Little Cupcakes, Melbourne

Another food haven we visited on our last trip to Melbourne was Little Cupcakes located down one of my fav places, Degraves. I'm not a big fan of cakes or cupcakes and I personally reaaaaally dislike the proliferation of cupcake chains everywhere because I truly believe the cupcakes they produce are bland and tasteless most of the time, the icing being the only redeeming feature. However, Little Cupcakes seems to have proved me wrong! Maybe its because it's an individual bakery and not a chain, but the cupcakes tasted reaaaallly good!

It's a cutesy little shop that could be easily missed, but we came looking for the shop specially because Nadi assured me that these cupcakes were worth the visit, even though I remained sceptical. We were lucky enough to snare the largest table inside (it's a very small shop, with limited dining space), it's all very homely with wooden tables, plants, chalkboards and low lighting...

Gosh they look so excited don't they =P

The cupcake selection was extensive, and what's great about these is that they are small so you can get a few to taste all the flavours.

I have to admit these were reaaaally nice cupcakes. They were light and fluffy, not at all crumbly and dry which I HATE cos it gets stuck in your throat (like most other cupcakes from chains I've had) and tasted like the flavours they were named after thank god haha. My fav was the Raspberry White Chocolate, which I saved for the plane ride home, well worth the wait! They're all reasonably priced as well at $2.20 per cupcake, $4 for the larger versions of the classics.

For someone who doesn't like cake and cupcakes, I gobbled these up pretty fast, I'm amazed I even had that last one on the plane haha. Wouldn't mind going back to get some more...=P

Not really, but hey!
