I actually didn't know of this little bakery until a colleague told us about it. Apparently, it is a really popular bakery specializing in halal cupcakes where the demand always exceeds the supply. Because of this, we went early, before 1pm. Fortunately, the shop was opened for business despite a "closed" sign. There was also quite a queue there and the cupcakes were so popular and moved so fast that the staff barely seemed to have the time to restock the display which looked kind of bare. Make
There are supposed to be over 80 kinds of flavours but only 6 flavours are sold per day, although the popular Nutella Red Velvet and Salted Caramel seem to be a permanent fixture on the menu. This shop is also a firm believer of pushing the boundaries when it comes to creating innovative flavours such as Horlicks Dinosaur, Gingerbread Maple Liquid Cheesecake, Boston Cream Pie and Green Apple Yakult Lemon! The flavours available when we went included the Nutella Red Velvet, Salted Caramel, Spiced Pumpkin Salted Caramel Latte, Mango, Lavender Blueberry and Peanut Butter Salted Dark Chocolate Cashew Bark. Quite a mouthful!
Being a fan of Nutella, I was initially planning to get the Nutella Pie and the Nutella cupcake but was disappointed that the pie was sold out even though they started selling at 12pm and we were there before 1pm! You can certainly see how popular this bakery is! My second choice was to get the Nutella Red Velvet cupcake and Salted Caramel cupcake, but just right before ordering, another staff brought out a new batch of Peanut Butter cupcakes which I found pretty, so I quickly substituted the Salted Caramel for it! Nutella Red Velvet Cupcake ($4.00)
The cupcake was moist and the frosting was thick and flavourful! There was a decent amount of Nutella filling in the center too! I like that the cupcake was not very sweet or overloaded with sugar like some cupcakes can be. Peanut Butter Salted Dark Chocolate Cashew Bark Cupcake ($4.00)
This was moist and quite fluffy and there was a really creamy peanut butter taste which I simply adore! To my surprise, there was a chocolate filling in the middle of the cupcake which I did not expect (I was expecting peanut butter). Despite that, this was not too sweet either and there was also a hint of saltiness. Prior to tasting the cupcakes, I had initially thought that I'd like the Nutella Red Velvet cupcake better, but I was surprised to discover that I actually preferred this Peanut Butter cupcake more! My colleagues also bought the other flavours which was well-received by everyone in the office!
Overall, I'd definitely recommend Fluff Bakery if you are a fan of cupcakes! The shop is usually open until the cupcakes are sold out, so you definitely need to go early to prevent any disappointment. Also be prepared to queue for a bit. The prices for all the cupcakes are $4.00, which some may find a tad pricey. But I think these are quite worth it. The cupcakes are moist and each are cored by hand and filled with specially created surprise center filling that is rich but yet not so sweet! Of course, I don't claim to have tried all of their flavours, but try the Salted Caramel if you want a safer option. If you are adventurous and don't mind teasing your palate with a whimsical mix of flavours, then go for anything and try a bit of everything. You'll never know if you might be surprised by a cupcake like I was with the Peanut Butter Salted Dark Chocolate Cashew Bark. It is certainly worthwhile to keep an open mind when you are at Fluff Bakery!
