Are you ready for the DKNY Cupcake?
You read that right. The quintessential American fashion label has come out with its latest product, it’s not going to be a reinvention of the brand’s ever-popular wrap dress. Instead, DKNY has released an exclusive, one-of-a-kind cupcake recipe.
The DKNY Sweet Delicious range of fragrances, named after mouth-watering pastries (Tart Key Lime, Creamy Meringue and Pink Macaron), have inspired a cupcake recipe whipped up in partnership with famed pastry chef and confectionery superstar Johnny Iuzzuni.
“For me, the creation of food and fragrances are one in the same. Our sense of taste and smell are so closely linked,” Iuzzuni explains. “Once I studied these scents and the key ingredients, such as kumquats, orange zest and rose, I just knew I had to bring the delectable flavors to life and create the world’s first fragrance-inspired dessert.”
Iuzzuni’s Sweet Delicious Cupcake in a sugar-flecked confectionery masterpiece – this is definitely not your grandma’s homespun recipe but a gourmet spin-off on the simple baked treat. Picture a mini-sized almond cake infused with orange curd, piped with rose water meringue, topped with a candied kumquat and crystallized rose petals, then sprinkled with fresh pomegranate seeds. It’s an aromatic and totally tantalizing treat for your nose and tastebuds.
The DKNY Sweet Delicious fragrance range will be available locally from May 2012 exclusively at Paris Gallery Dubai Mall. The price of each bottle is AED 200.
