(Very!) Sweet Things in Dakar

Last Saturday I did something that’s been on my to-do list for a while now: try one of Josefina’s Sweet Things. In this case, I chose a red velvet cupcake as my sweet. It was amazing. I stood in the middle of the Kermesse just chowing down, frosting on the tip of my nose and not caring at all. It was that good.

  1. We sampled her goodies at the Dakar Women’s Group Bazaar. We didn’t buy first time around, as we wanted to take it all in first, and when we came back, she was down to one last cupcake, which my friend bought. Josefina was kind enough to let me lick the frosting off her plate with my finger, though, which did it for me! 😀 Hee, hee!
