Cupcakes worth celebrating
The latest couture collection is in store now and ready-to-eat at your leisure. Indulge your passion for the finer things in life with a selection of artistic edible creations. Welcome to the elite world of Couture Cupcakes. Couture Cupcakes is a boutique bakery that offers an assortment of sweet goodies to help you find the celebration in every day life.

Prepare yourself for a unique collection exclusively designed and baked fresh daily by store owner Deborah Doyle. Each piece is hand crafted to her exacting standards with every aspect of their creation executed with precision and flair. With an assortment of beautiful, bold and innovative cupcakes, this boutique bakery pushes the boundaries of specialist baking and the skilful art of sweet seduction.

Couture Cupcakes gives you the chance to celebrate the finer things in life.

Forget all conventional ideas you have of these miniature cakes because Couture Cupcakes has expanded the range of flavour possibilities. Red velvet, coconut cream cheese, chocolate raspberry, butterfly, cookies & cream, choc peanut butter and Nutella are just a few of the 12 delicious flavours baked fresh daily and available for your consumption in store. However, the selection doesn't finish here. There are 36 enticing flavours available on the bakery menu for you to enjoy. The variety and combination of flavours will satisfy any sweet tooth. Therefore, make sure you sample the myriad of flavours, textures and colours available and find something to suit your tastes.

Nutella Cupcake
This heavenly cupcake is worth celebrating.

I have personally tried the Nutella and cookies & cream cupcakes (because one just isn't enough) and must attest to the quality and taste. The Nutella cupcake ($4.90) had a chocolate cake base which was filled with a generous dollop of deliciously gooey hazelnut goodness in the centre. The top was a perfectly balanced combination of vanilla butter cream icing expertly swirled with even more Nutella. You simply must be a Nutella fan to fully enjoy this one. In contrast, the cookies & cream variety ($4.90) had a plain chocolate cake base with a delicious mixture of icing and crushed biscuits on top. The cherry on the cake was definitely the decorative petite cream filled biscuit. Both flavours were delightfully decadent.

Cookies & Cream Cupcake
Make sure you take yourself home something scrumptious for later.

These cupcakes are unlike any other cupcakes I have tried previously. While being light and fluffy in texture the cake was also deliciously moist. This unexpected combination made these miniature cakes such a treat. Furthermore, the abundance of icing and adornments made each piece a true celebration of culinary decadence.

These exquisite cupcakes were almost too pretty to eat. If you are looking for an indulgent afternoon treat this is definitely the place to go. However, the best part is you can also share these sweet celebrations with all your friends. Couture Cupcakes is more than happy to provide you with the perfect cake, cupcake or biscuit creation to help you celebrate any occasion.

Dessert Bar
Dine on a delicious dessert whenever you feel like it.

This is an ideal way to set yourself apart and make your special day unique. You have the opportunity to have something tailor made to suit your tastes and event needs. Special occasions such as weddings, birthdays and corporate functions are all part of the service. In fact, Couture Cupcakes is happy to cater to "any celebration that requires cake," Ms. Doyle said. Instead of a wedding cake why not opt for a tiered selection of wedding cupcakes? My sister had such a display at her wedding and it really was a beautiful and unique way to celebrate her special day. Couture Cupcakes gives you the same opportunity to personalise your special day. I suggest having a look at their selection online for ideas. Alternatively, why not go into the store and have a chat to the friendly staff?

Couture Cafe
This café offers a variety of meals, beverages and sweet treats throughout the day.

While the highlight of this place for me was definitely the cupcakes, it also has an adjoining coffee shop and restaurant called Espressino Café. If you are looking for something a little more substantial this café should have just what you need. All day breakfasts are available including a range of tempting egg dishes as well as a vegetarian option. Breakfasts range in price from $11.90 to $19.90. Additionally, you can order from a selection of light meals, sandwiches, paninis, deli items, salads and burgers. These meals range in price from a mere $3 to $14.50 making dining out very affordable. To finish off your meal, you can also choose from the rainbow of macaroons available as well as a selection of sweet gluten free options.

Outdoor Dining
Casual outdoor dining is the ideal way to start or finish any day.

The variety of deliciously fresh meals on offer should satisfy anyone looking for a simple, healthy meal. Furthermore, the usual beverages are available to quench your thirst such as a variety of coffees, teas, milkshakes, frappes, juices and soft drinks. This Bardon based boutique bakery and café combination is the perfect place to drop by with friends or family at any time of day. Opening hours are 8am to 6pm from Monday to Saturday giving you ample opportunity to sample the array of items on the menu. Indulge yourself and your loved ones by sharing a light meal, coffee or sweet celebration. Couture Cupcakes and Espressino Café give you the opportunity to celebrate the sweeter things in life every day.
