Bad Week – Cupcake Central

Hello Everyone 🙂

Hope you’ve all had a great week so far ~ I have definitely had one of the worse weeks this year… people around me just seem to pick fights with me and honestly it’s for the smallest and most insignificant things…then everyone just seems to expect so much from me all the time…and to top all that… I had a pretty bad fall a few nights ago and have hurt my back. So my physio suggested that I stay home to rest…but I don’t think my manager was too happy about that which just puts even MORE stress on me ARGHHH I’m sorry everyone! I just really needed to let it all out!

Anyhow, to make all the troubles go away…the only way was to have even MORE desserts LOL I’m sure most readers in Melbourne would have heard and have visited Cupcake Central ~ but I only tried it for the first time a few weeks ago and all I can think about is going back and getting every single FLAVOUR they have!

Lotsa cupcakes ~

There are currently two Cupcake Central stores, one in Hawthorn Glenferrie Road and the other is at Melbourne Central ~ I love the story of owner Sheryl and how she started ‘Cupcake Central’, she was working at an IT professional until she was made redundant in 2009. She then started her own blog and website selling cupcakes and eventually opened her first store in 2010. It’s very inspiring ~ because it’s a great example of ‘Dreams Really Do Come True! And I can relate because I’m working at a IT company right now and even though I love the people that I work with, I’d eventually love to work in an industry or field that is ‘food’ related hehe.

Mr Bao and I have ‘Date Night’ every Friday so after dinner at Snag Stand (will blog about it soon), I dragged him up to Cupcake Central and got cupcakes. We had a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ coupon from the Entertainment book so it only cost us $4AUD for two cupcakes *WIN* 🙂

We got there pretty late, there were only a couple of flavours available – Apple Pie, Butter Popcorn, Red Velvet, Cookies and Cream, Raspberry and Banana split. Mr Bao had craved for ‘apple pie’ and ‘apple crumble’ so he immediately chose the Apple Pie flavour.

Apple Pie Cupcake $4AUD

I was really impressed with the Apple Pie cupcake, it was so moist and there were actual apple pieces in the cupcake! The buttercream icing was so smooth and delish! Mr Bao even said ‘Hey hun, I’ve had my apple pie fix, so you don’t need to make it for me anymore…I don’t want you to make a mess’. Hahaha I was a little hurt…but I agree it was DELICIOUS! Wonder if I can try and make an apple pie cupcake at home too?~

Can you see the apple pieces? 🙂

I immediately wanted to get the ‘Butter Popcorn’ cupcake, but then…I saw the Red Velvet and I couldn’t go pass a Red Velvet cupcake because I’m STILL reminiscing the one from Crumbs Bake Shop hehe.

Butter Popcorn Cupcakes $4AUD

The main problem I have with most cupcakes is the actual ‘cake’ part…more often than not…they’re really dry and slightly tasteless…but their Red Velvet cupcake really impressed me! It was so so so moist and delicate in the mouth! The cream cheese buttercream was lovely too, but I think it could have had a ‘stronger’ cream cheese flavour. But other than that it was one of the most AMAZING cupcakes I’ve had for a while!

Red Velvet Cupcake $4AUD

SO moist YAY!

I’m definitely going to go back for more Cupcakes ~ and I’m interested in their Cupcake Workshop Masterclasses which they have on weekends, you get a baking kit, cupcake mix, frosting mix and 8 cupcakes to take home YAY! Is anyone interested in doing it with me? 😀

Now that I’ve had my cupcake fix I’m feeling much better! Thank you everyone who have left me those kind and caring tweets and comments ~ It means a lot to me to receive so much love and support from you!

      Thanks Uru 🙂 even though it was a horrible week at least I think this week is a lot better…even though it’s only Monday hehe ~ these amazing cupcakes sure made me feel so much better 😀 Ohhh i think i remember trying Cupcake bakery but didn’t like it much sigh let me know when you do come to melbourne i’ll take you to cupcake central my treat!

  5. I hope you are recovering after your fall. If your manager gives you problems about it, I would speak to your manager’s manager. If you are sick, you have every right to stay home and recover. Don’t worry about it:)
    The cupcakes look so sweet. I just ate a chocolate souffle for breakfast (why? I do not know…it was there on the bench and told me to eat it) and now I am all sweetened out hehe.

    I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had a bad week and that to make it worse, you had a fall! That is not good. I do hope you get better soon, Daisy. I love the story the IT professional changing direction to do something she really loves and it turns into a big success. Your turn soon Daisy! I think I would have liked to have tried the banana split cupcake – I’m intrigued. If I was in Melbourne I would love to do this course with you xx

    Somehow I’ve missed a lot of your posts. I’ve just subscribed so that should sort the issues! I love honey joys. Yes, they are simple but delicious. I’m not sure if they are Australian. I know we used to eat them in NZ. I think the recipe used to be on the back of the cornflakes packet xx

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet May 29, 2012 at 10:50 am Reply

      I’m sorry that you’ve missed my posts Charlie 🙂 really hope the subscription will work and that you wont miss any more ~ thank you for the continuous support if it still doesn’t work just let me know and i’ll email WordPress cuz it hasn’t been working well lately 😦

      Thank you for dropping by my blog 🙂 I’m still working on my photography skills lol

    Oh you poor thing! It’s awful that bad things so often come in threes. Just remember that when people say nasty things, it’s almost always to do with their own unhappiness, and they’re just looking for something to lash out at. Just stay strong in who you are. As for being overloaded and stressed, well… sometimes it feels like that’s all life is, so we must create boundaries and say no sometimes! I truly hope your back starts to feel better soon (REST UP! 😛 ) and yay for cupcakes!

    And that is the end of my long-winded comment 😛

    • Daisy@Nevertoosweet May 29, 2012 at 11:53 am Reply

      Thank you Hannah 🙂 I’m feeling much better now 🙂 But i agree when one things bad…the whole week is usually horrible but i’m so glad it’s over now yay! And I agree…. people sometimes get to overwhelmed and stressed that they simply lash out and take their anger on others…but honestly it’s not fair…. I’m trying to learn how to say ‘no’ too and not put up with some stuff hehe

      My backs still sore but recovering nicely ~ I think I’m just gonna have more cupcakes hehe that’ll be even better WAKAKA

    Hey Daisy, sorry to hear about all that. I hope things are a lot better now, that people aren’t being bitches anymore and that your body is healing 🙂

    I’m not a cupcake fan but out of all the cupcake stores in Melbourne, I think I do prefer this one over the others. I have the Entertainment book too so I will definitely take advantage of the offer – the butter popcorn one sounds delectable. Yums!
