Bisou Bake Shop - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Here's another throwback to my travels throughout Southeast Asia:

When I hit the town of Kuala Lumpur, I was surprised by the stark difference compared to Thailand. After traveling for months it was nice to end the vacation in a city that was put together and organized. I hoped the upgrade would also apply to the baked goods.

I met up with a good friend who took me to Bisou bake shop at the mall below the Petronas towers.The mall itself was glamorous making me hope for a really good treat. The bake shop was a small kiosk but was shined with elegance. There were traditional cupcakes like red velvet and chocolate as well as fancy, different flavors like pink lemonade and cotton candy. I was a little overwhelmed with the elegance if the decorations.

Red Velvet Cupcake from Bisou Bake Shop
I got the traditional red velvet and was welcomed by a small cupcake with smooth, creamy frosting. The frosting was a cream cheese tasting frosting but without a very strong cream cheese flavor. It was nice and did not overpower the cupcake itself. The cake was light and fluffy, not too dense and very moist. I was happily surprised to find a stronger chocolate taste! Finally an almost true red velvet cupcake.
