Yesterday evening I recieved an email that made my mouth water. It told me and many others that there were going to be LilliMoo cupcakes on the market place in Basel this Friday morning and at least the next two. Happy for my lovely friend Emma and always ready to show my appreciation for her fabulous cooking I took myself for a little break to pick up some ‘essentials’.
At first I walked right past and was worried that she had already sold out and packed up, but a better look and I found her beautiful stall. The Ginger Zing cupcakes had all gone – the ones I had my taste buds prepped for, so I opted for a box of 4. Two Citrus Zing’s, a Velveteen Bourbon and a Bourbon Bloom (vanilla cake with rosewater infused whipped buttercream). I can tell you that half a day later, I only have one cupcake left and I’m saving that for after my dinner.
Always beautifully presented Emma’s stand was very inviting and whilst I was briefly there at her stall, nearly all the cupcakes that were left disappeared. If you missed out this week, make sure you put an alarm on your phone or something to make sure you are there next week. Even better, I overheard customers asking to call in advance to have cakes put to one side until collection.
Here is a little slideshow of Emma’s LilliMoo debut at Marktplatz. I hope you’ve had a relaxing afternoon:
