What is the quickest way to a man or woman’s heart? To be honest, you’ve come to the wrong place if you’re looking for those kind of answers, but what we do know about is food. And if someone was to present us with either of these rather smashing desserts we’d be cock-a-hoop.
Chocolate is many people’s weakness (not just children!), as it makes us happy. That’s not opinion, that is science fact. It has tryptophan in its make-up, an amino acid used to create serotonin, a chemical that improves our moods. So not only does it taste delicious, chocolate is also good for your health. (Don’t tell the kids.)
With that in mind, let us prescribe the Cupcake Crush from GOSSIP Café and Desserts for you and your other half this Valentine’s Day. The venue, launched in Sharjah in 2013 by Emirati Dr Shayma Nawaf Fawwaz, now has a branch in Abu Dhabi. It prides itself on blending Emirati passion and flavours into American cuisine.
The special Valentine’s desserts are available between February 9 and 18 and feature the two best-selling flavours of the café’s couture cupcakes. The Red Velvet version is filled with layers of hand-crafted cream cheese mixed with ice cream, then blended with red velvet crumbs. The dark chocolate option is filled with hand-crafted white chocolate then combined with brownie pieces, dark chocolate and white chocolate ice cream before getting a final drizzle of caramel sauce.
Cupcake Crush, say you’ll be ours.
