If you're having trouble picking from the range of cupcakes on display, owner, Theo Levonis recommends the popular Red Velvet cupcake.

"The Red Velvet not only looks good but tastes amazing," Mr Levonis said.

"The Red Velvet is made of red buttermilk cake with a hint of cocoa topped with a vanilla buttercream - an original recipe from America's deep south," he said.

What makes Poppy Cakes products stand out from the rest you ask?

Every cupcake and cake is handmade and baked at the Fortitude Valley HQ store - even the butter-cream and flowers are handmade.

"We use only the best ingredients when it comes to butter, icing sugar and flour," Mr Levonis said.

"The chocolate we use is the French Valrhona Chocolate - the best in the world."

Your Comment
I'm a fan of the Red Velvet cupcakes. Tastes like red velvet should, others just use red food colouring.
