I thought about how to describe this cupcake to you. It’s got spices, but not spicy. It’s got cream cheese, but it’s not tangy. It’s like winter’s morning. Cinnamon, spice, warmth, and every time I eat one I’m imagining it alongside a delicious mug of hot apple cider.
It’s not easy getting your hands on good apple cider in Oz. The girls and I though, found a brilliant market stall at the Newcastle Hunt & Gather markets. He makes the best I’ve ever tasted. We don’t share..ever. We tried that, and two seconds later, we were back in line. I love my kids, but I love my hot apple cider too. He puts a whole cinnamon stick in every cup, and I just wish it would last the whole way home so I could enjoy it on the sofa, with my Uggs on, and a chai cupcake on my plate.
