Once again it’s time for one of the highlights of a food blogger’s calendar – the Sugadeaux Cupcake Tasting night!

Last time we trialled eight full-sized cupcakes, this time we tried five miniature cupcakes from the newest collection. It’s commendable that a small business like Sugadeaux is constantly innovating with new ingredient combinations and values the feedback of their friends, customers and bloggers to keep inviting us back!

First up was Funfetti, a vanilla custard flavoured base with sprinkles baked inside the cake. The super-sweet cake was topped with vanilla frosting and white chocolate freckle. Pair that with some fairy bread and red cordial and you’ll be taken back to your memories of kid’s birthday parties.

A unusually strong-flavoured green tea cake with matcha green tea frosting topped with a sprinkle of black sesame. I am normally a fan of green tea flavoured sweets but I found the savour nuttiness of the tea almost too overwhelming in this case.

My second favourite, blueberry pie. Gorgeously moist vanilla cake topped with intensely flavoured blueberry frosting (you can see the real blueberries used) with some pie crust crumbs.

Despite having lived in North America for six months, I’ve never tried combining peanut-butter and strawberry jam. Well, the PB&J cupcake may convince me – a vanilla cake oozing a filling of strawberry jam (but not enough to make the cake soggy) with a flourish of richly flavoured peanut butter frosting. My favourite cupcake!

The final cupcake was the Choc Pretzel – a moist chocolate cake with a salted vanilla frosting. The crunchy, slightly salty pretzels had been dipped in Spanish milk and dark chocolate and custom-made for Sugadeaux by a chocolate factory in Kew.

The new flavours will be appearing in Sugadeaux‘s next sample pack from 21 April. The sample pack contains each of the five cupcakes for $20 and is available for pickup from South Yarra or delivery.

Thanks to Sugadeaux for inviting me to the event.

  1. I desperately need to try a PB & J cupcake as soon as possible. Sounds so good!

  2. The smaller cupcakes are so much easier to eat. Blueberry and pb and j are so creative. Again, great photo work.

  3. I don’t how can people manage to eat them. They are so cute and in beautiful shape that I just want to look at them. I don’t have guts to ruin them by eating. :D
