There's legend about a dragon and a princess (it's a long story, but I'll resume it, specially because I don't dare to translate it to English). The fact is, there was a dragon about to eat a princess. but then, Saint George appeared, killed the dragon and save the princess. From the blood of the dragon sprouted a rosebush, and that's why, in Catalonia, every April 23th, men give their beloved a rose.
And, as April 23th is also Book Day, women give their beloved a book.
So, it was very easy, I celebrate Saint George's with these cupcakes decorated with a rose and a book.
These ones are basic chocolate cupcakes with an extraordinary buttercream made with butter and cream cheese (taken from the last Peggy Porschen's book). I promise to give you the recipe in the next entry!
