Methinks this one survived transit much better.
[This was okay, but I prefer the vanilla/lemon over it. Thought there was maybe too much cocoa and too little sweetness, but that could just be because I want stuff to be sweet to the nth degree. There was some filling incorporated and while I thought it was a nice touch, I wasn't really keen on the choice. May have been almond paste or marzipan, I think, and while I like them on prinsesstårta, I would prefer it if they stayed away from chocolate.
No home runs so far, but I will be dropping by again next week. Have already set my sights on the flavors: red velvet and carrot.]
Well, I think one is back at least.
At the exhibit in Waldemarsudde, I was tempted to ignore the wall of Vesalius drawings because similar ones line two of the walls of the Vesalius lecture hall at the Solna campus.
Apparently, they weren't just similar, they were the exact same ones because when classes started last week, the walls were bare.
Not sure if this one has been hanging there all along and I just missed it somehow (not likely though) or if they're returning them one at a time.
Looks like I didn't handle the box carefully enough.
[Thought this was good, but too lemony since I'd ordered a vanilla cupcake. I'm generally not big on the citrusy cakes. Later googling would reveal that they don't offer a plain vanilla flavor, only a vanilla/lemon combo...so suddenly it makes sense. Frosting was cream cheese-based.]
Found out about the first cupcake shop in Sweden while googling on Sunday night. Have been planning to go since Monday, but stuff has gotten in the way.
Since the first class of the day wouldn't start until 1015, I made a beeline for the shop. It's within walking distance of Solna campus.
Was almost late for class because I thought they didn't accept cards and couldn't find an ATM. Priorities! :p
