Chocolate Cupcakes

And you may wonder, what does this cupcake to do with Spanish Cuisine? Well, it happens to be that Jordi Roca from El Celler de Can Roca, second best restaurant in the world according to I don’t know which guide/list and with 3 Michelin Stars, published some time ago in a local Magazine called CUINA, 3 different type of cupcakes’ recipes. Jordi Roca is the desserts’ chef at this restaurant and he has awesome creations which I never tried to reproduce… but this time, when I saw these Chocolate Cupcakes, I couldn’t help it!

El Celler de Can Roca is on my ThingstodobeforeIdie list, and hopefully if this crisis doesn’t go worst, I will go there for one of the lunches of my life just before the summer :D. Because that’s what life is about, isn’t it? Sharing special moments with special people and treasuring those memories so that when life is not that kind with us we can go back to that awesome moments we enjoyed so.

Just in case you wonder about the cupcakes paper, you can find them at Ikea. Lovely colours! The recipe is really easy to follow, however, I made some minor changes but the result was… maybe not a 3 Michellin Star cupcake, but It was good enough for me and my family ;D. I hope you enjoy it too :D.

I have made a research for those of you away from your country (USA) and missing your mom’s, auntie’s, corner shop’s cupcakes and found all these addresses where you can find excellent quality and varied delicious cupcakes in Barcelona!

We all love sometimes to try some food from other cuisines as well, especially when it’s something everyone seem to be crazy about. I tried cupcakes a couple of times but can’t say that they blew my mind away. I can think of a million other better desserts to add up calories:) The cupcake cases are really very cute.

Ah, Ikea – it’s all over the world and we all love it for one reason or another.

I love your photo styling in this post, especially the little carousel.
