I'm an aspiring writer living in Perth. I like to take the scenic route and take pleasure in the simple things in life, such as good food and good company.

You know what they say about a spoonful of sugar

The Perth food scene has been subject to various trends of the sweet variety over the years. We have seen macarons, whoopie pies, cronuts and donuts grace the counters of cafes and bakeries alike. It all leaves me wondering about what will become the next food fad. Thankfully, my personal favourite delicacy, the humble cupcake, has remained and secured a timeless, crowd pleasing status.

The appeal of cupcakes has further been cemented with the recent opening of The Sweet Remedy Cafe in Leederville, which specializes in the morsels. Just walking into the cafe will have your mouth watering, as the aroma of sweet, freshly baked and buttery cupcakes fill the air.

Lack of choice is not a problem at The Sweet Remedy, as the display cabinet is filled to the brim with all sorts of different cupcakes that will whet your appetite. Think red velvet, cookies and cream, chocolate hazelnut, lemon meringue and more.

Lo and behold: The Salted Caramel Cupcake

After much indecision, I decided on the Salted Caramel cupcake and my companion chose Strawberries and Cream. The presentation of the cupcakes alone is very impressive and a fabulous novelty. Even before I took my first mouthful, I was delighted.

The cupcakes themselves do not fail to deliver. The actual cake is quite dense but, nonetheless, very enjoyable. The cake isn't too crumbly either, which is a plus. The icing on top was just the right amount. I personally don't like too much icing on my cupcake, and so I was a bit wary when I noted the impressive tower sitting atop my cupcake. To my surprise, however, the icing was not sickly sweet like traditional butter cream mixtures. I have a hunch that they use Italian meringue butter cream, which is beautifully light and not overpowering.

The best part about the tasting was discovering a well of caramel sauce in the middle of my cupcake, which was finger licking good.

It's safe to say that I have now found my new go to spot for cupcakes and I intend to slowly but surely eat my way through all the flavours available. The Sweet Remedy is such a charming little cafe that ticks all the right boxes. With stunning cupcakes, a selection of savoury food, good coffee and a welcoming atmosphere, what's more to love?
