5 Cupcake Outlets to Check Out Around Klang Valley
Cupcakes are little fun-sized treats that may be topped with frosting, sprinkles or pastry cream and served for special occasions. Cupcakes have evolved from merely being “a cake to be baked in small cups” to many different variants such as butterfly cake, cake ball, gourmet cupcake, and even cupcake imposters whereby the cupcakes are baked and decorated to resemble another food item! The cupcake boom in recent years is probably due to the fact that baking and consuming these delightfully sweet creations give both the bakers and their customers pure joy.
