There's been something catching my eye at the David Jones Food Hall lately, Sparkle Cupcakery pop up stall that's been there for a few weeks only on selected days it seems.
I really wasn't expecting much, as store bought cupcakes tend to look lovely but sometimes are quite disappointing when you eat them. I tried a white chocolate and strawberry one night, and it was great! The cupcake was nice and moist, and the icing was good too (not overkill like some places)
I love the black box they give you when you buy half a dozen - feels a bit special, and it's actually fantastic for transporting cupcakes around! I've lugged them around the place all day, and they are still perfectly intact
Top left to right - Banana Toffee, White Choc and Strawberry, Lavender and Honey
Bottom left to right - Lemon squeeze, Pure Sparkle and Milk Choc
Pure Sparkle - vanilla cake made with vanilla bean & extract, you can actually see the vanilla bean flecks!
Lavender & Honey - lovely scented cake with honey frosting, I really enjoyed this one as it was something a little bit different
White Chocolate and Strawberry - with slithers of strawberry. YUM!
Banana Toffee - Banana cake with caramel icing
Milk chocolate - Belgian milk chocolate cake with icing and flakes of chocolate
Lemon Squeeze- zesty lemon cake and frosting
These cupcakes might not have the fancy designs, but out of all the cupcake stores I've tasted, these are the freshest and nicest tasting, I really enjoy the flavours that they've come up with too.
