1. Cupcake Queens

It’s only right to start with the Queens of the cupcake industry in Melbourne. 

Cupcake Queens is a family owned business with an obvious love and commitment to serving up quality cupcakes Melbourne-wide along with exceptional customer service.

If you’ve ever had a fleeting thought that maybe cupcakes have been overdone, you have to check out the Cupcake Queens Giant Cupcakes! Approximately 25 centimetres high, these serve up to 20 people, (or just a family of hungry mouths, for a whole week!) and are guaranteed to drop your jaw.

My top picks for cake delivery are:

  • The Cookie Monster Cupcake – a giant chocolate cupcake with a white chocolate base, blue vanilla buttercream and chocolate chip “me want cookie!”
  • Queen Elsa in a cake! – Enjoy light blue swirls of vanilla buttercream icing and white hand cut snowflakes and silver glitter.
  • Cupcake Bouquets – a beautiful bouquet of 12 red velvet cake pops dipped in white chocolate

Get ready for the flutter of excitement when you see the pink Cupcake Queens van roll up to deliver your cupcakes.
