A taste of Africa – cupcakes by Delights by Cynthia
October as you know, is Black History Month. How cool are these African themed cupcakes by Delights by Cynthia celebrating African arts and crafts – textiles, sculpture, beading and of course, nature! Cynthia Akinsanya created this collection to celebrate Black History Month and as a nod to her West African heritage. Her family is from Sierra Leone.
Cynthia Akinsanya says:
“These cupcakes are definitely pleasing to the eye and will delight your taste buds too. I have such a rich and delicious heritage that continues to inspire my creations.
As a continent, Africa is rich in resources in terms of delicious ingredients, coconuts, citrus fruits, bananas and nuts. Some of the best coffee comes from Ethiopia; let’s not forget that chocolate is made from cocoa, usually from Ghana or Ivory Coast. Even home favourites like Milo and plantain chips can be incorporated into recipes to give a modern African twist.”
The cupcakes are decorated with edible beading, sculpture and iconic African shapes and symbols; which is right on trend.
“The trend for all things Africans is driven by Africans or people of African descent. We are putting our own stamp on food, fashion, music and the arts. It’s exciting to see.”
