Located on George Street near Wynyard Station, The Cupcake Bakery is a cupcake lover’s dream. The shelves are lined with rows and rows of exquisitely designed cupcakes in unique flavours, and we were very excited to see what the taste would be like.
We ordered the ‘Chocolate Rocky Road Cupcake’, which narrowly beat out some other rather incredible-looking cupcakes such as a red velvet cheesecake and a banana cake cupcake. Our cupcake consisted of a chocolate base, with chocolate icing, marshmallows and chocolate sauce drizzled on top. For any lover of chocolate, this was amazing! The cupcake itself was also really large, which perhaps contributed to its only downside – I felt that the entire cupcake was a bit too rich and sweet however those with a sweeter tooth will definitely disagree and love it!
The Cupcake Bakery is very clear for what it stands for – cupcakes. As soon as you walk inside, you are confronted by rows of edible cupcakes, some giant cupcakes, images of cupcakes on the wall. The service was efficient and friendly and there is limited seating available both inside and outside.
If you are ever looking for a quick snack or dessert during lunch or on the way home from work, The Cupcake Bakery is conveniently located, well priced, and most importantly, delicious! Try the ‘Chocolate Rocky Road’ for a chocolate lovers dream, or if you like another flavour, let us know in the comments and we’ll be sure to try it out!
