Over time I'm going to share with you some of my favourite places in Melbourne to source incredible sweets, and also some of my sweet creative baking adventures. So that way, if you live in Melbourne or eventually visit it someday (which you all should because it's amazing), you'll have the inside scoop on the must visit sweet spots from someone who has seriously visited them all!
So starting with what is probably my number one favourite sweet food shop in Melbourne:
...a cupcake shop called Little Cupcakes.
I have tried virtually every cupcake going around, both locally and everywhere I've travelled, and these are without a doubt the absolute best I've ever had.
They just melt in your mouth, and the icing is delightfully creamy and perfectly complementary to the cake base. The flavour selection is enormous, and every single cupcake is hand crafted into the most gorgeous creation you've ever seen.
The icing is whipped, styled and delicately placed upon each cupcake, and the icing to cake ratio is exactly perfect. The cake itself is so soft, delicate, spongey, and melt in your mouth fantastic.
They are just a pleasure to consume, and every mouthful is heavenly.

My standout flavours are Red Velvet, and Raspberry White Choc (the top two cupcakes in the five shown below).

How cute are they!?

There are three Little Cupcakes city locations, one in the cute little alley of Degraves St (the one I always frequent), one on the corner of Bourke/Williams St, or the newly opened store on Queens St. You can buy large cupcakes for $4/4.50, or mini ones for $2.20. They make great gifts and you can buy cheaper in bulk. Check out their website!
It is so hard for me working in the city to not go here everyday... my job involves so much self restraint!
Try them, they will change your life. I promise you that.
Where else in Melbourne, or even internationally for when I travel, do I need to check out for my sweet food addiction?! Do you consider yourself to be more a sweet or savoury person?
