CakeSpy Undercover: A Sampling of Sweets from Budapest

Retes, from Hungary, c/o Diane
A few months ago, CakeSpy buddy (and very talented textiles designer) Diane Kappa made a big move: from Seattle to Budapest. Now that's she's had some time to settle and get to know her surroundings, it's time to dig into the bakery scene in Hungary. What has she been enjoying? Here are some of her favorite sweet treats so far:

The first thing I think of is called a csoko csiga (chocolate snail) It is not really a snail. It is in the shape of a snail and is absolutely delicious! And the funny thing is you can buy them in the subway station. They are about $1 and taste so delightful! Not too sweet but heavy on the cocoa taste.

And you can not forget Retes! It is so tasty!!! You can buy them savory or sweet. Sour cherry, turo (like cottage cheese but drier), apple are my favorite. You can also buy them with cabbage. I attached a photo of an apple retes (top picture)! The photo was taken at a “cukrászda” (sweet shop) called “Lukas” Here are some photos from Lukas:

All I can say is, like whoa. Wouldn't you love to be in Budapest right now?

Want more? You can stay updated on Diane's sweet adventures via her blog; while you're spending time on the internet (you junkie!), why not also check out her shop and portfolio?

I'll take that Rococo-style hall to go, please. And if it isn't too much trouble, a few of those desserts as well.

I have to know what those round, shiny, gelatinous-looking pink desserts are, the ones fourth from the left! Tell me Diane, I'm dying of curiosity!
