My Perfect Friday: Cupcakes from Marmalade

cupcake from Marmalade

Itty bitty cupcakes from Marmalade.

Inspired by Honey Star's post, dear sweet Boo_licious purchased these gorgeous babies and brought them along when we had lunch together today.

Tiny, bite-sized pieces priced at RM2 for two cupcakes, they brought an instant smile to all our faces. The vanilla cupcakes, reminiscent of cakes of yore with sugar icing, were a blast from the past.

Aaaah. If only all Fridays would be like today. Have a wonderful weekend, dear readers!

haha is tht a pair of chopsticks i spy on which ur cupcake is balanced? ;p

Lyrical Lemongrass said...


Yup!! We were having hakka noodles at a coffeeshop while savouring the cupcakes. Note how tiny they are. Cupcake is placed on chopsticks balanced on a tiny plastic saucer (used to hold cut chillies/soysauce).

Looks like we went on a cupcake rampage this weekend. They're all yummy - this old fashioned type and the new fangled ones with the lemon twang.
