Cup & Cake – El Raval, Barcelona
Enric Granados, 145
Another cupcakery has opened in upper Raval, Barcelona called Cup & Cake. They are breeding, I could swear it.
The interior of Cup & Cake (a small takeaway) is gleamingly white and the service courtesy of a charming young wench is as smiley as can be.
Cup & Cake serve cupcakes (I shit you not) of a few different types such as Oreo cookie, raspberry and chocolate and Greek yogurt, but they also serve other types of cakes, fresh coffees and hot chocolates.
I – being the Amy Winehouse of sugar – was straight in there with a raspberry and chocolate which looked divine and in fact all was going well: the frosting was creamy and sweet (tick) and the consistency of the sponge was tight and moist, how I like my men (tick), but then I got this horrible chemically aftertaste. I’m guessing it was either food colouring or food flavouring, but I’ve never tasted anything like it before in a cupcake. Grump! And it was going so well.
Anyway, the cupcakes cost €2.50. Maybe I was unlucky, but there was definitely something weird going on in my cupcake. Another partial success.
