Our cupcakes runneth over
Writer: SOLITAIRE FOO – In recent years, we’ve had a wave of cupcake madness in Singapore as stalls, cafes, bakeries and coffee joints competed to produce the most interesting, tastiest and prettiest cupcakes. These days, the emphasis is not only on appearances but healthier alternatives. Once you’re over the CNY bingeing, and need a sweet little something treat, here are my favourite cupcake places.
