Excellent cupcakes

Hands down, the best cupcakes in Singapore. I love that the recipes are different so that 2 chocolate cupcakes taste different ! I got the 6 piece consisting of Red Velvet, Cinnamon Brown Sugar, Dark Chocolate Ganache, Cookies & Cream, Strawberry White Chocolate and Salted Caramel. I'm not a fan of salted caramel in general but I loved, loved this !!! In fact, I will consider this my favorite of the 6, followed by the Strawberry one, which has an ultra cute dried strawberry head piece.
The cupcakes are $3.50 each but you get a discount for 6 or more cupcakes according to the staff.

Disappointing Experience

I would have loved to have given Plain Vanilla Bakery a positive rating, from all the raves and good reviews I've read about them. However, they have disappointed me in terms of both customer service and on a lesser extent, the cupcakes.

I ordered 48 Christmas cupcakes for a company event, and

Better than the competition

As per my heading, the cupcakes taste better in my opinion, and cheaper too at ~3 per cupcake. Tried Milk Chocolate Banana, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Hazelnut, Dark Chocolate Ganache, Milk Chocolate Chip and the vanilla flavoured one. Was serviced by an inexperienced staff.

Hard to find entrance but worth the search.

Went down to satisfy my cupcake craving but took a while to find the entrance (a small door next to unit 34 leading up to the second floor).
They have 11 flavors and can pack in 4, 6 or 12 cupcake boxes.
Not exacly cheap but really rich (at least the one I had).
Might be a bit too sweet for some
