Sweethearts Cupcakes in Paddington is a gorgeous light-filled cupcake and coffee dispensary that specialises in lovingly crafted sweets. Located in the Plaza Theatre building on Latrobe Terrace, this cosy spot boasts two cabinets chock-full of miniature and regular-sized cupcakes of many flavours. The selection boasts a rotation of 15-to-20 core flavours, with gluten-free and vegan-friendly options available. Leading the selection is the signature fluffy vanilla-bean cupcake with raspberry icing topped with fondant. Other must-try options include the delectable apple-crumble cupcake filled with house-made custard, the lemon meringue cupcake boasting house-made lemon curd and topped with lightly torched meringue, chocolate and salted-caramel cupcakes, orange, almond and toffee cupcakes, and the always popular red velvet. Take-away packs can be filled with your choice of treat, from humble two-cupcake boxes to office-pleasing 12 packs. Local roaster Blackstar is on deck as Sweethearts’ caffeine supplier, but non-coffee drinkers can sip on a selection of T2 teas, HRVST ST juices, kombucha and decadent milkshakes.
