I have always been a fan of Twelve Cupcakes eversince last year, when I first brought home one of their Vanilla Chocolate cupcakes. It was love at first bite.

Like all the other cupcakes, the chocolate cupcake with a vanilla cream cheese frosting, was moist, rich and not too sweet. But most of all, it was delicious and oh-so-good, I wished I had bought more.

Other kinds of chocolate cupcakes include Chocolate Chocolate (with chocolate cream cheese), PB Chocolate (with peanut butter as the topping) and Strawberry Chocolate (with strawberry buttercream). There are also other flavoured ones like Rainbow Vanilla (vanilla cupcake with cream cheese frosting with rainbow sprinkles) and Espresso (espresso buttercream on a coffee cupcake) for those who aren't much of a chocolate fan.

These flavored cupcakes are sold everyday, along with two different Special cupcakes each day. Every month, new Special Cupcakes are added, making cupcake lovers, like me, very curious and excited about the flavours. So this month's Special flavours, Salted Caramel Banana, Nutella and Rose on a Rose, really tempted me to try them.

And I did. The Nutella cupcake had a nutella centre and it was packed with chocolate hazelnut flavour, which I really enjoyed. The Salted Caramel Banana is truly awesome - i don't know how they came up with pairing moist yummy banana cake with a salted caramel frosting! It is really good and it is now one of my favourite cupcakes. The Rose on a Rose looked really pretty with the pink rose frosting. It tasted like air bandung (drink made with rose cordial syrup) and I was pleasantly surprised to see a very pink cupcake for the first time. Altogether, it was a lovely and yummy cupcake.

There is also another new cupcake flavour which is now sold everyday for the rest of April - Caramel Apple Cinnamon. It sounds yummy, though I am not a fan of the apple cinnamon flavor, but I guess I'll be going back to Twelve Cupcakes to try it then.

Besides the yummy food, the service is good. The employees at the counter were very friendly and polite. I couldn't rate about the ambience since I have never actually eaten my cupcakes at the place itself before . But I hope I can try it someday.

Visited their store at United Square, good ambience, friendly sales assistant and good cupcakes. Tried their red velvet cupcake, the sponge of the cake is nice however the cream cheese that goes on top of the sponge is slightly too sweet for me.

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.

It was my friend's 18th Birthday so we wanted to surprise her with something special and unique. Everyone expects a cake for their birthday which is a little dull so we came up with the genius idea of getting cupcakes for her birthday. Since she was turning 18, needless to say we decided to get her 18 cupcakes!

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!

Twelve cupcakes is located conveniently in United Square mall. Featuring cupcakes of unique flavours and design, Twelve Cupcakes never fails to wow and inspire consumers with their wide selection of cupcakes. Every time I head down to United Square, I pop by Twelve Cupcakes for a visit. Although its prices are rather steep for cupcakes, I must say that their cupcakes do indeed perform well based on taste and appearance. My favourite cupcakes include the red velvet and chocolate. The toppings are also lovely- I enjoy the peanut butter cream the most, followed by the cream cheese. The serving portions are also small because the cupcakes are rich in flavour. I like it!

I really do enjoy the cupcakes from twelve cupcakes! My personal favorites are the red velvet and cookies and cream. When you bite into each cupcake, there is a adequate amount of cream cheese topping and cake you get in each bite which is delightful. The cupcake is very moist and delicious by itself. It is quite expensive and I think it would be better if it was slightly cheaper. The theme of white, black and pink of twelve cupcakes shops are very classic and chic. It is an apt ambiance for the delicious cupcakes they serve. I am really enticed each time I walk past a branch! I would love to go back more often however the prices are too steep for my liking currently.

Instagram-able delicious mini cakes
Overall Score 
 
4.0
I was first attracted into the shop by the classy yet cute designs of the cupcakes. They looked simply irresistible, and since my first purchase I have been hooked. My favourite flavour is the peanut butter and jam, with the savoury topping atop a vanilla cupcake. Yum!

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.

Lovely cups of goodness

Ever since Twelve Cupcakes opened an outlet at IMM, as a west sider, I've been frequenting the outlet to satisfy my sweet tooth once in a while.

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.

Whenever I feel like something sweet, twelve cupcakes if always there to satisfy my cravings. With 15 outlets all over Singapore and reasonably priced cupcakes, there's a flavour for everyone at twelve cupcakes.

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.

I have always been a fan of the cupcake's "ugly cousin" - the muffin, as I find that muffins are usually tastier even though they are lacking in the "good looking" aspect. Most cupcakes that I have tried look extremely pretty but are usually tasteless, bland, or just plain awful.

To my surprise, Twelve Cupcakes has rather good cupcakes. I decided to try them after hearing many of my friends' praises about them and they did not disappoint. Most of their cupcakes are moist and full of flavor, with an abundance of toppings and whipped cream. Give their red velvet flavour a try - it is one of my favourites! Plus, it looks super appealing with its' red interior and cute heart shaped fondant decorating.

However, I found the cupcakes a tad too tiny for my liking. A few bites and poof! One cupcake is gone. I guess that this is the standard size of most cupcakes though. Perhaps it is also due to their deliciousness that I can't help but to want more!

Overall, a pretty good cupcake store to patronise. It's ambience is also welcoming and warm, making you feel all cozy while enjoying a few good cupcakes with family and friends.

Right amount of sweetness at the right size
Overall Score 
 
3.5
Twelve cupcakes is definitely the most publicized cupcake bakery in Singapore. I need not say more. Having 2 celebrity couple as the owners, it is bound to enjoy a whole lot of free publicity. Twelve cupcakes are expanding very quickly. If I am not wrong, in a span of 1year, they quickly expanded to 4 outlets!

The first time I tried Twelve cupcakes was at their newest outlet (Bugis Junction). I like how their signboard looks. Simple yet classy. If you visit their outlet, you would see very scrumptious looking cupcakes placed in their transparent glass counter. Cupcakes are priced at $3 each or $3.50 for the special of the day. Honestly speaking, the serving size is pretty small when I first saw it. However, once I eat it, I feel that the sizes of the cupcakes are just right and I am left satisfied without feeling stuffed. I ordered the chocolate chocolate flavour and I love how their cakes are light, fluffy and super moist, with just the right amount of sweetness!
