The Cupcake Bakery, George St, Sydney

The Cupcake Bakery, George St, Sydney
Thursday 24 January, 2008

If you love cupcakes Sydney has a new hotspot! The Cupcake Bakery has opened on George St in The Ivy complex. It opened on Wednesday 16 January so is still very new but is already turning over 800 - 900 cupcakes a day. Yes, you read correctly 800 - 900 cupcakes a day.

The Cupcake Bakery philosophy is simple,

Here at The Cupcake Bakery we believe that everyone deserves the good things in life and so we have created some beautiful cupcakes just for you to enjoy. Our cupcakes are baked from scratch daily on the premises so you know that you are getting only the freshest products.

Today we walked up George St mid afternoon and there was already a queue out the door. The George St site is intimate and shares an entrance with fashion store, Mimco. There are 6 high stools against the raised shelves and fabulous cupcake photos decorating the walls. With an established premises in Paddington already this cupcake store is popular and already has a following. They charge $3.50 each or $39.00 per one dozen or $1.50 each for Cupcakies (mini cupcakes).

They had already sold out of their most popular cupcakes so we were left with 4 to choose from. We ordered the:

Choc Vanilla - a moist chocolate cupcake with swirls of vanilla buttercream
Chilli Choc - a moist chocolate cupcake with a hint of chilli warmth and chocolate buttercream

I'm a cupcake fan from way back having enjoyed the offerings from My Little Cupcake, Cupcakes on Pitt and also making my own. I'm thrilled to have one within walking distance from the office and so many new flavours to try.

FYI - the Chilli Choc was good if you don't mind a mild kick and aftertaste. I'm looking forward to trying their Choc Peppermint next.....

Hi, I'm another Steph who loves good food in Sydney :)

I love this shop! My favourite it the chili chocolate (with that cute little chili) and the carrot one (with the equally adorable carrot).

My best friend is a chef and we're always looking for good places to eat on our student/apprentice wage (which is better than the student one, I might add >.>) before and after the theatre. I'll be using this blog as a rec!
