“So damn tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

These cupcakes are so delicious that we came back again and again while in Queenstown. Why spend heaps of dessert and a restaurant when you can just come here! They opening hours weren't great however.

“Dry and no variety.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Nice looking little shop but the cupcakes were dry and there was only 4 flavours to choose from. Probably the worst cupcakes I have had from a "cupcake" bakery. They did look nice though but unfortunately the taste didn't compare.

“Great for sugar cravings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Another Queenstown gem tucked away in an alley behind the Mall. Couldn't help but try it after noticing the bizarre juxtaposition of a girly cupcake store and the Star Trek Borg tagline 'Resistance is Futile' emblazoned across the shop wall. Love it. The cupcakes were brilliant too - I can highly recommend the Lemon Meringue and Vanilla ones especially!
