Up in Chicago, there’s a place called Dokil Bakery that ships goodies all over the place. My local Korean groceries carry their chestnut bread, sweet bean bread, and castella cakes, and it’s good stuff.
So I saw a new castella muffin/cupcake at the Korean grocery. It had big red splotches and some stringy stuff, and it looked interesting. Of course I bought it.
1. It was a savory muffin/popover.
2. The red blotches were chili peppers.
3. The filling was some kind of grated cabbage.
So… yeah… it was tasty tasty tasty, and I don’t regret buying it. But the packaging and ingredient list were totally incorrect!
Literally, “the cake was a lie” ….
