twelve cupcakes: Handmade with Love (A Singapore Food Post)

I have a really bad sweet tooth.  It's often a curse, more so now that I am trying to lose a few pounds.  But alas!  I do indulge in a sweet treat once in a while.  Good thing Singaporeans also love their sweet stuff.  In fact, the dessert offerings here are numerous!  From the local treats to western influences, you'd find them all here, as well.

I've always believed you can go wrong with a cupcake.  And one of our favorite sugary treats here in Singapore are these cute tiny cakes from local brand, twelve cupcakes.

What I love about these cuties from is that (1) they are not too sweet (silly I know, to be trying to pacify a sweet tooth with a not so... uhmm... sweet treat.); and (2) they come in just the right size -- not too small, not freakishly huge.  A single piece is enough to keep you satisfied; although you would find it hard to settle for only one.

My precioussss...

These small cakes themselves are moist and uses the best ingredients.  No scrimping on the materials used, please.

Take their Cookies and Cream cupcake -- moist chocolate cupcake with a butter cream topping mixed in with Oreo crumbs.  Heavenly...

They also have tons of flavors available (you can browse through their menu at their website).  From their Specials (which sell for S$3.50/Php116* a piece) to the usual, Everyday offerings (S$3/ Php99*), with their own take on classic favorites.

Red Velvet

My favorite?  Their Chocolate Chocolate cupcake, so good it's named twice.  Simply perfect for chocolate lovers.
