Cupcakes&thecity As I always say, you can live in Geneva for decades and still be surprised to find out things or places that curiously have been there for ages but that for some reason you have missed.

That is the case of the Cupcakes & The City, How did I missed this before? Probably because of it’s discrete location in the Eaux-Vives Cartier. Still I was very happy when tasting some of their fabulous creations, they do also specialized in Personalized Cakes and Cheese Cakes (Citron and Oreo)….

They have a great number of flavors and they mix the american concept with a French flair, specially in the frosting  so they will please all crowds even those picky ones!

The Red Velvet is impeccably executed and the ‘Carambar’ (Salty Caramel) is very tasty and technically remarkable. They are all Good!!

Cupcakes & The City also offers a very nice and fun ‘Cupcake Atelier’ which does not focus on learning cooking techniques but on spending a pleasant time playing with Pate d’Amande, candy, sugar and somebody special of your choice. It can be ‘Kids’ or Adults only, minumin a group of 2. You have to book in advance, it is possible on Tuesdays and Satrudays…

So I took my favorite Kid! Vanessa (She is kind of a pastry expert herself)  to try this Atelier (J is my favorite baby!!) and we had a super Girl’s afternoon. The owner herself host it, she is very nice and the service is very ‘personal’…
