Flavours of Spain, Part 9: Carajillo (Piping bag FAIL! haha)

We're back to traditional Spanish alcoholic drinks... this time with "Cupcakes de Carajillo"!
But first, I have to apologise for three reasons:

  • For my Piping Bag fail... adding too much liquor to the buttercream made its texture weird and I had to change the tip for a smaller one as I was trying to apply it... nightmare!!
  • For not posting as often as usual... My University lectures are getting more difficult and God knows my German still needs hard work!
  • For posting right now about 100000000000000000 pictures from last weekend... It's not that I want you to know more about me or something like that.... it's just that I travelled to Vienna with my fiancé and the cakes there are AWESOME!!! that's why I can't resist posting a few pics... So... here they are:

(Apfelstrudel... YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Sachertorte!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!)That's me, pretending to be sofisticated at the Sacher Hotel!!!

In Vienna, even McDonald's Cakes look yummy:

Anyway, let's get back to my (disaster) Carajillo Cupcakes.

Carajillo is that drink that old men have in Spain so early in the morning that I think that if any of us did the same, it would cause serious damage to our stomachs.

It's basically Coffee + Liquor (yep, it's the Spanish version of Irish Coffee).

For my cupcakes I used this recipe from GoodFood replacing 1/3 of the coffee with liquor and without the nuts (didn't have any at home).

My mixture ready to be baked:

Result after 20 mins in the oven:

For the Buttercream, I didn't use the one on the Good Food recipe, but did my own one by mixing icing sugar, butter and shortening and, instead of making it creamy by using water, I added 2 tsp of coffee and 1 tsp liquor. Too much liquid, I think... You can see the results:

Well.... that's all for now... hope to be more successful next time!! However, even though they looked horrible... they were DELICIOUUUUUUUUS!!!!!!!

  11. A relationship starts off with kissing first. If you are a good kisser the other person judges you there for your other intimacy skills. This is the situation of a hit or a miss, if you kissed her right then you can make or break the relationship you are going to start with her. I am the best kisser you will ever going to meet and if you do not know how to kiss properly then worry not I will teach you and at the same time will you will have the perfect kiss moment with me.
