The sleepy seaside village of Cadaques in the Catalan region of Spain is an adorable little village worth visiting for a day or two. The old town has narrow, winding streets you can easily get lost in and the waterfront area is lined with pretty white washed houses. I love little towns like this and Cadaques will always have a special place in my
stomach heart due to the wonderful bite-sized taps cakes which are a specialty of the town.
Taps are little sponge cakes made in the shape of a champagne cork and dipped in icing sugar for extra sweetness.
They melt in your mouth and trust me when I say it’s tough to stop at just one. If you don’t eat them within a day or two, which is almost impossible, then you can dip the taps in your coffee or a little rum (!) to moisten them.
Where to Buy: Taps are available from a few places in the region (including in some restaurants) but Pastisseria La Mallorquina on the waterfront in Cadaques is home to the original taps which they’ve been making since the 17th century.
