Nothing is better than a cupcake in our daily life, simple if you are in a hurry, rich if you feel a little cold in a winter afternoon, with strawberries on a perfect beach in Greece.. The mother of a good friend of mine in Italy used to call "generi di conforto" all those wonderful cakes that you'd bring with you when you go on a trip or just on your sofa.. for me cupcake is a little bit like that.. something good, cute.. that will come with you on your daily life!

hand if you have never told a lie.. and now lift your hand if you have never
eat a lie! In Italy we eat a lot of bugie (lies) for Carnival in February; I use
to buy them almost every day in the bakery near my house. It’s a easy dessert,
very crunchy, just one problem.. when you start eating its hard to stop.
How to do
it? Mix 500g flour, 1/4tsp salt, 2tsp baking powder, 80g caster sugar, 1tsp vanilla, 50g butter,
3tbsp rum and 4 eggs until dough is formed. Refrigerate overnight.
pasta machine roll the dough (everybody for the 18 birthday should get a pasta
machine, very useful and fashion!)
it bit by bit, not all together, start with thick opening (for ex 1) and finish
with thin one (for ex 7), you will have to roll every piece at least 3 times
before getting a compact consistency, don’t add too much flour while doing this
or it will be a flour bugie.
ready for the jacuzzi?
