Sparkle Cupcakery

They’re unique. Their flavours are somewhat exotic. Their weekly flavour charts are exclusive. They’re more than just your typical cupcakes. They’re designer cupcakes.  And of course, L&J just couldn’t resist. ;) With its sleek black and silver décor, Sparkle Cupcakery very much resembles a professional photography studio. After much consideration and thoroughly matching up the available cupcakes to the flavour chart we decide on our choices.  
L decided on the Oriental Flower – "a lychee and rose cake with a sweet rose petal topping". L can never resist the perfection combination of rose and lychee! It was also the gluten free choice of the day so even better (marked with the little white dot hehe :D)! Check out how sheek the cupcakes look by the way, they match the patterns on the mirror :P The cake was nice and moist with actual chunks of lychee. The frosting was light and complemented the cake. It was light and very enjoyable.

 J went for Lavender and Honey- "soft scented lavender with a creamy honey frosting".  This had a much stronger taste than expected. It was quite a powerful flavour. Despite the nice texture, J did not enjoy the cupcake as much as she thought she would. Having never tasted lavender cake before, the powerful scent really gave her a shock at first bite.. and the first thing that poped into her mind was those lavender scented air-fresheners.. heh :p... hmm it was probably a bit too gourmet for her tastebuds hehe

At the end of last year, L & J also managed to get hold of some free sparkle cupcakes that were given out in darlingharbour during one of their festivals. We had a Milk Chocolate- "moist belgian milk chocolate cake and frosting"; and a Coconut ice- "tropical shredded coconut cake, topped with coconut ice". From memory they were both really nice (part of the reason which led to our visit to the store :p)! soft and fluffy cake, not too sweet, J definately enjoyed these two more than the lavender one :p  hmmm it would be probably better for her to go with the safer choices next time hehe

I went to Sparkle a month or two ago after spending the day at the studio and chose a vanilla cupcake (pure sparkle) while my friend chose a milk chocolate cupcake and we were super disappointed!
The cake was really dry and the icing was wayy too sweet on the pure sparkle
and the chocolate cupcake was so-so.

But maybe I was there on a bad day!
I always judge cupcakeries on their vanilla cupcakes because they're so basic
but maybe next time i'll try their oriental flower.

Your pictures are great though :)
