Subtly spicy ginger cake topped with sweet litchi fruit icing, pink sprinkles, and a sugar flower.
These days it isn’t unusual to find fancy combinations in chocolate truffles or gelato, but cupcake flavours have remained fairly tame by comparison. This fragrant mix of spicy ginger with sweet litchi overtones is lovely. The cake is dense and filled with chewy bits of candied ginger that provide a nice balance to the deliciously smooth litchi icing. And while you relish your pretty little cupcake, you can look out the window and admire Montreal’s glorious Notre Dame Cathedral (which is right next door).
That sounds like a great combination of flavours 🙂
It was delicious. I wish I was in Montreal so I could try it again!
