Shhh, one of Melbourne’s best kept secrets

little cupcakesThis weekend, I plan to treat my kids to a mini cupcake at Little Cupcake in Delgraves Street, Melbourne — a delightful strip in the city renowned for its gorgeous hotchpotch of eclectic shops and cafes. Little Cupcake is a quaint haven for sweet tooths, dedicated entirely to cupcakes! Think mini cupcakes smothered in heavenly buttercream in a size perfect for cramming the whole thing in your mouth. As I devour my cupcake, I will float back on a nostalgic cloud to my childhood and regale my children with tales of the ‘good old days’ when the delicious aromas of Grandma’s warm gooey homemade cakes beckoned us on our weekly visits. They will probably completely ignore me, cupcake heaven beckons afterall. Oh, who can blame them?

Little Cupcakes is in fact so ‘mini’ that queues regularly spill out the door and way down the road. Timeless classics are on offer including vanilla, lemon, mint and strawberry as well as other inviting concoctions – ‘creamy coconut’, ‘Belgian button chocolate’ and the dreamy ‘Red Velvet’- my absolute favourite. Cupcakes are available in 2 sizes ‘small’ and ‘extra extra tiny’ and served on a wooden tray. Offered with an array of coffees and teas, served in pretty teapots. Who can resist? Anyone care to join me for some afternoon tea?

Must get there when in Melbourne next! I put together a little round-up of all the cupcake stores in Australia recently and had included Little Cupcake (with that adorable Tiny Teddies cupcake pic), but now I might have to put it at the top of the list.

I was in Paris last weekend with my husband and as Emily suggested on a old post I went for cupcakes at cupcakes and co. I drugged my husband who wasn’t quite convinced why we should have American food in France..!
Since it was lunch time we even had bagles! it was fun and delicious and at the end my husband was happy too!
I just wanted to share this with you to let all the girls know that I do take in serious consideration your suggestions!
We even went to Le pain quotidien!
thank you babyccino!
