Happy 4th July to all my American followers and friends! I know we're not quite at the 4th yet but I know lots of you have been celebrating all weekend already! I joined in the fun by heading to Lola's at Selfridges and picking out one of their American flag cupcakes (because after all I am a wannabe American)
I was also keen to try their new flavour of the month since for the past 2 months they have involved alcohol or caffeine - not so fun for all their mormon fans! For July, they are serving the Salted Caramel cupcake and I was definitely impressed! It was a very tasty cupcake, although perhaps the sweet/salt balance wasn't quite right. The caramel cupcake was great and the caramel frosting was delicious with a caramel drizzle, but the only salt I could taste was the actual granules sitting on top of the frosting. I think it would have been better if it had been distributed through the frosting or even the cupcake.
We carried on our 4th July fun by having some amazing pulled pork at Bodean's...if you haven't been there I urge you to go - it's the best!
