Build Your Own Cupcake: Chocolate Cupcake, Maltesers, Caramel Popcorn and a Shot of Baileys
Buttercream Abuja happens to be the first vendor I tried at the festival. While everyone made a beeline to Cocktailville n Chops, I decided to start off sweet. One of the things that drew me to Buttercream’s stand was the giant pink balloon arch. It was so cute!
The owners were especially friendly, offering me a bit of their Nutella Banana Bread as a sample. It was absolutely delicious. That’s a lot coming from me because I would usually never put banana bread in my mouth.
I had the option of having a regular cupcake and building my own personalised treat. I decided to go with the latter. A chocolate cupcake, Maltesers, Caramel popcorn and shot of Baileys later, I was in my happy place.
Biting into the cupcake, I felt like I was biting into a fresh cloud. It was fluffy, moist and its sweetness was thoroughly balanced. The creaminess of the Baileys complimented the taste of the chocolate so well while the Maltesers and Caramel popcorn added a bit of crunch to the smooth, fluffy texture. Overall, this was a win.
I absolutely loved them! Between their amazing customer service and the even more amazing cupcake, I can’t decide what got me the most. Would recommend to everyone I’ve ever met.
Cookies and Cream Yoghurt, Cashews and Cookies (Toppings)
I visited the Yogurberry stand a bit late, so they’d run out of a couple of froyo flavours. Bummer! I feel like the vendor understood my pain because he looked sadder than I was telling me they only had a few flavours left. Of the ones available, the Cookies & Cream caught my fancy so I decided to try that out. For the toppings, I went with cashew nuts and chocolate chip cookies. The game was set.
The yoghurt was a flavour overload! The cashews provided a twist to the sweetness of the yoghurt and cookies. I have a sweet tooth but I don’t particularly fancy overwhelmingly sweet treats. This frozen treat kept its sugar levels friendly. On the matter of texture, the yoghurt was smooth and silky. I really enjoyed eating this.
Yogurberry is doing an amazing job with frozen yoghurts. Unfortunately, they don’t have branches in Lagos so I can’t pop in at will.
