Every weekend is different, and this Friday I left work to head for Mosque Kitchen up in old town. I used to go to Mosque Kitchen every Monday for lunch, so I broke routine by starting my weekend there instead. I always order the dahl curry and then sit outside beneath the gazebo. This Friday I was eavesdropping on the various Fringe performers who were also there for a paper plated curry. Two American strangers were talking about their acts together, one I heard was a pianist. He had longish grey hair and large glasses. To my left, there was a group of well dressed (hipsters) with their instruments crowded round a small table. They were debating which Mosque Kitchen was actually the original.
Edinburgh is absolutely buzzing just now – there are thousands and thousands of people on the streets. I’ve got my first show booked next week, I’ll be going to see Limbo. I have been interviewing performers over the last few weeks for work however. Everyone is so diverse! After my curry I picked up an ice-cream (nutella and breadcrumb flavour) on the way home and then got started on my cupcakes.
I saw these cupcakes on Pinterest and thought I’d give them a go. They were easy enough to make but if I’m honest I’ll be using my own cake and icing base if I make them again in future. The sponge was a bit denser than I like and the icing not thick enough. I love the idea though!
I do love sangria however, so I may have been drinking some of that while baking! Here’s the link to the original recipe.
