Personal dessert portions haven’t always been around. Before the
invention of the cupcake baking-tray, individual desserts had to be MacGuyvered
either by inventive use of hammers, or by baking full-sized cakes and shrinking
them in the tumble-dryer. Appreciate the small things in life and pay R80 for
nine love-themed cupcakes or whoopie cookies from Zabad Food Boutique at Cape
A brand new kid on the cupcake-block, the dedicated connoisseurs of confectionary at the Cape Quarter’s shiny and new Zabad Food Boutique pride themselves on offering a stunning and delicious array of sugary delicacies. Handcrafting cookies, cupcakes and confections with a skill second to none, it’s no wonder they’re already gaining a reputation amongst Cape Town’s sweet-toothed for being the go-to bakers for bite-sized treats.Considering clichés are cliché and giving roses and chocolate is a passé way to show your Valentine’s flavoured affection, the masterful bakers at Zabad are offering a tastier way to demonstrate your dedication. With nine love-themed cupcakes, baked to perfection and with a cake-to-icing ratio that will leave you singing mathematically-precise hallelujahs, artfully arranged in a box, you can show your sweetie just how sweet you are on them. If you’re of the opinion that cupcakes are just for birthday parties, go the slightly more unconventional route with nine whoopie cookies – sugary filling crammed between two cookies. In romantically themed wrappings and tasty enough to have even the most savoury-loving sourpuss wiping away drool, Zabad’s love themed confectionaries are the perfect gift for the friend you call snoochypoo.
