After a morning of retail therapy, I can’t think of anything better than a chance to indulge in a sugar fix before heading out for round 2 of the shops in the afternoon. My friend Mara and I are on a girls weekend in Melbourne and we make our obligatory visit to Degraves St. We stumble across Little Cupcakes, a cute little cupcake shop and we decide to step inside. Their cupcakes came in 2 sizes and were very reasonably priced with at least 20 flavours to choose from.
We both decide to order some mini cupcakes and a coffee and rest our legs for a while. We were lucky enough to sit in the front window overlooking Degraves St and watch the world pass by. I chose a Mini Snickers Cupcake ($2.20) and a Mini Vanilla Cupcake ($2.20). Both were light and fluffy in texture. The snickers cupcake was chocolatey and was topped with a chunk of snickers with chopped nuts. The vanilla cupcake was more subtle in flavour and the icing was incredibly light.
My friend ordered a Mini Red Velvet Cupcake ($2.20) and a Mini St Patrick’s Day Cupcake ($2.20). On the plate together they looked rather Christmassy – red and green cake with stars and sparkly sprinkles. She said both cupcakes were also light and airy and she thoroughly enjoyed them.
Our coffees were really good too!
Next time you’re passing Degraves St, pop on in and treat yourself!
