Cupcakes/Fairy Cakes – Nigella Bites
"If you train a man, you train an indiviual but if you train a woman, you train a whole nation."
Kwegha Aggrey, African educator
Earlier this year, Mari attended the Sundance Film Festival when "Half Life", a movie her cinematographer husband filmed, premiered there. During that time, she had a chance to see other films, which she shared with her readers. The story of one documentary, "Puujee", stayed with me for quiet some time. Japanese photographer Yoshiharu Sekino followed and filmed the lives of a nomadic Mongolian family. There are three inspiring women in this documentary: Puujee, as Mari describes, a "fiesty and independent-spirited" 7-year old, her "amazing" mother and "sweet" grandmother. All were accomplished women in their own way despite surviving a series of tradegies. International Women’s Day reminds me of them.
Zorra (Kochtopf) and Fiordisale put together an event, where food bloggers were asked to cook/bake something yellow for International Women’s day. I decided to make these simple cupcakes, which I found on Cook (almost) Anything at Least Once. The recipe comes from Nigella Bites.
Please excuse me while I go eat another cupcake.
