Funfetti Cupcakes w/ Zoë Fellows & Ines Leroy

Funfetti Cupcakes I

Ines Leroy & Zoë Fellows

This summer, Zoë, Ines and I decided to make the Funfetti Cupcakes which Zoella had uploaded on her YouTube channel. This was a nice activity to make amongst friends during a warm summer Friday night. And I took some pictures to show you.

We used a premixed bag for cupcakes and added butter, milk and eggs. The mix we used is called Hema Cupcake Mix and is from… well, HEMA.

This was the result: perfect cupcakes, cooling before being frosted.

Happy and satisfied (food)bloggers!

Some cupcakes didn’t fit into the muffin molds so we had to bake them separately and this is the result: expanded cupcakes to the rescue! Eastern Season in Cupcake World! LOL

And with the frosting! The frosting was liquidy, but we know why. We used liquid butter (from a bottle) instead of classic butter. The frosting had that melted effect you get when you try to make frosting out of melted ingredients. The cupcakes were delicious, though, and looked pretty cute!

We took our first polaroid selfie with Zoë’s polaroid camera, and I had to take a picture of this selfie to be sure it gets never lost.

Obviously, after putting some effort in making these cupcakes, I had to try the cupcakes. I decided to eat the expanded one. 🙂 They were delicious! We baked them a little longer than the packaging advised and were moist as f—! BIG WIN!

If you’re curious in knowing more about these girls here, check their blogs out: Zoë’s Blog, Ines’ Blog, and check Zoella’s YT channel for the exact recipe if you’d like to make them yourself. We obviously did not follow the recipe 100%, we followed the packaging instructions and used ingredients we found in the supermarket rather than all the ingredients Zoella used.

Djemaa El Fna 2015: Celebrating Moroccan Culture

Whether it’s a food truck festival or just a food market, I love them, because I love food. A couple of weeks ago was the last week of Park Spoor Oost in Antwerp. Park Spoor Oost used to be a rail station that wasn’t available to the people but was used for railway purposes from the port of Antwerp. It closed down years ago and that huge space was left empty. This summer they decide to organize food truck festivals, fun fairs, bars, and much more on Park Spoor Oost, and one of them was Djemaa El Fna.

Djemaa El Fna IDjemaa El Fna is the famous market place in Marrakesh, that is why the organizers decided to call the market like that because it reminded them of the food stands in Morocco. It gave it a try and here are some pictures I want to share with you.

Djemaa El Fna IIWe ate something from this place in Antwerp called Fez. I know Fez, I have been there, maybe 10 years ago, and I didn’t like it. But this time, they surprised me. The food was delicious! I had a Chicken Briwat (with powdered sugar on top) and small salads: red bell pepper salad, white cabbage salad and couscous salad, each and every salad was extremely delicious, but I’ll have to admit, my favorite was the cabbage salad. They added orange blossom water to each salad which made a delicious combo with the other ingredients. Next to the Briwat, my sister and I shared a Harira soup, delicious as well.

Djemaa El Fna IIIAt last, we went to a place to finish it all off with Moroccan mint tea.

Djemaa El Fna IIIII loved this tray with all the ingredients you need to make Moroccan mint tea. It says: “What’s in mint tea?”

Djemaa El Fna VIThey were selling Mhajeb or stuffed Msemen. These are North African ‘pancakes’ stuffed with different kinds of stuffing.

Djemaa El Fna VIIIConclusion: It was fun. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, as it is the first edition and not everything was in place. Maybe the weather played a roll in some stands being left empty. The food was delicious, there was definitely some animation (not enough to my taste), but as I said: I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

If you are interested in seeing more, I have uploaded a vlog on my YouTube channel:

I hope you enjoyed it, leave it in the comments down below and I’ll reply ASAP.

Until Next Time,
