Back in my teenage years, I was never such a huge fan of Sex and The City like some of my friends were. And since the days of Sex and the City are long gone, I can hardly remember any plots of that TV show. One episode though I will never forget, in which Carrie – sitting outside a small café – tells Miranda about her latest crush: “His name is Adam and I believe him to be very cute.” And while admitting that, she bites into a muffin topped with hot pink icing.
That café is the now famous Magnolia Bakery in New York and what I thought to be a muffin was a cupcake – the beginning of my obsession with them.
I wouldn’t consider myself a cupcake expert but I’m pretty sure that the ones sold at Wir Machen Cupcakes are close to perfection. The tiny shop overwhelms me every time with its super cute decoration, beautifully arranged selection of little things concerning baking and of course their variety of cupcakes! Not only do they go by fancy names (Fat Elvis!) but their combination of flavours and toppings has so much more to offer than just vanilla and chocolate. Besides cupcake classics, the bakers come up with limited editions and seasonal recipes.
Carry your cupcake to the nearby Gärtnerplatz, take a seat there and indulge in the taste of it. And if Adam turns out to be not a cutie at all, your cupcake definitely will be!
