If you're hanging around the Canberra Times Fountain you'd be hard pressed to miss Jazz Apple Cafe. While the small cupcake store might be on the corner of one of the buildings, but their signs loudly proclaim their location. They call their cupcakes "music for your mouth", but these cupcakes are a treat for your eyes too.
There's a huge range of cupcakes available at Jazz Apple. Of course you can find regular flavours like vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet, but they also have plenty of unusual flavours you might not have come across before. See if you can be tempted by red skin, neapolitan, cinnamon donut, banana split, and turkish delight. The flavours available in store change weekly, so you'll always be able to try something different. There are even vegan cupcakes available.
While the flavours are interesting, the best bit about these cupcakes is how incredibly moist they are. Even after a few days of sitting around your house, they still manage to stay nice and fresh. Kids will love the bright colours and fun decorations. Some of the flavours can be a little bit too sweet, so these cupcakes might not be to everyone's taste.
The store is as bright and colourful as the cupcakes. Fake cupcakes are strewn around the store, they even have a cupcake ferris wheel. You can sit inside or outside, and there are a range of drinks available with your cupcakes. You can also grab a half-dozen to go and take your cupcakes to the nearby Civic Carousel.
If you're after cupcakes for a special occasion, Jazz Apple can also provide larger orders. You're best organising these in advance rather than trying to just grab them from the store, that way you can guarantee you get the flavours you like.
Jazz Apple Cafe is open 5 days a week, 9am-5:30pm Monday-Thursday, 9am-7pm Friday, and 9am-5:30pm Saturday.
