Cupid's Cupcakes, Katoomba St, Katoomba




Cupid's Cupcakes, Katoomba St, Katoomba
Sunday 30 July, 2006

Cupid's opened 6 weeks ago and has joined the scores of cupcake stores that have sprung up all over Sydney. The owners, Phillip & Michelle, have run a successful cake business in the Blue Mountains for years and only recently decided to open a shop front.

It's a cosy space with only enough room for two at the counter. The cupcake display is gorgeous and they sell mini and large cupcakes for a fraction of the cost you would pay in Sydney. Mini cupcakes are $1.50 each and large ones are $3.50.

The cupcakes are actually mud cakes - white and milk chocolate mud cakes prepared in cupcake wrappers and smothered in delicious frosting. Did I say delicious? I meant, divine, decadent, more-ish, addictive.....

Purchases of two cupcakes or more warrant a little white box with tissue paper, so you can take them away and save them for later. I, on the other hand, proceeded to eat mine at the counter while I chatted to Phillip. I learnt that Michelle does all the baking and preparation and also caters for weddings, engagements, birthday and christening celebrations.

They have a display of cupcake themed gifts and some fabulous large porcelain cupcakes on display around the shop front.

Phillip also makes a decent coffee and they source their coffee beans from a speciality roaster in Artarmon. As much as I would have loved to stay and indulge in another cupcake.....lunch beckoned.

Haven't had them yet, but saw them on a brief trip to Katoomba in September 2008.I have been raving about them ever since and am going to travel all the way from Newcastle to order some for my cousins baby shower.
Can't wait oh and I raved about them that much that the theme for the shower is now based on cupcakes!!!!

I found their cupcakes to be pretty ordinary, not bad, but nothing special and no where near as good as the cupcakes at Glenbrook Markets.
Luckily for my waste line the markets are only once a month.
