Standing in the class room environment at Karricks Institute attending a cupcake decorating and macaron master class in not how I normally spend my Saturday's. But it was a very nice change.
Lamb and I booked the class using a coupon website (living social) way back in December and this was one of the first classes we were able to get in to - these things sold like hotcakes, well like cupcakes anyway! The class ran from 10-4pm and I was completely excited about becoming a master of the macaron ... Read More
Cupcakes are a topic I could happily discuss with you for some time, so when I had the chance to try out one of Melbourne new buzz cupcakeries, Cupcakes by Paolo, I was quite excited.

It has an AMZING and rotating "cupcake central calendar" ... Read More
Happy Cupcake Week!
Fancy a lil cupcake?
Little Cupcakes is perhaps the first of Melbourne's cupcake cafes (how strawberry shortcake does that sound?) and is totally cute! I believe it opened in 2007 with the first store opening on Degrave but now there are three in the city.
I had walked past the sweet little shop a number of times and it always made me smile with it's gorgeous window display making it look like something from a Disney village (I am not sure if that's the right term but ... Read More
