My first bite of Kisses Bakery's salted caramel cupcake (before this food tasting session) was definitely memorable. My eyes literally widened in response to how delightful my my taste buds were at that moment and I think I said more than one "wow". Angel bought it for Irfan, and it being salted caramel (I love almost anything caramel/salted caramel), my taste buds' interest were piqued; so I asked if I could have a bite just to try. I really wasn't expecting that reaction from myself and of course, I had more than one bite hahahaha. It was too good.
Irfan, knowing that I wanted to make a trip down one day (Tiong Bahru is kinda out of the way for me) so that I can have one whole cupcake to myself, decided to bring me there on my birthday (which was in August). After that visit, I made another one more visit before this food tasting session. I am really thrilled to be doing this review for them. Blogging for brands/companies you truly love/are a fan of is the best really. :)
And when I came, they already had my cupcakes for the food tasting all lined up and ready!
Meet Phil, one of the owners of Kisses Bakery.
Did you know that Kisses Bakery only sells the cupcakes made on the day itself, so your cupcake is definitely fresh out of the oven! If their cupcakes sell out before closing time, they won't bake anymore and close the shop early. But if there are cupcakes left when it's already time to close the shop, they will give them to the needy, so no wastage! *thumbs up!*
I reached at about 2 plus 3 and that's all the cupcakes they have left already! (above picture)
You can see their cupcake menu with the description of each cupcake here.
According to the arrangement in the above picture:
Funfetti - Salted Caramel - Peanut Butter Choc Chip
Kaya - Mocha Chocolate - Rose Caramel
Chocolate - White Chocolate Raspberry - Red Velvet
Their best-sellers are Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Choc Chip. My number one favourite? Salted Caramel without a doubt!
Me with my salted caramel cupcake! Hehe.
This was taken with the phone, so pardon the quality!
My second favourite's the Peanut Butter Choc Chip. Both are delightfully sublime though!! Honestly, I think they have the best salted caramel cupcake in Singapore. (compared to the ones I've tried so far la) Their cake is also what makes them stand out. It's not loose so it doesn't like crumble/fall apart? That's what I call a true good cake. Lol.
If you love coffee, strong coffee especially, you gotta try Mocha Chocolate. The coffee taste is strong!
And if you like bandung, then you gotta try Rose Caramel. Think bandung with caramel. Haha.
And this month's special flavour - Earl Grey Orange cupcake!
I was so happy when I knew it was earl grey, I love earl grey so much! My 21st birthday cake's earl grey hahaha. And this cupcake, combined with the orange-infused cake was just brilliant! It's a harmonious blend between fragrant and fresh in one bite.
With the boyfriend. He was looking forward to try the cupcakes after hearing me (and our mutual friends) rave about it all the time hahaha.
If you drive, you must know that they have a "drive-through"! Just call beforehand to place your order and then drive through to collect them without getting out of the car! Awesome, isn't it!
Love the very retro-looking store front.
Like them on Facebook here!
(I honestly think they deserve lots of love from you guys because not only do they serve superbly delicious and pretty looking cupcakes, they are really friendly people too! So, what's there not to like? Hehe)
