Poppy Cakes at the Emporium in Fortitude Valley

Simones Passion with selection

Cupcake Porn recently dropped by Poppy Cakes in Brisbane to try out a few of their wonderful creations.

Unfortunately for us, we arrived late in the day on New Years Eve and their store had been overrun by New Years Revelers preparing for a big night of partying. 

The remaining selection was a bit limited, but we powered on and ordered a small batch of the tasty treats that remained.


The Red Velvet Cupcakes caught our eye immediately.   They looked very distinctive with their red tinged base and cute little red flower toppings.

The next one we selected was Simone’s Vanilla Passion Cupcake which had very crunchy and flavour filled passion fruit seeds in the icing which we found to be very tasty indeed.

This was quickly followed by the Lemon Poppy Seed Cupcake which was the tastiest of the entire selection.  The lemon zest was in both the cake and the icing which blended together beautifully.  This was probably our favourite cupcake from our selection today.

Our last selection was a simple Vanilla Cupcake.  This did have green icing, and looked exactly like the Low-Gluten Vanilla shown on their site, but it really was just a nice simple Vanilla Cupcake.

We are looking forward to visiting Poppy Cakes again sometime soon, and we recommend that if you are in the area that you drop by and try some for yourself :)

Why not buy a few cupcakes and try to make your own Cupcake Porn at home? 

It’s easy, and everyone can do it!
