Discover Gourmet Cupcakes in London: A Treat Worth Cheating For
[UPDATED 25/03/2023] I've stayed away from cupcakes for a long time. Maybe it's because of their overdone, commonplace nature or the numerous bad cupcakes out there. Yet, with the all-new Cupcake Heroes at Anges de Sucre, being naughty has never tasted SO GOOD.
Cupcake Heroes: The Ultimate Indulgence
Why are they Cupcake Heroes? Because they literally save you from making a massive mistake on your cheat day by grabbing any ordinary treat. If you're going to cheat and treat yourself, you should ensure you make each naughty calorie count and not put ANYTHING sub-SPECTACULAR past your lips! And if we're going to introduce cupcakes to the Anges de Sucre online bakery menu, then I will ensure they are the most ridiculous cupcakes ever. Enter the Cupcake Hero - soft and fluffy sponge with the lightest and silkiest Swiss Meringue Buttercream made with pure butter, glazed with smooth Belgian chocolate, and topped with added texture and a cheeky mini macaroon or meringue. Being bad never tasted SO GOOD.
Swiss Meringue Buttercream: A Cupcake Frosting Like No Other
What really makes these cupcakes stand out is the balance between the various textures and the delightfully light yet flavoursome frosting. The Swiss Meringue Buttercream frosting is unlike any other - it contains less sugar than ordinary frosting, and is made with whipping meringue with butter and natural flavours such as real fruit purees and nut butters. It's silky, soft, fluffy, and really flavoursome without the tooth-aching generic sweet taste.
Fun, Playful, and Current Flavour Combinations
Of course, the flavour combinations are, in typical Anges style, fun, playful, and current. And my, don't they look S-W-E-E-T! Marcel-at-the-Movies, named after a character in one of my all-time favourite TV shows - Friends (Marcel, Ross' monkey! Remember?!) is a moist banana sponge with sea-salted Swiss Meringue Buttercream, chocolate glaze, and topped with a sea-salted caramel swirl, Cornish fudge brunoise, toffee popcorn, and a mini Cheeky Cazzamella macaroon. Then we have Ferrero's Ferrari - chocolate sponge and Nutella Swiss Meringue Buttercream, topped with crushed and whole hazelnuts and a mini chocolate macaroon.
Well...I could go on and on about how amazing these unique cupcakes are, they are my babies, but you've got to try them to believe it. Trust me, it's the best way to be bad. Ever.
See you Chez Anges on cheat day,
