WORLD CUPcakes!

That's right people! Cupcaker extraordinaire, Kim, just got her vuvuzela on and has the sweet pics to show it. It would appear that cupcakes have some big time international appeal. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the cupcakes of South Africa!



First stop: Tasha's in Joburg. What better way to celebrate after the Ghana match than with a deeeelicious Red Velvet? Ahhh, like a little taste of home.

Speaking of home...



USA! USA! USA!

Back to the cupcakes.



You know our girl Kim gets the Royale treatment wherever she goes. This here is the head pastry chef at the Mount Nelson in Cape Town, personally serving up some scrumptious lemon cupcakes fresh from the oven for high tea. That's right. High tea. Not to be confused with Hi-C. Or 5 Alive.

So, how did these lemon lovelies match up in a head to head contest with our April Cupcake of the Month, Lemon Mascarpone? It was close, but you just can't beat that creamy mascarpone goodness. Royale wins!



USA! USA! USA!

Alright, alright. Back to the cupcakes.



Here's a sweet peek at the ooey-gooey-drippy-goodness of the cupcakes at a seaside bakery on the way to Cape of Good Hope. With their decadent icings and deliciously fudgy aromas, this batch was particularly difficult to keep from the hippos.



Who you callin' hippo? It's all fun and games until someone loses a cupcake.
