When it comes to cupcakes, my palate is quite simple. A moist spongy cake with some sort of whipped cream will reel me in. That is unless someone knew how to make a creme de cassis mousse cupcake. Please contact me if you know how to make this. But by way of garnishing, fondant (or fondit) has always fascinated me. The above Totoro inspired cupcake created by Dagmar of A cat in the kitchen is simply a delight to look at. The actual cake base sounds quite delectable with apples and maple syrup. Should these Totoro cupcakes be accessible in DC Metroland, I would buy them in a heartbeat. Simply because I’m such a sucker for anything Studio Ghibli. On a relevant note, A cat in the kitchen included a recipe, but baking isn’t my forte.
