Yesterday my boyfriend and I swung by THE best cupcake place in Seoul, Royal Cupcakes. It's located on one of the quiet and charming side streets of Cheongdam-dong. Trust me when I tell you these are the best in Seoul; they're soft, moist and all-american style (no whipped cream here, just all pure sugary, buttery frosting), and I would know a good cupcakes when I find one, believe me! Eating cupcakes is something I love to do - It's just another of the big kid things about me.
While out for cupcakes I was telling my boyfriend what I'd really like for my upcoming birthday is to be able to have a tea party! I'd serve cupcakes (of course!), cheese on cocktail sticks (that's a British thing), triangle sandwiches, plates and plates of crisps, cookies and so many sweeties. There would be brightly colored balloons everywhere.
But since I'm a grown up, living in South Korea as an expat it's just not feasible. I can't invite all the people I know - my friends are now dotted around the world. I won't receive any totally pointless, but amazingly fun presents either. I'll probably never receive a gift in a gigantic box again.
Oh, to be a kid again. How fun it'd be!
So, I guess that's a clue as to why I love cupcakes so much. They take me back and give me comfort from the pangs of nostalgia I get for that time when everything was so simple and easy.
