Every cupcake we create looks like art and tastes like dessert. Our team is constantly experimenting, improving and pushing when it comes to our cupcake designs and flavours.

Visit our store!
Seeing the cupcakes online, and visiting our bakery in Johannesburg, are two different experiences. If you’re planning an event, we suggest having a look online to get a feel for our products, and then scheduling a visit to our store to chat through your ideas with one of our team members. You could also call, WhatsApp or email us, to chat about your event. Or, why wait for an event? Swing by for a cappuccino or a Unicorn Latte, grab a seat at our Decorating Room and watch our cake artists work their magic.
For those who are on the move and need to satisfy that cupcake craving, there is no need to pre-order, because who’s got time to pre-empt a craving?! Our cupcakes are ready-to-go, 7 days a week. And if you grab a Best Ever Brownie, Nutella Shot or Unicorn Shake while you’re there, we won’t even judge. Wink wink.
A Tip to Preserve the Fresh Taste
Our cupcakes are best enjoyed on the day you’ve bought them. If you’re not planning on tucking into them right away, firstly, congratulations! You’ve got superhuman discipline. Secondly, you can keep them in a closed container at room temperature for up to three days. Whatever you choose to do, do not refrigerate our cupcakes! They get cold and dry and lonely. For longer-term storage, a better option would be to freeze them on the day of purchase, in an airtight container, and you can enjoy them up to a week or two later.
Order online, or visit our store to buy the best cupcakes in Johannesburg. Oh, and be sure to check out our Instagram for behind-the-scenes stories, new product alerts, giveaways, and general #dessertgoals shenanigans.
