Cupcake indulgence at MySweetopia, Poppy Cakes, The Cupcake Parlour
Tiny towers of perfectly piped icing sitting atop a sweet, soft base – cupcakes are the perfect creation for morning tea, an afternoon pick-me-up or after-dinner treat. The Weekend Edition has scoped out some of Brisbane’s best cupcake creators.
There’s nothing better than a rich, chocolate-heavy sweet morsel to induce happiness and warmth in the cooler season. Delve into the fudge-heavy bliss of the Chocolate Fudge cupcake or Peanut Butter Fudge cupcake at MySweetopia at South Bank. Fudge ganache sits upon a base of chocolate mudcake or peanut butter, while an additional fudge filling surprises on first bite.

With blood orange season fast approaching, the team at Poppy Cakes at Emporium in Fortitude Valley is back to creating its Blood Orange and Poppy Seed cupcake. The juice and zest from these delicious fruits is mixed through the cupcake base, with zest also sprinkled through the icing. Or if the rich aroma of coffee captured in a sweet shell is what gets your tastebuds tingling, try the Caramel Latte cupcake. The perfect treat to curb three-thirty-itis, the coffee base is topped with sweet caramel icing.
