The cupcake trend has been around for a good 3+ years and it doesn’t seem to be dying down. In fact, why should it when you’ve got great looking and equally tasty cakes? Last week, we had a peek into Let Them Eat Cake‘s studio in Central to see what made Sharon’s cupcakes so unique. Sharon is the owner and cupcake extraordinaire and is full of creative buzz. Coming from an interior design background, the inspiration for her cupcakes ranges from wallpaper (!) to fashion magazines which she then artistically translates to her cupcakes. What’s great is that she genuinely loves what she’s doing and this is reflected in those delicately adorned cakes; so pretty you almost feel guilty eating them! Once you do go past your guilty conscience, the cake which comes in vanilla victoria sponge, chocolate or lemon and is only made with natural ingredients, is a bite of moist yet light goodness complemented by a thin layer of fondant that isn’t overly sweet.
Choose from their range of signature cupcakes for your wedding cupcake tower or as a sweet favour or better yet, have them tailor-make the cupcakes for your big day. Do you have a colour theme in mind? Or are there certain flowers that you like? Have them incorporated into your wedding cake for a personal touch; just make sure you give Sharon some time to design, bake and decorate your cakes. It’s no easy task hand-making anything let alone a few hundred edible flowers and just to give you an idea of the hard work that’s involved, the hydrangea cupcake takes about 2 hours to decorate. Now, that’s a whole lot of love put into one cake.
