Wow...so...THAT was amazeballs. There is nothing worse than hearing others bragging about their adventures when you've been stuck at work, or home so we wont bore you with every detail, (you can check our instagram account for that! haha) but will share a few snippets with you.
We obviously have a super soft spot for Melbourne, having both lived there years ago, so it was great to be able to head back for a long weekend and stop by our favourite spots, favourite markets, indulge in our favourite foods, explore the laneways, see our favourite peeps and OF COURSE check out all the cupcake shops that have popped up. Market research is certainly tough work sometimes! hehe.
Unfortunately, we didn't have time to get to all of them, but that's probably just as well, as all the taste testing was starting to take its toll! We were too full and sugared out to sample one of the famous hot chocolates at the Lindt shop! Tragic huh?!
It was awesome seeing what the cupcakeries had on offer. Different frosting styles, popular flavours, display, packaging, their shop locations and fit outs. Despite what some people think, cupcakes certainly aren't going anywhere, their versatility and appeal are long lasting, their ever increasing popularity confirm that. Even in the heart of Melbourne where there are serious foodies and tempting sweet treats all around. Cupcakes are still so many peoples 'go to' sweet treat.
And Macarons...dont get us started. A real variety of flavours, and we were blown away by these ones that were completely 'pimped' - we were also too full by that stage to tackle them, but aren't they just beautiful!?
A HUGE thanks for our amazing team who held the fort for us while we were gone. We know it was a busy one with Fathers Day, but it was so amazing knowing we had left the shop in such capable hands. Now that we've had a taste of it...we might have to do it more often...hehe...we left WAY too much behind at the markets and our beloved Ikea...
If any of you have any favourite Cupcake shops in Melbourne that we need to check out next time round, let us know. We're already planning our next adventure :)
