Instead of orange curd in tonight’s cupcakes, we used mango sorbet. The slight tartness of the sorbet works well with the sweet orange cupcake.
I haven’t read all that many food blogs, having spent the last few years reading news, gadget, and life science weblogs instead. The first I heard of IMBB was on a blog by an expat in Japan (found that via a search for kimono kitsuke), who writes about the minutiae of life in Japan and bakes extraordinary cakes and bread. Her cupcakes looked so enticing that I just had to make some too! Through that blog, I also came across ricebowl journals, specifically targeted at blogging Asians, of which there are many. It’s amazing how many bloggers originate from East and South-East Asia, but live elsewhere.
