Puppenkrapfen at Demel may well be compared
to the first flowers that herald the arrival of spring,
only that these delicious morsels
promise a carnival season in full swing
How to pronounce it?
Alright, here we go,
You are not laughing, are you?
While a Faschingskrapfen, carnival donut,
is usually the size of a donut,
the Puppenkrapfen is a smaller version,
dainty enough for Puppen,
the German word for "dolls"
One of the cutest food names
I have encountered here,
and one of the most delicious morsels, too
