So this week, I think we have an entire day’s meal offerings planned out for you; you have got pho for lunch and burgers for dinner, or vice versa. Now you need something sweet to round out the day. Get a cupcake. When it comes to satisfying a sweet tooth without the guilt later on, these little delightfully festive cakes work their magic. Here are some of Melbourne’s best cupcake places:
There might not be too many to follow in the footsteps of this place. Many claim they make the best in all of Melbourne, but I will let you be the judge. It opened in 2010 and make fresh cupcakes that are fluffy and light. They have flavors such as Vanilla Vanilla, Red Velvet, and Salted Caramel. They also like to make seasonal cupcakes. For the summer be sure to try perhaps the Pavlova or Baklava. In case you become a fan, which you probably will, you can get on their Facebook page to stay up-to-date for all their new flavours on their weekly baking schedule!
The Cupcake Bakery
Get your cupcake fix here, where they have any flavor imaginable. One might not be enough! Try the sticky date, lemon poppy seed, banana, chili-choc(!), custard fumble, the hummingbird (with pineapple, coconut, walnut cake, frangipani), strawberry swirl cheesecake, lemon meringue, rocky road…whew! There is more than that even, but there are too many to list! If you can have a little more restraint, they have bite-size cake pops too. They also do parties, corporate and personal occasions and you can order online. Not sure what to give as a little last-minute present? They have gift boxes too!
Cupcakes by Paolo
This is where Victoria satisfies its sweet tooth with these artisanal cupcakes made with the best ingredients and the most care. They are delicious and if you are looking to wow the crowd or gathering for a birthday or other special occasions, their decorations are first-class.
I love the name of this place alone! A ‘cupcake occasion’ might consist of many occasions. If you need cupcakes to cater a special occasion; weddings, birthday, baby arrivals or corporate event, they make all their cakes to order and from scratch. They can cater practically any size event from three dozen to three-thousand of these lovely little cakes. If you are just having a get together they can make you a display to surprise all of your guests with their very best seasonal flavours.
