Twelve Cupcakes has been dubbed 'the best cupcakes' in Singapore and this quint cupcake franchise has found its way to our Malaysians shore, setting up shop in the ever busy Sunway Pyramid.
Why twelve you ask?
Let's see, 12 months in a year, 12 zodiac signs, 12 animal signs...
Fortunately that doesn't mean only 12 flavours because Twelve Cupcakes definitely has a lot to offer with over 40 flavours to choose from. Their cupcakes are baked daily from scratch and topped with smooth flavoured icing.
Thanks to an invitation from Isabel, myself, Senri and Elie got to taste their best-sellers and everyday flavours such as the Strawberry Vanilla and Rainbow Vanilla cupcakes. The Strawberry Vanilla had a nice combination of fruity sweet and rich vanilla, a good option for those who doesn't have a sweet tooth. However we all agreed that the Rainbow Vanilla was too sweet, possibly due to its frosting.
The trio in the photo above are Nutella, Chocolate Salted Caramel and Mudslide. The Nutella was a disappointment as there isn't enough Nutella filling inside. There can't never be too much of Nutella so to the owners, please fill it up with Nutella. Inside and on top. As for the middle Chocolate Salted Caramel, I expected a more salty kick to its icing but sadly, that was missing too. Either that or the sweetness of the chocolate and first few cupcakes had dulled my taste buds. And last but not least, the Mudslide was a surprisingly quite good as there were three chewy bits of marshmallows atop of the chocolate based cupcake. This one is best served with black coffee to balance out its taste.
In the picture, you have, from front, the Cookies and Cream, Red Velvet and Chocolate Chocolate. I didn't get to try the Cookies and Cream but according to Elie Lam, it was yummy. But the Red Velvet was delicious! I brought home two, meaning to share it with the family only for my sister and I to gobble up both before the end of the day. Topped with a nice smooth cream cheese topping, the cupcake is moist and sweet, making it the company's best seller. Finally, we had the Chocolate Chocolate which was just above average for the texture of its cupcake.
