A few months ago I signed up with a secret shopper agency and what an exciting experience it has been so far. Recently I was phoned up by the company to take up a last minute assignment in a shop that specialises in kitchenware! On top of a set fee I was to be paid, I could also buy anything in the shop which fell under a certain amount and will be fully reimbursed! Paid to shop and get free kitchen equipment on top of it? Sounds like a dream assignment don’t you think.
While in the shop it took a lot of willpower to be sensible and pick out something practical yet fun. I got myself a professional piping set, something I have been eyeing for a few months, and a packet of passion fruit pulp only because I’ve been having intense cravings for passion fruit recently!
Yay new toys! :D
So me being me, I needed to test out my new toys as soon as I got home.
I knew cupcakes had to be made and that the passionfruit pulp needed to be tested out as well, so lo and behold, Passionfruit cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting came to mind! I have to admit this combination of flavours has been playing on my mind since reading about Pierre Herme’s Mogador macarons!
