Tomorrow is National Braai Day (or officially Heritage Day) here in South Africa. Most of the people in the cirlcles of my life don’t really celebrate the holidays in our calendar. Unless sleeping late and not going to the office counts as “celebrating”. Maybe it does? Anyway, I will be stoked if this changes on day soon (that’s another blog post for another blog), but the point is Braai Day is pretty exciting because a lot of South Africans actually celebrate it. By having a braai, of course. A braai is basically a barbecue, for those of you who aren’t from Africa 😉
So to get into the spirit of things, here are some baking ideas for tomorrow:
- Strawberry cupcakes (since strawberries are in season again, yay.)
- Black label cupcakes. Because what is a braai without beer, right?
- Green and gold cupcakes.
Happy holiday for tomorrow y’all. x
