Cupcakes - Can't get enough of them!

You know the stuff that dreams are made of? Yes  like beautiful pastel drapes, candy coloured walls, fresh lilies and cupcakes. Yes cupcakes! They are my latest fascination. These tiny little things, just melt in your mouth and the buttery, not so sugary and a little salty icing leaves a satisfied taste behind. I can just keep gobbling them. But my head that counts the calories does not allow me too.

So I've tried a lot of places and the three mentioned below are my absolute favourites: (Please note list is restricted only to Mumbai)

Guilt Trip, Khar West

The best that i liked: Ferrero Rocher cup cake
Anything else:  Also, try their Oreo cup cakes, they have a lot of minis priced at just Rs 20 so keep trying till you find your sweet spot. They also stock a lot of bakery items but not tried them as yet. Although everything looks good and is packaged well.

Le 15, Phoenix Mills

The best that i liked: The Vanilla cup cake
Anything else:  Although, this place is more known for its macaroons (it is almost the place that introduced macaroons to Mumbai), their cupcakes are also oh so soft yummylicious. Try their Belgian chocolate cupcakes as well. No matter what you pick up you are sure to love it and come back asking for more.

Sweet Desire, Bandra West


The best that i liked: Red velvet cup cake
Anything else:  Apart from the red velvet cup cake the rest are quite average. But do try their mud cake its really spongy and chocolaty.


Do let me know your favourite cupcake places. Would love to try them.
