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.

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.
