Small, sugary and delicious, cupcakes are a long-standing favourite among small kids, big kids and grown-ups alike. What's not to love about a mini sponge cake, plenty of icing and adorable decoration? 

Cupcakes in Sydney have become a veritable work of art in recent years, thanks to their versatility, manageable portions and infinite decorating potential. From baby showers to engagement parties, kids' birthdays and everything in between, we happen to think cupcakes are always a good idea.
