Right in the middle of the Central business district and overwhelmed by the business environment I was in, I hunted for a quiet corner to chill and relax. Having known that twelve cupcakes had a branch at golden shoe complex, I went to try my luck.
Being pretty much hidden (turn in from Subway), it took me quite a long time to find. Perhaps, they could put more obvious markings part from the small signboard that they placed. That would certainly create much convenience for customers who are trying to find their way there.
Despite the long search, I must say that they did not disappoint me. The little cupcakes placed in the display cabinet is certainly tempting and I would really love to try them all! But well… how much could I possibly eat? In the end, I chose two different flavors, namely red velvet cupcake and the chocolate chocolate cupcake. My all-time favorite, the red velvet one is really good. It is a cupcake that is made from topping the Classic Red Velvet cupcake with vanilla cream cheese. It is a perfect match! The taste of the soft cake is complemented and enhanced by the light yet flavorful cream cheese topping; it just keeps you going back for more.
The chocolate chocolate one is good too. It is really rich and chocolaty. The moist cake is again topped with a cream cheese but this around, a chocolate flavored one is added to the cupcake. As the taste of the vanilla cream cheese remains in my mouth, the chocolate cream cheese is comparably disadvantaged. The double chocolate combination is too heavy for me. I also prefer dark chocolate among the many types of chocolate. Thus, the ideal combination of double chocolate for me is chocolate cupcake topped with 70% dark chocolate. A good mix of sweet and bitterness, this is what I deem heavenly.
With good food comes great ambience? The decorations here are rather modern and the place is really clean, however, there are too few seats and the area is very cram.
As for the service, no complains. The price is reasonable too @ $3/cupcake.
Overall, it is a good place to chill and have high tea alone, in pairs or triplets.
