This is my offering for today. In the shop I want to serve some cupcakes with more unusual ingredients. Today I started experimenting with saffron from Kozani. Saffron has a unusual taste but an amazingly beautiful colour!
I was undecided about what flavour frosting I should pair the cake with. Some of my ideas were almond, orange, lemon, pistachio, honey, rose-water or vanilla. I used vanilla but I think some of my other ideas may also have been good. The idea of lemon appeals because of the whole yellow thing that we've got going.
Kozani saffron is a product with protected designation of origin. It's expensive and it's also organic. It can be used as wonderful natural colouring. I think I'd like to make the whole cupcake organic the next time. I didn't do these ones organic but I think it can easily be done.
So again a little tweaking needed but overall a good cake.
