Moist cupcakes!

Having seen pictures of Swirls (pretty) cupcakes on Instagram, I was happy to (be able to) drop by Rodyk Street on a weekday afternoon. And I was happier to see that the cupcakes were not swept out, which I heard will normally be so by afternoon on a weekend.

And to fully utilise the takeaway box, I decided to buy 6 regular-sized ones! Ain the cupcakes prettyyyyy? I like the way the frosting is being done. So chic!

And from the display, I ordered:-

1) Very Vanilla, $3.95 (Regular)– Vanilla cupcake with vanilla butter cream frosting & sprinkles. This was so good! The cupcake was moist and dense. As the frosting was a tad too sweet (and too much too), the entire cupcake was polished with just one-third of the frosting.

2) Red Velvet, $3.95 (Regular) – Crimson chocolate cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Cupcake was dense, moist and not too sweet. A must try!

3) Nutella, $3.95 (Regular) – Chocolate cupcake with hazelnut butter cream frosting. And it's called Nutella because Swirls put nutella right in the center of the cupcake. Nice! And before I sound like a parrot, the cupcake was moist. Thumbs up!

4) Strawberry Burst, $3.95 (Regular) – This sadly did not taste as good as it looks. The cupcake was dry which was pretty evident when I sliced through the cupcake with my knife. And the bottom was slightly burnt.

5) What's Up Doc?, $3.95 (Regular) – Carrot caupcake with crushed pinapple & cream cheese frosting. Both the frosting and cupcake were not too sweet. But oddly, the cupcake left a weird after taste in the mouth. Essence is suspected to be the culprit.

6) Tuesday Special : Apple & Walnut, $4.25 (Regular)– Apple and walnut cupcake with cream cheese frosting. A must try! Cupcake was moist with generous amount of bite-able granny smith apple bits. Yummy!

Overall, the cupcakes were good. I guess the misses were probably due to a little lack of inconsistency in baking? So yes, Swirls have 101 flavours. I say, it's time to start buying (and eating) if you wish to try them all! And for the budget conscious, there's the tiny size at $2.50 (exclude special flavours which are priced differently from the regular flavours). But I say, "Get the regular sizes!" You cant really taste the goodness in the tiny size. Or should I better say, the tiny size wont be enough to satisfy your appetite! =)

Average cupcakery.

Swirls Bakeshop is an all-american cupcakery located in the sorta-difficult-to-find Rodyk Street. My friends have been talking about their cupcakes for quite some time, so my team and I hunted for the shop amidst the scorching heat to find out whether it is worth all the hype for ourselves.

NEVER AGAIN

I was very disappointed ordering cupcakes from Swirls.   Orders sent via email are only processed on weekdays. If you ordered on a Friday and expecting a delivery on Monday, call the shop or else your order will not be processed.    Staff are not aware of the order numbers/invoice numbers. From my end, everytime I follow up, I alwasy ensure that I quote the order number. I was expecting the staff to do the same but they did not. As a result, I got conflicting responses from the staff. My order was already processed the other day before but I still receive a response the next day saying that my order was not processed at all. This happened after I paid them on my order.   Packaged delivered to me was incorrect. I had to call the shop to redeliver the correct package.      Expect nothing or ditch the customization part of their cupcakes. The requested color for the cut out letter fondant was red. The package arrived with letter fondant colored pink. In my emails, I already mentioned that the cupcakes were present for a boy but I do not think they even considered that in customizing the cupcakes. The cupcakes in the package did not look well made. The letters are not in the center. The toppings were falling from the cupcakes. The swirls are not properly executed.
