A cupcake specialist tucked within the bustling bars and restaurants of Holland Village, Plain Vanilla Bakery is located at the second floor of a shophouse that's opposite of Harry's bar. Plain Vanilla Bakery offers only freshly baked goodies like cupcakes and layer cakes made with the best ingredients, such as French butter, pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, bittersweet Belgian chocolate, and many more. Flavours include red velvet, chocolate hazelnut, cinnamon brown sugar and other favourites. Be sure to try its red velvet cupcake and dark chocolate cupcake with Varlrona chocolate nibs. No artificial preservatives are used either.

 

Plain Vanilla Bakery also takes an eco-friendly approach to its business practices, using only biodegradable materials in their packaging, using recyclable paper instead. Jars are also reused for storing, and recyclables are recycled. We also encourage our customers to partake in eco-friendly actions by giving them a free cupcake each time they return their used 6-cupcake or 12-cupcake box to us; we’ll restore those boxes for reuse or have them flat-packed for recycling.

My favourite cupcakes

I am a fan of cupcakes and Plain Vanilla Bakery makes the best in Singapore IMO. I always find the cupcakes from elsewhere a bit tasteless. The ones I get here is sweetter (but not to the extent I'll worry about diabetes) and definitely better tasting. Highly receommended.  My faourite is the Chocolate stout cupcake.

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 emphasized that they have to be delivered before a certain time, which they promised. The delivery was almost an hour late, and this considering that I had paid extra for the delivery time. My $20 delivery fee was promised to be refunded, and I had to call them up 2 days after the event, and after no response to my email for 1.5 days.

Dear PVB, you need to be more prompt with this.

Being an hour late is really tardy on your part, and then to salvage the situation and make an angry customer happier, you should have gotten back to me as soon as you could regarding the refund. I really shouldn't be the one calling you up asking where's the delivery, nor asking about my refund. And you really shouldn't be giving me excuses like "we had a big cooperate delivery before yours" and "we have a lot of emails". Any customer, no matter how many cupcakes ordered, is tantamount to your growing business.

For constructive feedback about the cupcakes, which I didn’t find in reviews about the store, but most of the people at the party found the icing to be too sweet for their liking. The cupcake itself was moist and flavourful and hence well-liked.

For the cupcakes advertised to have alcohol in it (Chocolate Brandy Butter, Amaretto Eggnog), most people were disappointed to find that they could not taste any alcohol in the cupcake or the icing.
