The Cupcake Collection

Wednesday 15 December 2010
One cannot miss the bright pink counter with all the exquisitely made cupcakes and iced cookies at Riccarton Mall. Since I've been away for so long, I had no idea there are now shops upstairs at the 1st floor. This located at the far end at the foodcourt. Little L who normally isn't a fan of cakes insisted on trying a snowman cupcake. It wasn't bad at all. The baker is certainly an artist. Check out the amazing details and fine workmanship on the cookies! Impressive! They were tons better than the cupcakes made by Primrose Hill or Lola's Kitchen at Selfridges.

This cookie Christmas tree was sold for $150. Having iced cookies myself on numerous occasions, I can imagine the amount of painstaking labor that has gone into making these.

  1. Ah, but you see, Marlene, you went to the wrong places for cupcakes in London. Next time, try Buttercup (their Red Velvet), Bea's of Bloomsbury (they use italian buttercream)and for something a bit different and more of a cakey texture in their cupcakes, try Cox, Cookies and Cake in Soho. Otherwise, always head to Ottolenghi for ANY of their cakes including their cupcakes.

    I do love your photography and you're right, the cookies do look good! :)

  2. LOL. I went to all the well publicized bakeries and boy, was I disappointed. I'll be sure to try out all the above places when I'm back.

    Hope you're keeping well. Must be freezing at the moment!

  3. Cupcakes are small cake design to serve one person, frequently bake in a small, thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are common on cupcakes.That' why cupcakes are in demand muffins to eat.

  4. The photos are amazing...the cupcakes at "the Cupcake Collection" are better than anywhere else I have seen the world over.
