Twelve Cupcakes was founded by Daniel Ong and Jaime Teo. The menu was inspired by flavours she liked to bake and flavours he liked to eat. Spurred on by friends and fans, they decided to open their doors to share their pursuit of deliciousness. Using only the finest ingredients to create freshly baked cupcakes everyday, Jaime and Daniel invite you to have a taste of this bliss and share it with those around you! "At Twelve Cupcakes, we want to celebrate the simple things in life. That is why we have put the best ingredients together to create something special just for you. We know that with every bite, there will be a smile on your face." - Jaime Teo & Daniel Ong
My personal favourites are their red velvet and their chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting. The cakes are light but not overly dry (even though I would prefer them to be more moist). I also really like the cream cheese frosting that isn't too sweet. I personally really hate it when red velvet cupcakes are topped with sugary fondant instead of actual cream cheese frosting.
For one, I hate the cream cheese on the cupcakes. It's my personal preference, because I know of friends who simply love Twelve for the cream cheese. Second, the cupcakes are extremely small for their prices. They're smaller than the cupcakes from other places, but the prices are equivalent or higher.
As a fan of red velvet, I had a go at their red velvet cupcakes once. I removed the cream cheese. The cupcake was.... well. Nothing special, nothing fantastic. So I can never understand the craze over Twelve, and why they're opening up everywhere.
The tiny cakes are wrapped prettily in the cupcake paper cups, each bursting with flavour. They are moist, fresh, and fluffy, which taste so good! Twelve Cupcakes' Daily Specials always tempts me to check for new flavours. I especially love the red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting.
As the cupcake bakery opened its first outlet in Taiwan, it seems like it has gain high recognition for it's delicious cupcakes. This can be seen as Kimberley Chen, a Chinese Australian singer based in Taiwan, often posts pictures of cupcakes from Twelve Cupcakes on her Instagram.
Indeed, Twelve Cupcakes is the place to visit for a lovely cup of goodness.
The only downside of these fabulous cupcakes was the price. It might be a little expensive at $3.20 for the regular sized ones. Though a little hard on the wallet, getting them once in awhile will definitely satisfy the sweet tooth in me.
I must admit the price is not the most wallet-friendly, therefore I only splurge when I really need a sweet treat to brighten up the day.
What really gets on my nerves is that if you takeaway a single cupcake, it will be packed into this little container in a very unstable manner, resulting in the topping of the cupcake smearing everywhere by the time I reach home. This ruins the picture-perfect look of the cupcake and takes away some of the joy.
My friend has quite a big family so we let her bring home two boxes(each box has half a dozen) while we ate the remaining box. I picked up the earl grey flavoured cupcake and it tasted fantastic! You could taste the earl grey in the icing and fused with the cupcake, it was awesome! For those who are tea fanatics like me, it is a must try! But what I heard is that the earl grey flavoured one is only served on Thursdays so keep that in mind!
I love the design of the cupcake, it's simple and classy at the same time. The idea of having unique flavours only available on each day of the week makes it unique and tempting as if you want to try the specific flavours, you could only purchase it on a specific day.
I can't wait to try their green tea cupcake!
What i like and would recommend to my friend is that their cupcakes varieties on the shelves aren't stagnant. Example if you come by on Monday, they have Earlgrey & Lychee, on Tuesday, they have Peppermint Chocolate. It would be a good choice for those who likes cupcakes but doesn't want to taste the same old flavour of the cupcakes. Do check out their website as they have which flavour selling on which day.
I think it is suitable to buy these cupcakes for parties, gatherings or other events where it involves many people. However, I think it is a little expensive. I find that the staff are rather friendly with them always having a smile on their faces when serving the customers.
Priced at 3 dollars per cupcake, it is slightly expensive but they have many kinds of flavours and it brightens up your day just by looking at it so why not? This is a definite must-go place if you are feeling down. My personal favourite is their peanut butter-chocolate cupcake and the red velvet. The red velvet cupcake is moist while the chocolate peanut butter cupcake is a perfect combination of flavours.
The only downside is that there isn't anything too special about the cupcakes other than the interesting flavours and the moistness.
