Founded by local celebrity couple Daniel and Jamie Teo in July 2011, Twelve Cupcakes has been growing rapidly in the midst of its success and strong support from its customers. The reason behind this support can be attributed to the freshly baked cupcakes that are handmade from scratch daily using quality gourmet ingredients. Cupcakes come in many flavours at Twelve Cupcakes, with everyday flavours like cookies and cream, red velvet, and salted caramel banana, and special daily flavours. The cupcakes are moist, fluffier and less sweet than less cupcakes, and are covered with a light smooth frosting. Today, Twelve Cupcakes has outlets not just in Singapore, but also in areas like Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taipei, and Manila.

Lovely, moist cupcakes

I love these cupcakes! They are fluffy, soft and moist, and really satisfy the sweet cravings. But at the same time, they don't stuff you up. The flavours they bake are also interesting and the Daily Specials make me want to continuously return to check out what is available for the day.

My personal favourites are the Choc Chip and the Mudslide ones, because I love chocolate! But the salted caramel and banana caramel ones are also just as good.

Too much hype, not enough substance

Most of these Cupcakes taste the same, there isn't really anything special about them. Not worth the price.

Twelve Cupcakes' cupcakes

Pictures of Twelve Cupcakes - Very nice :http://mrupupup.blogspot.sg/2013/03/twelve-cupcakes-cupcakes.html

Mrupupup finally tried the Twelve Cupcakes! Mrupupup had the cupcake which was red velvet with very nice cream cheese on top (and a cute heart also). Thanks to a generous sponsor, Mrupupup could smell the other the cupcakes but could not eat. Haha! Could not take all the cupcakes if not friends would scold Mrupupup. Wa, Twelve Cupcake was really nice. Mrupupup thought cupcake was a simple food, but Twelve Cupcake was nice, fluffy, not too sweet and not oily, buttery (taste was just nice!). Noticed from the website each box of 6 costs $17 and $33 for a dozen, not really cheap though. Ok, more sponsors of Twelve Cupcakes please, Mrupupup would gladly eat the cupcakes up. Mrupupup would like to try the other flavours like chocolate, green tea, mocha, vanilla, and cookies & cream. Eating a cupcake just makes one Happy, did make Mrupupup delighted!

Overrated

Due to the hype this place has been generating, I was curious to try out their fare. The cupcakes were a tad too small for a big man like me and at $3 each really expensive I felt. But as long as the pastry is delicious, it is still worth it I thought. Tried three flavours namely chocolate chocolate, cookies and cream and peanut butter. Three mouth full and they were all gone. Tasted so so compared to other cupcakes I've tried. Overpriced and overrated. Wondering how they can open 8 branches. Guess Singaporeans just like to be ripped off. :/

Delicious Red Velvet Cupcake

Pictures Here

Truth to be told, i’ve never exactly believed in the concept of having cupcakes as my perception of them have been portrayed as dry and bland muffins, just like hockey pucks, especially when a petite one here already costs a good $3 each which seem’s on the pricey side. Nonetheless, the huge array of at least 10 over different flavors left me spoilt for choice where I eventually chose the 3 best sellers, as recommended by the service staff.

My favorite of the three definitely had to be the Red Velvet where the buttermilk infused cupcake was moist and fluffy, with a subtle cocoa flavor. The Cream Cheese frosting on top was extremely delicious as well, rounding off the cupcake with a delicate sweet but yet savory flavor that was extremely fulfilling! The PB & Chocolate cupcake was competent as the peanut butter frosting had a smooth consistency that didn’t overpower the lusciously rich chocolate cupcake. The Cookies & Cream was largely uninspiring where it was basically an Oreo biscuit in the form of a cupcake.

Verdict: 7.0/10. Cupcakes can be quite delicious after all, especially the Red Velvet one that totally won me over with it’s decadent cream cheese frosting.!Hopefully the quality of cupcakes made on a daily basis are consistently maintained and I would definitely be back for more when in the area.
