I needed to hunt down some cupcakes for a morning tea today, and came across the Cupcake Taste in Graceville in Brisbane's western suburbs.
The shop itself is cute as a button, and is like a fairy's garden filled with lollies and chocolates so is any little girl's dream destination. When I got there I was greeted by garden gnomes around grass-topped chairs and toadstool tables, and I knew I'd be in for a treat with their baked goods.
I had high expectations for the cupcakes from a place called the Cupcake Taste and I was not disappointed. I bought a bunch of mini cupcakes, which at some places can be a bit dried out as they cook so much quicker than traditional-sized cupcakes. The Cupcake Taste nailed these ones- the cake parts were super tasty, light and moist on the inside just as they should be. The icing was perfect too, sweet and fluffy in texture and they were topped with the cutest sweets.
The cookies and cream cupcakes with mini Oreos on top were definitely the number one hit at morning tea, but we also loved, loved, loved the red velvet, triple choc and freckle fantasy flavours (pictured).
Other cupcakes at the shop showed off the beautiful handmade cake toppers which The Cupcake Taste also sells for budding bakers at home. There are also themed cupcakes available to order including housewarming cupcakes with little keys and houses on top. For fun, quirky cupcakes that also taste divine, this little shop really delivers.
