After so many mediocre cupcake experiences in Paris (Berko, Cupcake and Co.) I don't know why I keep trying - it's not like I'm a cupcake nut. I cannot figure it out. Today I was walking in the 11th and remembered that a commenter suggested Coupe Foudre has the best cupcake in Paris. What the hell - ONE more try..... I walked in and went straight for the cupcake shelf and picked out a cinnamon - I'm a sucker for cinnamon.
I ordered it with a noisette (shot of espresso with milk) and took a seat outside to position myself for people-watching. It came delivered all cutesie - riding on a porcelain skirt. The noisette sat inside an egg cup on top of a silver star. I'm pretty manly, but sitting outside in front of this dainty set-up is enough to make your pecker retract an inch.
So, I did what any self-respecting man would do, I downed it in one ugly, cinnamon spraying bite. It wasn't bad, I must say. Way, way better than both Berko and Cupcake and Co. The cake was soft, though not moist enough. Pretty decent, in a "best croissant in NY" kind of way, know what I mean?
The interior is cutesie as well, so next time I come here I'm bringing the Pingle. At least then it will look like I'm accompanying my cutesie girlfriend to her cutesie cupcake place.
