog was filmed just an hour after it was made and the cake was halfway finished! I’m not usually a fan of plain or vanilla cakes but I love the richness in flavor and the blissful not overpowering sweetness in the caribbean sea cake. If you are in the New York area, come  grab yourself a slice this week!
