I thought that this cupcake will be wicked: yema (which is yolky and sweet) with pastillas de leche (which is milky and sweet) combine together? Sounds wicked and ant friendly to me! But it's the first time that one of my siblings commented that frosting is needed for the cupcake to have it's taste (he's not a fan of frosting) in short this actually has a very light sweetness that the frosting is needed for the cupcake to have it's own identity (and if you are following me on instagram, this is not the cake/cupcake that I've posted lately...that one is super yummy).
I got the Yema Cupcake with Pastillas De Leche Frosting a.k.a. Cielitos from Adora's Box blog. The cupcake is supposed to be my resurgence after my defeat with a bun which totally failed (my siblings/guinea pigs thought it was hopia/mooncake) and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies which is too salty and sweet (and I haven't found the perfect recipe, all seems to be the same sets of ingredients and amount with the one I based my cookies).
I wouldn't be putting the recipe here since I didn't alter the ingredients and method or research for an alternative recipe, I'll just try to explain the texture and taste of this cupcake. The "cake" itself is so dense like a pound cake but it's not yolky or sweet like yema, it's more on the milky side and it's almost bland that it's a must to put a lot of frosting.
The frosting on the other side do taste like the pastillas de leche, milky with just the right amount of sweetness. Combined these two together and you will get a Milky Cupcake.
p.s. I still suck at cake decorating and putting frosting
