A lovely treat with a cuppa. A nice variety of flavours. Icing was really sweet. The texture of the cake was moist and soft. A little expensive but very filling.

Please tell me why they don't have any taste at all! Aren't those small bakeries with cupcakes supposed to be different and have good icing taste? Please improve before I come back. There's nothing better than Petal Cupcakes in Auckland at the moment - waiting for the day until everyone finally realises the old fashioned cupcakes are NOT good at... More

The carrot cupcake wasn't like carrot cake at all, and the velvet cupcake was better but the frosting top sweet. Luckily their service was nice.

I love, love, loved the tiramasu cupcake, that was abosultely delish. The plain vanilla was a little bit dry and there was too much frosting, but I would go back just to eat another tiramasu and try some other flavours.

Located in Melbourne Central, the Cupcake Bakery is worth checking out. I love cupcakes and I bought a red velvet cupcake which was incredibly delicious. There is a wide range of cupcakes available so you can't go wrong here.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
