[Melbourne, Australia] Cupcake Central is Melbourne’s better known cupcake shop. Located just outside the dining hall at Melbourne Central, I felt like Alice lost in Cupcakewonderland just looking at the pretty little pinky things.
You would wish you had that extra tummy to stuff in the black velvet, vanilla vanilla, devil’s food chocolate, raspberry white chocolate, citrus lemon and cherry pistachio cupcakes.
And if you think only clothes have seasonal styles, Cupcake Central always offers new creations to go with the holidays and times (like an Autumn collection). Are you salivating already?
With a slogan like “Hatch that dream”, this café and bakery is the story of an IT consultant Sheryl Thai who was inspired by the infamous Magnolia Bakery at New York, set up an online business, and eventually achieved that dream. A constant reminder that we should always pursue our dreams, and nothing should stop us.
The Salted Caramel Cupcake (AUD$4.00) was all fluffy-sweet-delicious. The light cream cheese frosting makes it one of the best ever tasted. If only the cake was more luxurious.
Perhaps the luxurious component went to the Hot Chocolate (AUD$3.30). With melted chocolate shavings on top, this is easily the most satisfying chocolate drink I had in a long time. Okay, make that the best ever.
Learn from my mistakes. Leave more room for more of their delectable cupcakes. Don’t just have one.
