The empty space in Paddington left by the Paddington Deli and Epicerie has been filled with the opening of a specialty cupcake store that has added a splash of pink to the Brisbane strip.
Sweethearts Cupcakes, now open at 153 Latrobe Terrace is a cosy, light-filled cupcake store and café which boasts a two-cabinet display of miniature and regular-sized cupcakes in a variety of regular and signature flavours.
Leading the selection is the signature fluffy vanilla-bean cupcake with raspberry icing topped with fondant, as well as an apple-crumble cupcake filled with house-made custard, an impressive lemon meringue creation with house-made lemon curd and topped with lightly torched meringue, chocolate and salted-caramel, orange, almond, toffee cupcakes, and red velvet.
Take-away packs can be filled with combinations of your choice, to share with friends or colleagues or indulge yourself, with events catering available along with a good selection of vegan and gluten-free cupcakes.
Blackstar coffee is on offer from an on-brand refurbished Synesso espresso machine, while non-coffee drinkers can choose from a selection of T2 teas, HRVST ST juices, kombucha and decadent milkshakes to sip under the chandelier. For those wanting to up their own cake-decorating game, the shop also stocks specialty sprinkles from Sprinkle Dust.
Owner Jo has formal training in cookery, but dreamed of owning her own cake shop where she could combine her love of cooking with the artistic outlet of cake decoration.
