Ever since we saw Carrie walking out Magnolia Bakery in New York several times in Sex & The City, sinning from your healthy diet and eating a cupcake was officially fashionable…. The cupcake hype could not stay away from Barcelona and although the good old plain “Madalena” is still the most common find in a bakery, more and more colourful cupcake shops are popping up! My favourite one is hidden in Born. Although the street might not seem very appealing to extend your walk to, it is worth the extra mile… Because in Portal Nou street you will find Barcelona’s finest cupcake shop!
According to Lolita Bakery “a cupcake a day keeps the doctor away”. Although I am not sure that a daily helping of this pastry will do my health any good, it sure does put a smile on my face. Pass by and try to choose between the many delicious flavours such as Tiramisu, Vanilla-Mango, Crunch Caramel or my own all time favourite; Red Velvet! Having difficulties to decide? The friendly staff gladly shares some ingredients and tasty tips to make sure you choose the right one. But really….with these cupcakes, you can never go wrong!
