Sweets for my sweets!
You know how in fairy tales you´re always told not to eat and drink anything on a fairy banquet? And really, you shouldn´t touch fairy food, unless you´ve always dreamed of a lifelong vacation in the fairy realm, of course.
And you need not fear anymore, aimless wanderer! Your journey comes to an end, for you´ve come to the right place! I present you with two truly magical recipes for fairy cakes (cupcakes as normal people call them) to indulge your sweet tooth. I´m sure that not even the fairy king and queen could resist them!
I created two different cupcakes: Double chocolate and red velvet with a heart of cherry. Unfortunately, I had to use the same frosting for both of them. The chocolate ganache that I tried for the red velvet cupcake became so hard after one hour in the fridge before piping, that not even my cat wanted to sniff at it (and normally my cat licks up everything creamy. Bad cat!).
I keep my promises: These cupcakes are ideal for your picnic basket. Just simply prepare them in advance, put them in the fridge for at least four hours and then place them in a box in your basket and only cover them lightly with a paper towel. The frosting should be hard enough to not get damaged by this.
And don´t say that I didn´t warn you before: You might still get abducted by greedy fairies….muahahaha!
