An Israeli cupcake bakery

We just got word that Tel Aviv, Israel now has its very own cupcake bakery! (click here for the English version)

Owner Ofer Yeger wrote us and said there's no Hebrew word for "cupcakes," so the bakery is called Cupcakes and offers these flavors: "Extra Chocolate, Lemon, Oreo, Black & White (vanilla cake filled with whipped cream and topped with a chocolate genache and meringue) Think Pink (vanilla cake w/ white chocolate genache), Coffee, Apple pie and Chocolate-mint."

Here are a few photos from their site, and I have a friend who'll be there soon who I'm hoping can give us a first-hand report, plus we'll be interviewing Ofer about the Israeli cupcake scene soon.

I actually live in Israel, and have been longing for a cupcakery for quite some time. Ironic that I had to find out about it on a blog from the U.S.! Thanks for the info...
