While the novelty of cupcakes in America has worn off, Australia is still heady about the dainty small cake. This pop culture trend in the culinary world is still spawning bakeries devoted entirely to them especially in Sydney and Melbourne.
Such is the story behind Cupcake Central, one of Melbourne's new darlings in Melbourne Central. It was inspired by a sweet vanilla cupcake in the infamous Magnolia Bakery in New York. After loads of passion and perspiration, the business has taken off with 3 stores opened in 3 years.
My afternoon treat arrived in short time. I wasn't expecting much of the coffee. Surprising the latte arrived with a rich aroma and defined rosetta. While the coffee was weaker compared to my usual brew from Market Lane, it was still a satisfying brew.
